There are in total three cooling fans not only for the projector’s body but also to maintain its processor chip and lamp as cool as possible.

In the case of the U1 laser projector, at present, we can only say that the JMGO has planned something good like its former counterparts. It can help the projector device to control its heat dissipation.

Projector’s Design,

2) If we talk about the design of WEMAX ONE hardware, then the front side of the projector has possessed a grid having speakers inside the same. There are total three speakers provided inside the projector among them two are of low frequency, and one is of high-frequency output.

At the right side, there is a ventilation grill for heat dissipation. Nothing is there on the top of the projector. At the back, the projector consists of interface ports including a USB 2.0 port, two HDMI 2.0 ports.

It also possesses an ARC audio output port (to connect 7.1 channel surround audio speakers), an Ethernet port, and two SPDIF ports. As per the teaser look of the JMGO U1 projector, it seems like the product is entirely based on stylish design.

The top and bottom part of the projector is in complete black color. The middle portion of the projector device is somewhat silvery with some grey finish in between. At the front part of the projector, there is only a brand logo.

On the sides of U1, it looks like there is the presence of either speaker grills. There is some possibility of heat dissipation vents on both sides and at the back. At the back of the projector, we can expect the commonly required interface ports.

It can be operated via Bluetooth connectivity. In U1 the actual look of how the projector’s remote controller will be going to be is not clear, but we can expect a comfortable piece in our hand.
