Want a really small 4G Android Nougat phone? Meet Jelly


Do you feel nostalgic about the days when smartphones were tiny and had screens measuring under 3 inches? If you do, meet Jelly - a new device that's presented as the smallest 4G smartphone out there.

Measuring 92.3 x 43 x 13.3 mm (3.6 x 1.7 x 0.5 inches), Jelly sports a 2.45-inch screen with 240 x 432 pixels, and, compared to most handsets currently on the market, it looks like a toy. And yet it's a fully fledged smartphone that runs Android 7.0 Nougat and has support for 4G LTE (though it won't work on CDMA networks like Verizon and Sprint).

Jelly is powered by a quad-core 1.1 GHz processor (almost certainly a MediaTek chip), and comes in two variants: one with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory, and a Pro variant with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage space. Both models feature two cameras (8 MP on the back, 2 MP on the front), dual SIM support, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 950 mAh battery.

Manufactured by Unihertz, a China-based company, Jelly can be ordered worldwide via Kickstarter for prices starting at $59. The Kickstarter campaign already reached its funding goal (in about 1 hour), and the phones should start shipping in August.

Being a very cheap smartphone, Jelly won't wow anyone with anything else than its size. But that's still got to be a plus for some customers, right?

I was thinking the same thing especially after having watched the first few episodes of the new season of Prison Break. I was also thinking a smart easily hidden burner phone for... Reasons.

My Gosh! Of all phones to have monstrous bezels, it's the smallest on the market. I believe their may truly be a valuable market for this sized device. But, c'mon morons, do you not realize that the glaring tradeoff to this device is display size? You've got to milk every square mm of space to get a decent useable display on this.

Make this closer to 4", and put a decent processor/ram, and I'm down.
