Lesser known Chinese phone maker is set to launch a phone with built-in molecular scanner!
CES allows the big guns to show off their newest smartphones, but it also gives the lesser known brands a time to shine alongside those household names, and perfect example of this is here with the Changhong H2.
For those of us who have lived in China Changhong IS a household name, but even there the company is best known for domestic appliances and especially their TVs, but the past few years has seen the company make more phone for interesting niche markets.
The ChangHong H2 is one very interesting phone! With a release date of around June this year, this is the first ever smartphone to have a built-in molecular scanner! Basically this is the first ever smartphone with Tricorder features!
For those of you who are not familiar with Star Trek what this means is that the H2 can be used to scanner materials to test what properties they have, how fresh they are and even the BMI of a person.
What this means is customers can scan fruit, vegetables or meat while shopping to see which is the most fresh. For doctors, it would allow the easy testing of certain medicines! This is very exciting stuff!
Changhong are set to launch the H2 in China at just under $500, at this time we’re not sure on the full specs but will bring updates once we know!
