Jelly, 'World's Smallest 4G Android Smartphone', Launched With Android 7.0 Nougat
Highlights
  • The Unihertz Jelly has a 2.45-inch display
  • It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat
  • The device supports two Nano-SIM slots

An interesting 'coin pocket-sized' smartphone has made its way on KickStarter looking for crowd funding. The device is called Jelly, and the mini-sized smartphone supports Android 7.0 Nougat, dual-SIM (Nano+Nano), and 4G connectivity. At the time of writing, it had already seen over $125,000 pledged for its $30,000 goal, with 34 days to go.

The Jelly smartphone is manufactured by Shanghai firm Unihertz, and it touts it to be the "smallest 4G Android smartphone in the world." The smartphone fits into your coin pocket, the smallest compartment in your bag, the front pocket of your shirt, or just the palm of your hand. It will be made available in Pearl White, Sky Blue, and Space Black colour options. It will be available in two RAM / Storage bundles.

The Jelly with 1GB RAM/ 8GB Storage is priced at $109 (roughly Rs. 6,900) and the Jelly Pro with 2GB RAM/16GB storage is priced at $125 (roughly Rs. 8,000). On KickStarter, the Jelly and Jelly Pro are priced at $59 (roughly Rs. 3,800) and $75 (roughly Rs. 4,800) respectively. The company is expected to ship the palm-sized Android handset sometime in August - and, it can be a cheap way to enjoy the latest

The Jelly smartphone sports a 2.45-inch (240x432 pixels) TFT LCD display with 201ppi pixel density. It is powered by a 1.1GHz quad-core processor, and is available in two RAM/ storage bundles listed above. The storage can be further expandable via microSD card slot (up to 32GB).

As for the camera, there is an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front sensor. The two SIM-slots support 4G on AT&T and T-Mobile networks in the US. The Jelly smartphone packs a 950mAh battery that is rated to offer three days of battery and seven days on standby. Connectivity options include GPS, Bluetooth v4.0, and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n. Onboard sensors include Gyroscope, G-Sensor, and Compass, and dimensions of the Jelly are at 92.3x43x13.3mm.

As smartphones get larger and bezels get reduced, Unihertz has gone the opposite direction, in a bid to satiate the odd ones. The Jelly doesn't look to compete with the Samsungs and Apples of the world. It looks to be a backup device, or your workout companion that you can use and take to places where you don't want your premium smartphone to go.
