Microvision installed in another smartphone.

So, Microvision can be found in this phone.... 

REDMOND, Wash.--()--MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:MVIS), a leader in innovative ultra-miniature projection display and sensing technology, today announced that its PicoP® scanning engine for projected display is part of a new VOGA V flagship smartphone just announced at Mobile World Congress Shanghai by Ragentek.

Ragentek, a Chinese-based smartphone manufacturer and solution company with top selling phones in China, India, Brazil and other countries, placed a $6.7 million order with MicroVision in March 2017 for a customized display engine, PSE-0403-103, to be embedded in its VOGA V smartphone. Ragentek plans to begin pre-orders for the phone immediately with delivery starting in July. To support Ragentek’s schedule, MicroVision began shipping engines at the end of June and will begin volume shipments in July.
“Ragentek has done an amazing job designing the VOGA V smartphone. It is a sleek, high performance product that addresses the consumer’s desire for slim, compact smartphones while at the same time maximizing functionality for watching video with a large, projected image,” said Alexander Tokman, President and Chief Executive Officer of MicroVision. “As soon as we began talks with the Ragentek team it was clear that they had a vision for the type of product they wanted to bring to market and a plan for getting there. We are extremely pleased they chose to partner with us and embed our PicoP scanning engine in the VOGA V.”
“When we came to MicroVision with our ideas for this product, their ability to work their engine design around our product design was a key factor in getting this product to market quickly. The mobile-first features of PicoP scanning technology such as always-in-focus images, lower power consumption and small module size were essential for us to maintain our phone design and performance standards while still extending the functionality to include high definition projected large screen images,” said Jiaming Le, Chief Executive Officer of Ragentek. “Our target customers want to have it all in a smartphone and today that means a device that is optimized for video viewing. With this engine from MicroVision, we are excited to offer a cutting-edge solution that will give our customers an experience beyond what they might expect from simply increasing the built-in screen a few centimeters.”
For its smartphone design, Ragentek required an electronics board layout that varied from the standard form of MicroVision’s PSE-0403-101 display engine. MicroVision was able to quickly design an engine that met the requirements and could be manufactured by MicroVision’s supply chain partner. This engine, PSE-0403-103, uses the same MEMS and ASICS1components as the standard MicroVision PSE-0403-101 engine and has the same performance characteristics, including an always-in-focus, high definition image from a small, low power engine. The flexibility to meet Ragentek’s specific design requirements together with the performance that is optimized for a mobile product were key factors for MicroVision winning this business.
At least where I am the Youku video doesn't work so well. If someone could give me a heads up if they find this on Youtube, or actually has a file for the video that would be appreciated.
