The reMarkable is a paper tablet. It lets you read, write and sketch with a paper-like feel. It is to replace your notebooks, sketchbooks and printed documents.
The CANVAS display was built from the ground-up together with our R&D partner E Ink. It's designed to closely mimic the appearance of real paper, including the surface friction. There are a range of technologies that are part of the CANVAS display, and it's partially powered by E Ink Carta generation electronic paper.
The shadow of a previous image can sometimes remain visible on the display. The image is removed when the display refreshes. Refreshing of the display will look like a quick ‘blink’ and happens every now and then.
If you experience that images remain on the display, simply wait for the display to refresh.
