The XGIMI Halo+ is a minor update on last year's Halo. The 1080p projector maxes out at 900 ANSI Lumens, supports automatic keystone correction and runs Android TV 10 out of the box. The XGIMI Halo+ retails for £739 in the UK and US$849 in the US.

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.
