Moviphone is trying to convince us that smartphones with a projector are still relevant
Another interesting concept, unfortunately not traction to the public, is the smartphone with an integrated projector. Players like Samsung and Motorola have been offering such solutions for the past few years that have not been commercially successful, but Wireless Mobi Solution believes there is still a market for such a device. It presented at the CES 2018 the Moviphone, a mid-range premium smartphone, with an integrated projector and a ...
Considering the extra production costs for integrating a projector, the $ 599 price is likely to be justified on paper, but in practice the phone does not really impress. We're dealing with a "classic" design with thick edges above and below the display, a 5.5 "diagonal screen with Full HD resolution and a MediaTek (MT6750V octa-core chipset) platform with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage
The 16-megapixel or 16-megapixel cameras do not seem to offer modern features such as a wide camera, zoom camera, or portrait bokeh, and the 4,000 mAh battery is good enough for the phone, but it is unclear how strong it is when used in conjunction with the projector.
And while it comes to the projector, it can display any content appearing on the phone screen in 720p resolution, with a maximum diagonal of the 100 "projection. Positioning at the top of the device does not seem very inspired as control buttons for a landscape movie would not be user-oriented
Unlike other devices presented at CES, Moviphone is a product that can be bought right now. As the delivery can take up to six weeks, Wireless Mobi Solution may approach a cautious strategy that avoids stock surplus, producing exactly how many units are needed to honor orders.
