Palm's tiny Android phone pops up again in another leaked render
Capitalizing on its own brand name, the main selling point of Palm’s first Android smartphone will presumably be its overall size, or perhaps lack thereof, which should allow it to easily fit inside the palm of someone’s hand. Presently, no exact dimensions have been provided but it’s worth noting that a tiny 3.3-inch display will be included. This panel includes a resolution of 1280 x 720p, which translates into a 16:9 aspect ratio, and sports rounded edges. Ultimately, this allows the smartphone to follow the recent design trends, although some pretty thick bezels are featured. Moving over to the rear of the device, Palm's offering sports a pretty simplistic design complete with a vertical camera setup. Unlike most smartphones, though, only one single rear camera is included.
Despite the smartphone’s tiny size, it does pack a bit of a punch internally thanks to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 435. This is coupled with a very respectable 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage but, unfortunately, this may not be expandable. Elsewhere on the spec sheet, Android 8.1 Oreo with a custom overlay will come pre-installed while, on the battery side of things, just 800mAh will be present. However, due to the dimensions, this should hopefully be sufficient for at least a day’s worth of power.
Currently, while it’s unclear when exactly Palm’s first Android smartphone will arrive, the release date should be pretty soon – the device has already been certified by the FCC. When it does happen, those interested should be able to purchase the Palm-branded phone through Verizon.
