The device is called Jelly. Unihertz, a start-up based in China, has introduced world’s smallest 4G Android 7.0 Nougat smartphone on Kickstarter. In fact, it is now listed on Kickstarter, Jelly smartphone can be easily fir in your coin pocket as many features there to tickle on. Here are the details.
The Jelly smartphone is manufactured by Shanghai firm, as it touts it to be the “smallest 4G Android smartphone in the world”. Amazingly small but the smartphone is powered with the latest Android 7.0 Nougat features, which is currently at the funding stage on Kickstarter. According to the manufacturer, Jelly 4G Android smartphone is absolutely tiny compared to the phones like the Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7.
Don’t go with the size of the Jelly smartphone, the so-called “world’s smallest 4G phone”, and yes it has a longer battery life than the iPhone 7. Its small 2.45-inch screen fool you, though, because it’s plenty powerful. It measures 92.3 x 43 x 13.3 mm, the phone has all the features of a full-sized Android smartphone and that too, even runs Android 7.0 Nougat with access to most of the Google Play Store apps.
It got a 1.1GHz processor, up to 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage which is further expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card. And the two nano SIM cards included. For cameras, the Jelly has a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera.
By the way, we forgot to make you know that there are two Jelly 4G Android smartphone variants. Dubbed Jelly and Jelly Pro. Both the phones carry the same 1.1 GHz quad-core CPU and the same as aforementioned. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 (2.4GHz/5GHz), Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, G-Sensor, Compass and Gyroscope. The actual matter to speak about the world’s smallest Jelly 4G Android phone would be its power backup.
The Jelly’s most impressive feature, however, is battery life. Unihertz claims up to three days of “average usage” (don’t expect to get for voice calls) and up to seven days of standby time from the phone’s small 950mAh battery unit. In comparison, phones like the iPhone 7 (1.960 mAh) and Galaxy S8 (3,000 mAh) only last 1-1.5 days on a single charge.
Here’s the Jelly next to an iPhone 7 Plus and Coca-Cola can for scale:
Available in white, blue or black. The phone was launched on Kickstarter earlier this month and has already raised more than $180,000 as of this writing. The Kickstarter price is $69 and $75 for the Pro, the planned retail price is $109 at launch.
