In our books, ZTE’s Projector Hotspot was one of the quirkiest devices to be announced so far at CES. ZTE didn’t offer many details about the device when it announced it last week. Thankfully, we now know what it is made of and we would be lying if we told you we are not secretly lusting for it.

While the name Projector Hotspot might be as unimaginative as it can get, the product itself is nothing short of sheer innovation. It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and comes with a 4-inch WVGA display. The projector is good enough to project up to 120-inch frames on a surface. So in case your stuff is already in the cloud, you could beam it directly from the Projector Hotspot itself. Otherwise, you can connect it with other devices over HDMI, USB, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and use the projector. Also Read - Samsung and LG confirm presence at in-person CES 2022
On the hotspot side of things, it can connect up to eight devices simultaneously and supports 802.11 b/g/n. It comes with LTE connectivity and we would like to believe the bands would depend on individual markets. Under the hood is a 5,000mAh battery. There is no word on the processor and we don’t even know whether the battery would last long enough to project a movie. There is no word on the pricing and availability either but we are already emptying our pockets and throwing money at our screens.
