With the launch of smartphones like Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the new iPhone 7 variants are right around the corner, now we have something very unusual to be called a smartphone. A company called Akyumen has just announced to launch a new smartphone with some interesting tricks up its sleeves. Coming in at a display size of about 7-inches, if you still consider this to be a smartphone instead of a tablet, then this might just be a perfect option for you. It’s called the Holofone Phablet.
Apart from having a massive display of that size, it also features a 45-lumen projector. The company claims that it projects up to a 100-inch screen. If this is true, then it is going to be a beast of a phone. Talking about the software, here also users have the flexibility to go with the Android or the Windows 10 OS. Yes, you can select between any one of the OS and enjoy it. The Android operating system version is 6.0 Marshmallow, which is the latest build available for other flagships as well. And when it comes to Windows, you are essentially getting a full blown Windows 10 PC here. No Windows 10 Mobile or the Continuum.
So with a smartphone running latest Android OS and the Windows 10, no one can go wrong here. In terms of hardware specs, we are looking at a quad-core Intel Atom Cherry Trail processor and 4GB RAM along with a 128GB of onboard storage option, which can be expanded via a microSD card. For camera optics, we have a 13-megapiexel rear facing shooter and a 5-megapixel front facing selfie camera. The internals of this device is powered by a 3,500 mAh battery. According to the company, this battery can power the projector for up to 2 hours. It supports 4G LTE connectivity and also features USB Type-C port for syncing.
If you are interested in buying this phablet, then you can head over the company’s official website and pre-order one right now. In terms of pricing, the basic bundle comes for $750 and it goes up to $950 for a set that includes some of the accessories like a wireless speaker, a gaming controller etc. With smartphones like the Moto Z coming with Moto Mods for using a projector, this is a nice touch from Akyumen. Stay tuned for info on this device.
