ZTE Spro Plus projector. First Look

For ZTE, this is far from the first compact projector, the model was presented just a few months ago at IFA 2015, and now its successor has already appeared.

  • Type: Android projector
  • Projector screen: 500 lm WXGA DLP
  • Distortion correction (horizontal + vertical): 1.4:1 (80” @2.4m)
  • Main screen: 8.4 inches, 2560x1600 pixels, AMOLED
  • Speakers: Harman, 2x4W
  • Platform: Qualcomm Snapdragon 801/625
  • RAM: 3 GB
  • Storage: 32/128 GB, SDXC card slot (cards up to 2 TB supported)
  • Battery: 12100 mAh
  • Dimensions: 228.8 x 150 x 24.8 mm
  • Price: unknown

First, let's deal with positioning. What kind of device was presented in ZTE? At first I wondered if it was very different from the same Lenovo tablets with a built-in projector. How to understand if it is a tablet with a projector or a projector with a built-in tablet? The point, of course, is which of the two functions the gadget performs better. If you look at the Spro Plus, you will see that we have a projector in front of us - a capacious battery, large thickness and weight, a lot of additional connectors, including HDMI, and you can’t even drag it in your hands.

We figured out the type of device, let's go directly to the characteristics. First of all, I would like to draw your attention to the QHD resolution and the AMOLED matrix of the main screen. It looks, of course, impressive, but I did not quite understand why such excessive characteristics for the display, given that most of the time the picture will be viewed not from it, but from the projector screen. No, a good screen is great, I just think that using such a matrix will greatly affect the final cost of the device.

As for the characteristics of the projector itself, I must admit that their description is completely beyond my competence, so let me quote part of the company's press release:

“Vertical and horizontal distortion correction is implemented in the device - the ability to project an image without distortion on any surface. Autofocus keeps the image sharp and clear, and the stylish rounded design of the novelty nicely complements the rest of the advantages. Instead of LED technology, the projector uses a laser that emits a luminous flux of 500 lm: the picture is perfectly visible both in daylight and in a dark room. The new generation of Spro has improved throw ratio - at a distance of 2.4 meters from the device, an image with a diagonal of up to 80 inches is obtained on any surface.

In theory, switching to laser imaging should make using the projector more comfortable in places with artificial lighting, you do not have to constantly cover the windows. By the way, one of the scenarios for using the projector in the company was called presentations at the last moment. That is, when you almost meet at the airport and there are only five to ten minutes to demonstrate your project.

The projector is completely self-contained, the 12100 mAh capacity should be enough for quite a long time, I suspect that with an hour of presentations a day, the charge will last for a whole week.

From a performance point of view, everything is also good, there are two versions: Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 and 801. Theoretically, the power should be enough for most use cases, but I do not know how the new chipset will lead Toyota Yaris 2009 1.5 Automatic Gray in QHD resolution. Another possible option for using the projector in the company is broadcasting games and connecting an external joystick.

Inside - Android 6.0 with a special shell adapted to the large diagonal of the projector. Of the interesting features, it is worth highlighting the presence of two speakers for communication and the ability to voice control the device. True, it seems a little strange to me to say “press pause” in an empty room, but I think that sometimes it’s better than reaching for the remote control.

Conclusion

It seems to me that ZTE pursued the goal of creating a completely autonomous projector, and this is precisely the reason for some redundancy of its characteristics. Judge for yourself: the new laser technology allows you to use it not only in the dark, but also in daylight, the built-in stereo speakers (from JBL, by the way) eliminate the need to connect acoustics, a capacious battery allows you not to carry a heavy charger with you, and good performance guarantees no jamming. By the way, in the older version there is even support for LTE, apparently for urgent reloading of the necessary data. It is not clear only the use of such a good display.

In my opinion, the audience for this projector is people who regularly give presentations in places where there are usually no projectors, it can be various lecturers, sales specialists, organizers of corporate trainings. In general, those who care about getting the device, turn it on and start broadcasting right away. There are only two questions left: are there many such people and are they ready to purchase such a projector?

Estimating the prospects of new items is especially difficult, given the fact that its value on the market in general and in Russia in particular is still unknown, and the start of sales is scheduled for the summer of 2016. By the way, maybe among you, dear readers, there are those who need such a gadget? Tell us in the comments!
