Have you ever wanted to turn your Android smartphone into a full-fledged laptop? Well, now you can, thanks to the Mirabook, an extension that promises to do just that.
The Mirabook Turns Your Smartphone Into A Full-Fledged Laptop
The Mirabook is an ultra-lightweight, full-fledged laptop with an aluminum finishing. Mirabook features a 13.3-inch HD display, 1080p screen resolution, and additional storage space. The Mirabook also comes with a USB-C port for quick charging, an HDMI output, SD card slot, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Miraxes, the startup behind Mirabook, said its greatest asset is the battery, as "it can be used continuously for up to 24 hours while recharging your smartphone."
So how does Mirabook work? Users should simply connect their Android or Windows smartphone to the USB-C port, and it shows up on the 13-inch HD display with a keyboard and trackpad. Users can do everything from play video games, stream movies, or do work.
"Everyone has the Smartpart of the Mirabook in their pocket. Our ambition is to truly revolutionize the mainstream computer market considering that the Smartphone is the only computer that we need now," said Yanis Anteur, CEO of Miraxes.
Android Devices Compatible With Mirabook Laptop
The Mirabook laptop supports the Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus, and the upcoming flagship Galaxy S9. In addition to Huawei Mate 10 Pro, the Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL, HP Elite X3, Acer Liquid Jade, and the Alcatel Idol Pro 4 are all using the technology.
In addition, the Mirabook is compatible with operating systems, such as DeX and Continuum, Leena OS, Maru OS, Oxi OS, and Remix Singularity. For now, the Mirabook works with Android, Ubuntu, and Windows phones, though iOS devices aren't supported yet.
Devices such as the Raspberry Pi or a computer stick can also connect to the USB and work as a full-fledged laptop while working on a much bigger display.
The Mirabook Is Shipping In May To Indiegogo Backers
Miraxes launched an Indiegogo campaign back in 2017. The company exceeded its original $50,000 goal by $79,618, making a total of $129,618. During CES 2018, CEO Anteur said the company is shipping the Mirabook to Indiegogo backers in May, and the Mirabook extension will cost $299.00.
This isn't the first company to turn smartphones into a full-fledged laptop. We've seen ClamBook by ClamCase, Motorola's Lapdock, and Sentio's Superbook over the years, but nothing seems to stick around for long.
