PC Watch reveals a makeshift new laptop design that turns any smartphone into a working laptop. HTL WitH features a 13.3 inch display and a 5000mAh battery. Compatible with Android and iPhone smartphones with display output via a respectable charging port.
WithH features a 13.3 inch IPS LCD that supports 1080P resolution. The clamshell measures 311x210x14.9mm and weighs 2.6 lbs. The device has a very respectable 5000mAh battery, which we believe can power the device and charge your smartphone at the same time. In any case, the laptop has a reported 6 hours of uptime.
Port selection includes two dedicated USB ports for phone input (one for Android and one for iPhone), two HDMI ports (each providing input or output capability), a 3.6mm headphone jack, and a card reader . Finally, there’s one USB port for charging your laptop and another USB port that looks like a standard port that doesn’t do anything special.
Sadly, the laptop device isn’t available in the US and appears to be available only from Amazon’s Japanese web page, priced at ¥61,380, or $449.
This is not the first time we have seen such a device. Never hit the market, but Razer’s Project Linda (opens in new tab) In 2018, it was an early example of laptops with smartphones, but with a strong focus on gaming. This concept his device was unique in that it allowed Razer smartphones to be docked directly where the touchpad would be and used as a touchpad while attached.
The laptop has a lot of other great features too, some unique gaming features that allow keyboard and mouse input to be used on the phone, and 200 GB of internal storage that’s available when the phone is plugged in. was equipped with at the concept stage.
Another device on the market is the Nexdock laptop powered by a Samsung smartphone via Samsung’s Dex software. The device is available for purchase now and works with all his Dex-enabled phones from the S8 onwards.
But what makes WitH great is its wide range of support, including Android and iPhone devices. This is what the previous two examples lack, which are trapped in the Razer or Samsung ecosystems.
