Smartphones are beginning to get boring, all of them follow a similar design language and most of them don shave any unique or interesting features.
Aside from the phone from Akyumen, who unveiled a device called the Holofone Phablet this week. It not only intrigued us because of its name but also because of its features.
That said it is very large device, featuring a massive 7-inch display with a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution and a beefy build, the Holofone is definitely going to make you look weird when in calls.
But to a lot of people that won’t matter because this is a media consumption device at its core. not only does it have that humongous display, but it also features a 35-lumen projector that is capable of projecting media at up to 100 inches on the diagonal.
Akyumen say that this projected image is capable of projecting at least 720p resolution, so it’s not quite the best, but ts definitely good enough.
Inside the Holofone is also a bit if a beast, it’s capable of booting into either Android 5.0 Lollipop or Windows 10, and yes that is the desktop version. To power it the Phablet has a quad-core Intel Atom Cherry Trail processor, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.
You can also expand the storage via the MicroSD card slot.
On top of that, it has a 5-megapixel sensor around the front, a 13-megapixel camera around the back, a 3,500mAh battery inside and both 4G LTE connectivity and USB Type-C support.
You can pick up the Holofine Phablet then you can order it through Akyumen’s website. It is priced from $600 for the education package and up to $950 for the Advancdd Packae which includes a few accessories, both of which will begin shipping to customers from November 5th.
