The smartphone world is today eagerly waiting to see what the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will look like. The story is no different when it comes to Apple, with the company poised to debut the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus during the month of September.
While this is happening, it seems both Samsung and Apple will be dealt a blow by the new Akyumen-made Holofone Phablet. This device is the latest entry into the competitive smartphone world and it comes in full of style and flair. For the most tech-savvy users, not so many would hesitate to have a go at this phablet.
The Holofone Phablet easily gets the “Phablet” name tag thanks to its monstrous 7-inch 1080p display screen, a feature that can easily quality the handset as a tablet (although it’s considered a phone). The back of the huge phone has a capable 13MP snapper while the packs a decent 5MP selfie camera. Furthermore, Akyumen went for a decent 128GB of upgradable onboard storage, a quad-core Intel Cherry Trail z8300 SoC, and a 4GB RAM, which should leave Holofone buyers satisfied.
If you think this specs sheet is impressive, well, there’s more impressive stuff on this Holofone Phablet. In fact, the handset has two distinct features that will set it apart from the rest of the smartphone family, be it Android or iOS. It gets even worse for the likes of Samsung, LG, Apple and a host of other smartphone OEMs as the Holofone Phablet basically puts together the power of a real PC and a smartphone, something none of these companies has so far managed to do with the current gadgets.
For starters, the Holofone Phablet will be powered by two operating systems – a full-blown Windows 10 OS for PCs (not Windows 10 Continuum or Windows 10 Mobile) as well as the slightly older Android Lollipop. It doesn’t stop there as the phone further comes with an inbuilt 35-lumen projector, which according to Akyumen, can project onto a 100-inch display screen. In short, you will no longer need to have the likes of Apple TV, Google Cast or other related technologies in order to cast.
Since it is a phone, the Holofone comes with full support for GSM and 4G LTE connectivity. However, you get a disappointingly small battery capacity of just 2910mAh.
Pre-orders of the Holofone Phablet, which should be here as from September 1, 2016, are already underway, with the starting price being $750. You also get a $950 price tag that includes a bunch of accessories, among them a game controller, Bluetooth speaker, and a battery stand.
