Trinity is 5-inch Android Smartphone That Doubles As A Full Windows PC

by Habeeb Onawole 6

If someone were to do a search on crowdfunding platforms, you are sure to come across some pretty interesting discoveries.An example is this smartphone called Trinity that runs Android but also functions as a full Windows PC. This is different from a dual-boot device that has both Android and Windows installed. It has separate hardware for both operating systems and can run Windows and Android simultaneously even letting you switch between both, without shutting one down.


Trinity is being developed by Shane Lewis and now he wants you to crowdfund his idea so he can start shipping by the end of the year. The specs for the device are not mind-blowing since Lewis is working with old components. It will run Windows 10 and unspecified version of Android. It is also really thick at 17.5mm with a possibility of reaching 19mm when finished.

Trinity Price

The specs above are for the entry model Trinty One and will set you back $699. For $869, you get the Trinity Turbo with a Pentium N3710 processor, 4GB RAM & 128GB storage. If you raise it to $959, you get the Trinity Ultimate with the same Pentium N3710 processor but the RAM and storage gets boosted to 8GB and 256GB. Storage for android is also raised to a 64GB microSD card.

If Shane Lewis meets his $767,000 goal on Indiegogo, he plans to begin shipping in December.

    too big and ugly to be a phone
    not powerful enough to be a PC

      Most engineers and average people use mid grade laptops for work or play. It’s no gaming monster for sure.

      Like anything else it would continue to mature, thinner, faster and better battery life.

        Let’s imagine we’re buying hardware for a company and we’re facing 2 choices :

        A/ We buy a $700 2in1 phone/PC & a dock with screen + keyboard + mouse
        Cost : $700 + $200/$300 = $900/$1000

        B/ We buy a $300 phone & a $500 laptop
        Cost : $800

        Considering you can’t work on a phone because the screen is too small, and ppl will have to dock it to work properly, we loose the mobility advantage of a laptop. Plus there is no real saving, so… let’s face it : 2in1 a shitty idea and you’ll have to choose the phone + laptop combo.

    I’m quite sure that if this campaign reaches the necessary funding, it will be delivered to its customers in the same way the Saygus V Squared was, meaning, you can wave goodbye to your hard earned cash…
