XGIMI CC Aurora - portable mini projector

The XGIMI CC Aurora is a mobile all-in-one mini projector with integrated Android Mediacenter and JBL speaker system. All information about the compact projector has been compiled in this article.


Since the XGIMI H1 at the latest, the manufacturer "XGIMI", which specializes in projectors, has also been able to make a name for itself in this country. The focus is on inexpensive "all-in-one" projection solutions, which are equipped with high-quality speaker systems from Harman/Kardon or, in the case of the XGIMI CC, with a speaker system from JBL.

Compact design

The CC Aurora is designed so that you can take it with you almost anywhere. The cube-shaped, metal housing of the mini projector measures just 13.80 x 13.50 x 11.90 cm and weighs just 1.5 kg. A striking design feature is the practical leather handle, which makes the projector easy to transport. Regardless of whether you decide to spontaneously watch sports with friends or want to present your holiday photos at the next garden party, the XGIMI CC projector is flexible and versatile.

You don't have to worry about a player or a loudspeaker with this projection solution either. The CC Aurora is a playback and playback device as well as a loudspeaker in one. 


The projection takes place via a native 720p resolution DLP chip from Texas Instruments in combination with a 1400 lumen RGB-LED light source (350 ANSI lumens). The focus is automatic. A vertical and horizontal keystone correction is available. XGIMI specifies the dynamic contrast ratio as 5000: 1. The projection distance is between 1 and 3 meters with a maximum projection size of 180 inches (projection ratio 1.1: 1). The working volume of the projector is around 30 dB. The service life of the LED light source is given as 30.000 hours. For power supply, the projector is equipped with a 20.000 mAh battery, which enables a running time of up to 8 hours. At the same time, the device can also be connected to an external power source. The power consumption is a maximum of 55 watts.

The integrated media center "GMUI" is a user interface based on Android 5.1.1. A powerful combination of MSTAR 6A638 dual-core processor, a 1GB DDR3 RAM and a 16GB eMMC flash memory enables the playback of a wide range of playback formats. Playback of 4K and 3D content is possible. Films can be transmitted directly to the projector via DLNA, MiraCast or AirPlay Stream via an integrated WiFi module (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac). Thanks to the support of Bluetooth 4.0 BLE, external peripherals can also be connected wirelessly. The connection options include two USB 2.0 sockets, an HDMI socket and a 3.5 mm jack audio output. The user interface is operated using the included remote control, control buttons on the top of the projector housing or via a mobile device (iOS / Android app).

XGIMI CC Aurora Review

In addition to media playback, the Android user interface also allows the subsequent installation of apps. According to XGIMI, the CC Aurora Beamer is able to play DRM protected content. Netflix and HBO can be used this way, for example. The Mali-T720MP2 graphics unit also enables one or the other mobile game.


A powerful stereo sound is generated by two 40 mm loudspeakers and a passive subwoofer. The speaker system is manufactured by JBL. In combination with the Android user interface, the XGIMI CC Aurora can also be used purely for music streaming or as an external Bluetooth speaker.

 The sale of the XGIMI CC Aurora has started. First dealers have already included the compact projector in their product range. We try to get a test copy of the beamer!
