Smartphones have become gigantic with increasingly large screen sizes. But not everyone likes that. Some even say these large phones are “sexist”, when too large to fit comfortably in the hand or into the pockets of many women. So Unihertz’s innovative Kickstarter project could be the solution, with a tiny, tiny 3-inch smartphone that can run Android 10.
Unihertz released the first 4G-enabled micro-smartphone, named Jelly, in 2017. The project was a hit, with more than 10,000 backers and $ 1 million in revenue. Now the company is working on its next project, with a product called Jelly 2, to be released in December.
Although a bit bigger than the original Jelly version, Jelly 2 is still small with a 3-inch screen. For comparison, the iPhone 11 has a 6.1-inch screen.
And it weighs only 110 grams.
It runs Android 10, with access to any Android application that users have on regular phones.
The maker of Unihertz compared Jelly 2 just by the size of a credit card.
Unlike some small phones on the market, Jelly 2 can still do everything a bigger phone can do, like contactless payments.
Compared to the original Jelly (left), the new model (right) has better battery life and resolution.
It has a larger display area, an improved touchscreen and better camera quality.
It also supports MicroSD cards for easy data transfer and a dual SIM card.
Its compatibility with GPS means you can use it to get around.
Jelly 2 is scheduled to ship in December and will cost $ 200.
Unihertz recommends using this phone for times when a large smartphone will cause inconvenience, such as going out at night, exercising or going to the beach.
