Movi is a high-end smartphone with an HD inbuilt projector?

WMS Movi Smart Cinema- well, the liner is the name of a smartphone that comes with promises as lengthy as its name. The phone promises an inbuilt projector, besides having some top of the line spec-sheet. Movi features the latest Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Another jaw-dropping aspect about the phone is its massive 5000mAh battery. As the price and release date are not known XDA-Developers in one of its reports asks the potential buyers to be cautious since the phone sounds too good to be true.

Remember the recently announced Moto Mod -an extra accessory- that will club with Moto Z to turn the phone into a projector. You can watch a movie, play games or anything beaming on a big screen in front with the help of your Moto Mod attachment. So, how about the Moto Mod kind of stuff built in your phone? WMS's Movi Smart Cinema is just that a smartphone that houses a movie projector inside saving you from the annoyance of carrying an extra attachment with your phone.

On its website, Movi is described as "one of the most feature-rich smartphones in the market with HD pico projector." In addition of the pico projector, the phone boasts of some of the premium specs. The device will feature 5.2 or 5.5-inch 1080p display, 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. A Snapdragon 821 processor will power the handset. A camera setup will include a 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera. The phone will also feature a fingerprint sensor and USB Type-C connector. And battery? That is a biggie, in fact- a 5000mAh battery. The phone will run on Android 7.0 Nougat. If the above-mentioned specs and promise of the projector have wowed you (certainly would have), be cautious. According to XDA- Developers, it might well be all hype- a phone with too many promises minus technical practicalities. And if it makes into a product it could come out with dialed down specs and features than promised.

A phone tacking on so much technology is conceivable but still having room for a projector and a whopping 5000mAh battery is somewhat beyond comprehension. That is not possible without making the phone awfully thick, weighty and queer-designed, quite unlike the one shown in the renders.

What also strikes to mind is the KitKat style icon appearing on the render which otherwise boasts itself to run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat. Also, the description of the phone that it is one of the most feature-rich smartphones in the market with HD Pico projector doesn't help its case, as the phone is yet to develop. The phone is not likely to be available for pre-ordering until about 6 months from now. Amid all doubts, if ever WMS manages to pull off the phone as promised it will be a game-changing moment for the mobile industry which is going through a prolonged stagnation phase.
