On November 13th a mobile phone shell called CastAway was crowd-funded in Indiegogo, where it was reported that it could add a second screen to a smartphone. CastAway, which claims to add a second screen to your smartphone, is currently crowdfunding in Indiegogo with a fundraising target of $50,000.
CastAway comes in several different colors and sizes: the 5.8-inch version and the 6.3-inch version. The phone case is divided into two parts, one is a standard case, the user put sits in, the other contains a second screen. The screen will be physically connected to the user’s smartphone via a 360-degree magnetic hinge, and they will communicate via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
The case comes with a battery, SD card slot and even a headphone jack. There’s also a built-in Chrome OS system, and the CastAway team says the device can be charged for up to 10 hours on a single charge. The device is only available in two sizes, but the CastAway team says the phone case should be available for 95 percent of the devices, though there is no evidence to support this claim, except that claiming that the device will work doesn’t mean it will succeed.
If crowdfunding succeeds, The final retail price for the 5.8-inch version is $249 (about $1,747), while the final retail price for the 6.3-inch version is $269 (about 1,888 yuan), and supporters will be able to buy the shell for $189 (about 1,326 yuan) and $199 (about $1,396) respectively. 。 If all goes according to plan, the shell should be shipped in the spring of 2020.
