Hate them or love them, today’s smartphones seem to be caught up in a neck-by-neck competition on which one has the largest screen, with recent launches well exceeding 6 inches. While this indeed makes for great pixel quality and allows you to even watch movies on your phone if you really want to, it can also get quite annoying. For one, there are very few people in the world that can still safely hold their phones with just one hand.
However, a bold Kickstarter campaign has vouched to put an end to that struggle. Meet Jelly, the world’s smallest smartphone, with its teensy-weensy screen that clocks in at just 2.45 inches. Jelly has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory, and its pro variant doubles on that, with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of memory respectively.
Jelly runs on a quad-core 1.1. GHz Cortex A52 chipset, and has a 950 mAh battery that is said to last for three days. It’s pretty clear that Jelly is a pretty nifty little smartphone, and the best thing about it is that it comes in the size of older models of phones, back from the days when the competition was to prove who can put the smallest phone on the market.
The original variant of Jelly costs just 109 dollars, while Jelly Pro is a bit more expensive at 125 dollars. Still, the price is surprisingly low. No wonder the Kickstarter campaign behind it raised its goal of 30,000 dollars in little under an hour. People can’t wait to have Jelly on their hands! And if you donate to the Kickstarter, you can also save money when you buy the actual phone. Pretty cool, isn’t it? We’re very excited to see when Jelly launches and get to play around with it a bit!
