What if your smartphone could help you do more, than just making calls, surfing the net, taking snapshots, and listening to media files? that’s quite a lot it could do already right? well what if it could also help you while you cook and also walks up to you when there’s an incoming call!?, no kidding.

RoBoHon is a robot shaped Android (5.0) smartphone designed by Sharp, it walks, talks, click on photos via voice command and even helps out while you cook. The smartphone is 19.5-cm tall, sports a 2.1 inch display at its rear, it is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, supports 3G/LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi and weighs around 390-g. Despite its large size, the display is a tiny 2-inch QVGA. From this description it is clear this isn’t a device that will fit completely into your pocket.

Using its front camera, RoBoHon can also recognize people’s faces and address them by their name, it can also read out messages to you and remind you of important events. Additionally, RoBoHon can also show you the clicked images via its built-in projector and also project videos for you to watch.

phone you have never seen before… a phone in human shape – Sharp

The rear screen also lets users check emails and other text on a screen at its back. During incoming calls, RoBoHon walks up to you, cool right!? em… actually the price doesn’t really sound cool, RoBoHon, has gone on sale in Japan at a starting price of 198,000 yen ($1,800). Unfortunately the device will only be available in Japan for now, and it will go on sale on May 26.

For now it isn’t certain if the smartphone will be available in other countries because Sharp rarely sells phones outside Japan. Still, lets keep our fingers crossed, we all would like a device that takes the concept of a modern smartphone and also a virtual assistant, all in an adorable little robot body.
