There’s no shortage of good smartphones in the market, but there is definitely a need for more unique devices. This is why our heads always turn when we see gadgets like the Akyumen Holofone Phablet (yes… they literally put the word “phablet” in the name). But that moniker is about the only bad thing this device seems to have.
This phone is a one-of-a-kind in multiple ways, and it happens to be pretty powerful. For starters, it is bigger than even the biggest smartphones at 7 inches. It’s pretty much a tablet with cellphone capabilities. But that is only part of what makes this phone odd.
This device can dual-boot both Android and Windows 10. No, not the mobile or simplified versions of Windows 10; full-on Windows 10. And you definitely don’t want to be using Windows 10 on 7-inch screen, so the manufacturer has added a 35-lumen, 720p pico projector that can display at up to 100 inches.
Other specs include the following:
- Windows 10 and Android Lollipop
- 7-inch 1080p display
- 720p pico projector
- Intel Cherry Trail 8300 processor
- 4 GB of RAM
- 128 GB of internal storage (upgradable)
- 13 MP rear-facing camera
- 5 MP front-facing camera
- 2910 mAh battery
Needless to say this idea is pretty crazy, but we can see it working great if well implemented. Making a device do too much can sometimes translate to a bad experience all around. But if done right, this could be an amazing tool for the road warrior.
