About 2 years ago, at CES we got introduced to project scio, a handheld spectrometer. Now that same company has given to us the Changhong H2 - the world's first spectrum smart phone.
The design is your average modern day phone with metallic build and plastic casing, nothing special. However, the highlight is the spectrum function. You simply open the designated app, put the phone close to the object that you want to scan and press a big button. The phone analyses the object and compares it to an online database. Voila, you then get a breakdown of your object.
The applications of this are still limited as support is still low. But features on demonstration include showing how much sugar is in a piece of fruit, and showing how much fat is your body. It can also differentiate fake medication from the original ones, though response to it is still understandably growing.
The phone runs Android if you still want to. It launched in China in June 2017 for around 430 dollars. The original scio scanner is selling for 299 and can connect with any device that you own.
