We’ve previously covered some entry-level mini Android projectors like Rikomagic R5 or Nebula Capsule, but Amlogic T968 powered Xiaomi WEMAX ONE ultra short throw Android laser projector is a different beast entirely as it sells for $1949 shipped on GearBest. You can lower the price somewhat ($20 discount) with coupon IT$CN33WMX.
