Sick of huge phones? Here’s one that’s quite the opposite.
Jelly, the so-called “world’s smallest 4G phone” according to Shanghai-based Unihertz, is absolutely tiny compared to phones like the Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7. Don’t let its small 2.45-inch screen fool you, though, because it’s plenty powerful.
Available in white, blue or black, the phone has all the features of a full-sized Android smartphone and even runs Android 7.0 Nougat with access to most of the Google Play Store apps.
It’s got a 1.1 GHz processor, up to 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card), and two nano SIM cards. For cameras, the Jelly has a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera. Read more…
