jelly, world's smallest 4G smartphone, pops perfectly in your pocket
as smartphones become more and more high-tech, the majority of models are gaining inches in a quest to become the ultimate all-purpose object. gone are the days of slotting your mobile snugly into your back pocket—or at least they were, before jelly arrived. developed by shanghai-based mobile phone innovators unihertz, the 3.6 by 1.7 inch device takes the title of world’s smallest 4G smartphone, packing all the functionality of its rapidly-growing competitors into a minute, manageable form.
the mini-smartphone sets out to be the perfect solution when a full feature spec is required without the bulk and expense of a flagship smartphone. yet a smaller size does not mean compromise—jelly packs a 2.45” TFT LCD display, runs android 7.0 nougat within its tiny frame, and is even fully compatible with the ultra-fast 4G network. powered by a 1.1 GHz processor, the phone comes in three different color ways, with a memory choice of either 1GB or 8GB.
jelly’s smooth, modern aesthetic has been ergonomically designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand. although small in size, a single charge can power the teeny tiny device for around three days of working time, or a whole week on standby. unihertz have even designed jelly to be compatible with nano SIM cards, making it easy to switch from your expensive smartphone to jelly for travel or sport.
the model packs both front and rear facing cameras, and can run virtually any app from the google play store. weighing just 60.4 grams, jelly is certainly the colorful antidote to cumbersome smartphones. its small size and low cost make the device perfect for situations like travel, exercise, or even for kids. jelly’s price is as appealing as its aesthetic, with the mini-smartphone set to go on sale for around 59 dollars.
