Another projector phone will soon be available in India, this time from iBall. iBall has announced iBall Andi 4a Projector phone, which has been listed on their India website with a price tag of 18,999. Earlier we have seen other Projector phones like Samsung Galaxy Beam and Spice Popkorn M9000, although this phone is the first one with 35 Lumens projector with VGA projection up to 8 feet. You can have VGA projections up to 120 Inch Wide with a contrast ratio of 1200:1.
This phone comes with a 4 Inch WVGA display of 800 x 480 Pixels amounting to a pixel density of 233 Pixels per inches which is not much considering the price range, especially when many manufactures are providing HD and Full HD display around the range of 15 thousand.
This phone is powered by 1 GHz Dual Core processor with Cortex A9 ARM architecture. Dual core processor at this price range doesn’t feels quite right. The RAM capacity of 512 MB is far below average and is in range with what budget androids are offering these days. Internal memory is 4 GB which can be increased to 32 GB using microSD card.
The 8 MP primary camera comes with LED Flash for low light photography and is a pretty standard one. A front facing camera is also present for video calling. On the software front this phone comes with Android 4.1 jelly bean Operating system
The battery capacity is also pretty less at 1500 mAh and at par with most budget Android devices priced around 5,000 INR. You can’t expect to enjoy your 35 Lumens projector for a considerable time on this one. Connectivity features include 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS / aGPS and Bluetooth.
iBall is definitely counting on its 35 Lumens projector to sell this device. The specifications don’t match the price tag if you are expecting good performance. A bigger Battery and a 1 GB RAM would have made this phone far more attractive. This phone has been priced at 18,999 and comes with a Free Tripod.
