Nowadays, the trending technology, especially in mobile phones, is the bigger the better. Everyone wants that massive screen real estate for better visual impact. However, not everything that is great comes in big packages. And this is where the Jelly comes in. The world’s smallest Android 4G LTE phone.
The device is actually a Kickstarter campaign launched by UniHertz early this month. Apart from being a really tiny smartphone, it does have all the things one will need for a mobile device, including but not limited to 4G LTE.
For starters, the Jelly has a minuscule 2.45-inch TFT LCD screen. The phone runs on a quad-core ARM processor clocked at 1.1GHz. This chip is paired with 2GB of RAM which is ample for a phone this size. It comes in two storage variants. The standard Jelly is equipped with an 8GB flash storage while the Jelly Pro packs a 16GB storage. If you feel the storage is too small, you can always slip in a 32GN microSD card. And as mentioned, Jelly runs on Android 7.0 Nougat, which is pretty neat to say the least.
Other features of the phone include an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera. Would-be backers or buyers should not be surprised at all but the front-facing camera sensor has a meagre 2-megapixel resolution. However, it does have other features common with bigger-seized smartphones like gyroscope, GPS, and above all, an extra SIM card slot.
With all these somewhat impressive specs, the Jelly still has a trick up its sleeve. While most smartphones last only about a day of continuous use, the Jelly tops that by a mile. The phone is capable of running for three full days on a single charge. Furthermore, the 7-day standby time is pretty impressive as well.
At the moment, the Jelly is still in campaign mode. For those who are interested, the phone is sold for backers for only $59 on the standard model and $75 on the pro model. According to the product page, the Jelly will ship sometime in August this year.
