(Pocket-lint) - Your iPhone or Android smartphone are essentially small computers with small screens. While screen sizes may be increasing in the smartphone world to just under 6-inches, they're still much smaller than their tablet counterparts.

So what if you want to watch a movie or play a game on a tablet-sized screen, but without having to invest some serious cash on a separate tablet? Enter the Superscreen.

The Superscreen is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, although it's already smashed its $50,000 target. It's essentially just a 10.1-inch full HD tablet screen that connects to your smartphone via "high performance hardware communication circuitry", no Wi-Fi or Bluetooth involved here, and mirrors its display exactly.

It can support multi-touch input exactly as you would be on your smartphone and even claims to support the Apple Pencil.

The Superscreen has its own 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras so you can carry out video calls and take photos, and any photos you do take automatically save to your smartphone.

On the bottom you'll find dual stereo speakers and the USB-C charging port - the 6,000mAh battery claims to last around 12 hours - and it has Bluetooth 4.1 built-in so you can send audio to a pair of wireless headphones, for example.

The Superscreen is available to pre-order from Kickstarter now in Midnight Black or Ivory White colour finishes for the early bird price of $99, although delivery isn't expected until December this year.
