The XGIMI Halo+ is a compact projector with Android TV 10 built-in
XGIMI has expanded its Halo series of compact projectors. Last year, the company unveiled the Halo, which it still sells for £689 or US$799. As far as we can tell, XGIMI has made three changes from the Halo to the Halo+, and one of those is software-related.
According to the company, the Halo+ peaks at 900 ANSI Lumens, 100 ANSI Lumens brighter than its predecessor's peak luminosity. Both models have a 0.33-inch DMD display chip though, along with a 1.2:1 throw ratio and a 1,920 x 1080-pixel maximum output.
The Halo+ also supports automatic keystone correction, a feature lacking in the Halo. Additionally, the projector runs Android TV 10, up from Android TV 9.0 in last year's model. XGIMI has not revealed what SoC powers the Halo+, but the 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage from the Halo has returned. Hence, we would not be surprised if XGIMI had re-used the Amlogic T950X2, too.
Like its predecessor, the Halo+ measures 113.5 x 145 x 171.5 mm and contains a 59 Whr battery. There are also dual 5 W speakers on board, with a 3.5 mm headphone jack, HDMI 2.0, USB 2.0 Type-A and DC IN serving as ports. Supposedly, the Halo+ supports a gaming mode that reduces image latency to 26.5 milliseconds, which is available at up to 200-inches.
The XGMI Halo+ costs £739 in the UK and US$849 in the US, making it £50/US$50 more expensive than its predecessor. Currently, the Halo+ is only available to order from XGIMI's website.
