Five years ago, Motorola introduced us to the Atrix. Through various docking stations, the smartphone could be “transformed” into a laptop or even a desktop. Sort of. It was a fun idea in concept, but not terribly practical in reality. What if you could have an Android smartphone that also ran full-blown Windows 10? With an integrated projector to boot? That’s the mobile dream being put forth with the Akyumen Holofone, a 7-inch phablet that wants to be all things to all people.

We’ve seen an Android-powered pico projector or two before and there are even a small handful of phones with built-in projectors, but nothing quite like this. The Akyumen Holofone is hardly going to be the smallest, thinnest or most compact smartphone, but it could be the most powerful. In addition to Android 5.x Lollipop (why so old?), it can dual boot into real Windows 10. That’s not the mobile version on Microsoft’s smartphones. This is real deal Windows 10.

As far as specs, the Holofone features a 7-inch 1080p display, Intel Atom (Cherry Trail) chip, 4GB of RAM, 128GB internal storage, expandable memory card slot, 13Mp rear camera, 5MP front camera, USB-C, and 4G LTE. Oh and then there’s the 35-lumen projector good for images up to 100 inches across the diagonal. The 3500mAh battery is said to be good for two hours of continuous use of the projector, almost enough to handle most Hollywood blockbusters.

They’re accepting pre-orders now on the Akyumen website. The $750 basic package throws in a Sabertooth pen, ear buds, device stand and screen protector. Alternatively, you can step up to packages with more accessories for $850 or $950. Shipments are expected to commence on September 1.
