TAKEE 1 it’s a smartphone that was officially presented last year, but the manufacturer company had to delay it’s release because the technology used to create it is very complex. Also, the manufacturer claims that TAKEE 1 is the first holographic smartphone.
It has a 3D display and together with an adapter that uses four cameras can show photos, videos and 3D games that give you the floating sensation. The four cameras used by the phone can track eye movements through its proprietary eye-tracking technology and can feed the information into a 3D engine that will personalize the user experience. The phone also supports Air Touch, which is quite similar to what Samsung did to their last few Note devices. Air Touch can be used within the user interface to interact with apps, but it can also be used with games, movies and other media, so you can basically use the phone without touching the screen. Even though we can’t see real holograms that pop out of the phone, it’s as accurate as it gets.
When it comes to hardware, the TAKEE 1 has some nice features. It uses a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 display that measures 5.5 inches and has a FullHD resolution (1920×1080 pixels). The phone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6592 Turbo processor which runs at 2.0 GHz and a Mali-450 MP4 GPU. It also come with 2 GB of ram and 32 GB of internal storage. The rear camera is a 13 MP Sony Exmor IMX135 sensor complete with autofocus, LED flash, motion tracking and eye tracking among others. The same features apply to the 5 MP front camera, save for the LED flash. The cameras are pretty fine, and the added motion and depth tracking do make for some neat photos and videos, but their main purpose is still 3D experience. One downfall is that the phone is running on Android 4.2.2.
It also has a 2500 mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0, 2 SIM card slots and a microSD card slot to the mix, and even TAKEE 1 is a mid-range smartphone rather than a flagship, it has some interesting features and for the price of $130 it’s worth a try.
