A familiar design is the norm in the smartphone industry, no matter which phone you browse. Akyumen is here to shake things up, however, with its Holofone Phablet, a beast of a device that packs more than a few surprises.
The exterior, the Holofone features a massive 7-inch, 1,920 x 1,080 resolution display. Kind of hilarious looking when making a call I bet. Visually though should be suffice for video playback. More space requested, the Holofone includes a 35-lumen projector that can project images up to 100 inches on the diagonal in “high resolution,” according to the manufacturer.
Moreover it has the ability to boot into either the aging Android 5.0 Lollipop or Windows 10. Unfortunately, there is no word whether the Holofone will be upgraded to either Marshmallow or the upcoming Nougat, but at least it will not have to worry about running Continuum from Windows 10 Mobile, since it runs Microsoft’s desktop operating system.
Hardware wise, it carries a quad-core Intel Atom Cherry Trail processor, 4GB RAM, with the 128GB of onboard storage expandable through the MicroSD card slot. A standard 5-megapixel sensor is found around front, while the 13MP main camera features what Akyumen calls “super slow motion technology.” Meanwhile, the 3,500mAh battery promises to provide two hours of continuous projector use.
in conclusion the Holofone features 4G LTE connectivity and USB Type-C support. The phablet is sold only in bundles through Akyumen’s website. Bundles starting at $600 for the Education Package and go all the way up to $950 for the Advanced Package, which includes everything from a Bluetooth speaker to a game controller.
Available bundles will ship out to customers beginning on November 5.
