Philips has launched two new smartphones “sapphire life V787” and sapphire s616 with the anti-blue screen.

Scientist and researchers in the past have recommended people not to extensively use smartphones late night before going to sleep as the blue light can impact the quality of sleep. But as most users check out their favorite content on mobiles before sleeping a less harmful display can be advantageous for next generation of mobiles.

It is difficult to quantify how much benefit Phillips mobiles will have on the quality of sleep, but Phillip says the display is more eye-friendly than what is currently used by other smartphones.
