Every once in a while, we see manufacturers launch phones with one or more unusual feature. There are phones with thermal imaging cameras (Caterpillar S60) and others with a near infrared spectrometer (Changhong H2). One other feature that we have seen in a phone is a built-in projector and a prime example is the Samsung Galaxy Beam. A new phone called the Moviphone, showcased at CES 2018, joins the short list of phones with a built-in projector.


The Moviphone is made by American company Wireless Mobi Solutions. Its selling point is its built-in projector with a projection size of up to 100-inches at a 720p resolution. It does this with the aid of a 50 lumens projection module located at the top of the device.

In terms of specs, the Moviphone has a 5.5” display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. It is powered by MediaTek’s MT6750V processor and comes in 3GB + 32GB ROM and 4GB + 64GB variants. It also supports storage expansion (128GB max).

It packs a 13MP rear camera housed in a circle like the Moto series. Beneath the camera is a fingerprint scanner. There is also an 8MP camera for selfies.

The Moviphone has dual SIM support (micro+nano/microSD) and packs a 4000mAh battery. The company says the battery should last up to 4 hours with the projector turned on. The Moviphone runs Android Nougat.

With respect to design and build, the Moviphone has a metal body with a black coat. There is a 2.5D glass in front and the phone uses on-screen buttons. Physical buttons are on the right and SIM tray is on the left.

Considering it has a built-in projector, the phone is a bit thick. The dimensions on the site says it measures 153.06 x 75.64 x 10.28 mm and weighs about 200g.

The Moviphone is priced at $599 and can be ordered on the official website. It comes unlocked and supports all wireless carriers in the US.
