Jelly is a 2.45″ Smartphone that Runs Android Nougat
One of the world’s smallest, yet still usable smartphone has just been announced on Kickstarter. Jelly is a smartphone with a 2.45″ display size running Android 7.0. Compare that to flagship devices with 6″ or larger screens that only a small group of people can hold one-handed. A modern smartphone in the body of a Nokia 8210 from 1999? Sounds interesting.
Jelly will be available in two versions. The base model will sport 1 GB of RAM and 8 GBs of ROM, while the Pro variant will double these specifications. Both the base and the Pro model share a quad-core 1.1GHz Cortex A53 processor, a 240 x 432 resolution display at 201 PPI, and a 950mAh battery. Unihertz company, the creators behind Jelly, believe that the 950mAh battery should give enough juice to last for at least three days. We’ve become so accustomed to QHD phones with 3,000mAh+ battery capacities that we’re honestly not sure how to judge that claim without running an actual test, but we’re intrigued enough to find out.
The world’s smallest 4G smartphone sports two nano SIM-card slots, a microSD slot that supports cards up to 32 GBs, dual cameras (2 and 8 MP), GPS connectivity, and Bluetooth. The smartphone will run Android Nougat out of the box. You can actually see it in action in the video below posted by the popular Unbox Therapy YouTube channel.
Unihertz’s device will hit the market in August. The base model will cost just $109, while the Pro model is priced at $125. You can save some money by pledging to the Kickstarter project, which has already reached its $30,000 goal in just 57 minutes, which is an impressive result. Perhaps people are venting their frustrations at the ever-growing monster phones of the current year, a trend which does not appear to be subsiding any time soon. Although we do wonder, is the 2.45″ screen enough to become a daily driver?
