The device would need to have two separate radios to be able to do this.

  • Radio one for the wifi client
  • Radio two for the wifi accesspoint

As phones cannot be upgraded with additional wifi cards, this is not possible.

(Technically it would be possible if the device had a USB-OTG capable USB port, but yours doesn't have this, and secondly the standard firmwares don't support such a setup either)
