Lenovo has just announced their own projector. It appears that projectors are making a comeback. After ZTE has announced a couple of them now, Lenovo has joined in on the fun. This is their Pocket Projector that will add a new dimension to watching and sharing content. All you need to do is attach the projector to a compatible Android device. Which is defined as a Miracast enabled device running Android 4.3 or higher. You can then project photos and really anything onto a wall at about 110-inches. Of course, it’ll need to be in low-light conditions. It has a 50-lumen high contrast optical engine, which allows the projector to display a colorful, bright and vivid images and video.
According to Lenovo this Pocket Projector also delivers some pretty decent sound with it’s dual speakers. They also tout that it takes just a few seconds to project content from a smartphone wirelessly via DLNA or Miracast. If you are going wireless, Lenovo states that the battery is good enough to project a full length movie on a single charge.
