5 Phones With Weird Features

Whether it is a big screen or more storage or types of specifications, on the whole, it is pretty much the same sort of features that you happen to find in smartphones these days. However, there are some devices which stand out in the crowd with its unique features. Let us take a look.

Changhong H2

Apparently this phone has a “see-through vision”. By using a near-infrared spectrometer, the H2 phone can verify your body fat percentage, the authenticity of your medicine, your BMI, etc. It can perform these tasks by throwing a special light onto the surface of objects and the molecules from these objects send back light in various ways and fetches information to a database cloud where it is analysed and processed. The company has teamed up with Chinese Phone manufacturer Changhong to get the sensors fully incorporated. The sensor can be found at the rear side of the H2 handset and the phone is preloaded with apps that could inspect a lot of different things.

Lenovo Phab 2 Pro

The phone is integrated with Google’s Tango augmented-reality software and a depth-sensing 3D camera system. Google has been working on Tango for years; to measure distances in 3D space, measure out indoor areas, creating a virtual and an augmented reality where virtual objects can fly into the real world. This could be the future where smartphone cameras are headed.

Lenevo Phab 2 Pro is the world’s first available Tango phone. The smartphone comes in three models; all of them with huge 6.4-inch screens. The phone features a wide-angle camera with infrared depth sensing and motion tracking. With a Quad HD-resolution display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor and 4GB of RAM, the new Tango device becomes a unique choice.

Motorola Moto Z series

The assortment of magnetic pins at the back makes the Motorola Moto Z series unique. With that as an option, you can snap on different modular accessories like a portable speaker or a power pack, to enhance the phone’s functions. Your phone will no longer be limited to customisation. You can add up say a meatier battery to breathe really long or turn it into a video projector for an unplanned movie night with friends. Although it sounds simple, buying these separate mods could burn a hole in your pocket. But if you are a gizmo freak, Motorola’s whole new magnetic take on will lure you for sure. Quirky features aside, the Moto Z is a powerful device running on Android 6.0.1 with 5.50-inch display, 64GB of storage, 4GB RAM powered by 1.8GHz quad-core.

Cat S60

The smartphone is IP68 certified and can easily survive a 6 feet drop under water or a fall onto the concrete, making it the best waterproof phone in the current market. Apart from its tough exterior, it has a Flir thermal imaging camera. It is placed above the phone’s 13MP primary camera and allows owners to visualize the temperature of objects. It takes 10-15 seconds for the Flir camera app to launch on S60. The app offers nine filters which help make certain temperatures more visible than others. With a 4.7 inch display, Cat S60 settles at Qualcomm MSM8952 Snapdragon 617, 3GB RAM, 32GB of storage and runs on Android 6.0.
