ZTE unveils an Android-powered 1080p hybrid projector at CES 2014


ZTE, one of the biggest Chinese smartphone manufacturers, has just unveiled a hybrid device, called Projector Hotspot. It is a Full HD projector that doubles as a LTE hotspot, which can provide 4G access for up to 8 different clients simultaneously. 

The DLP projector is capable of displaying video and images up to 120 inches big (3 meters) and can output as much as 100 lumens of brightness with the contrast ratio of 1000:1. It packs HDMI-in (which supports up to 1080p input) and USB-A slots, a headset jack and a dedicated audio output. 

ZTE's hybrid device, which is powered by Android 4.2, comes with a 4-inch LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 480x800 pixels on board, which results in the relatively low pixel density of 233 ppi. Other devices can connect to ZTE's cross-bred gadget via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. Projector Hotspot, which has dimensions of 4.7 x 4.7 x 1.1 inches and tips the scales at 14 oz, is powered by a 5000 mAh battery.


ZTE is planning on releasing the Projector Hotspot in the USA this year, yet nothing is known about the price of the device. There is no clue what mobile carriers will launch it. Projector Hotspot is currently on display at ZTE's booth at CES 2014.

Couple of technicals. Is it slim-port or mhl-ready or in anyway capable of doubling the mobile screen via the mobile's HDMI output technology? Does it do 1080p/60i? Does it do proper image quality? Otherwise it's kinda pointless.

So does the projector show its own screen or the device connected to it?

It shows its own screen - you can select what to project either from the web or from the projector's own memory.
