[Smartphones] | A phone with a projector! | The Moviphone

Plenty of amazing things were showcased at CES, as every year. Synaptics with their fingerprint sensor under the display, Sony with their three new flagships, Razer with their Project Linda, and more. But among these multi-million dollar players of the mobile world, there was one phone which was designed for an incredibly narrow set of consumers. It is called as the MoviPhone (pronounced 'moo-vee-phone').

Moviphone is a phone with, as you probably guessed, a projector up top. it is a lot similar to the Pico projector mod made by Motorola for their Z phone lineup. Let us take a bit more detailed look at this weirdly specced phone and see if it even has a place in the modern smartphone market of 2018.

The company has been under the geek radar (at least to my eyes) for a while now, and looks like they ha very good reason for it. They've come up with a phone in the mid-tier segment with specs that made my jaw drop.

It was my dad who showed me this phone. I don't know how I did not notice this one myself. Maybe I am just getting lazy since I'm not getting very good income for my efforts lately, but that's beside the point. The phone I am talking about is the new Ulefone Power3.

The new phone has seemingly excessive hardware on paper. I never thought I would say that hardware is ever too much. But check out the specs on this thing:
