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

17

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?
