The smartphone is manufactured by Unihertz and the company claims that Jelly is the smallest 4G Android Smartphone in the world. It will come in two RAM/storage options and is available in Pearl White, Sky Blue, and Space Black finishes.
The Jelly comes with a 2.45 inch TFT LCD display with a resolution of 201 pixels per inch. It is powered by 1.1 GHz quad core processor and is available in two configurations.
The Jelly smartphone with 1GB RAM and 8GB Internal storage variant is priced at $100(approx. Rs.7800), whereas the 2GB/16GB model is priced at $125(approx. Rs.8000). Additional storage of upto 32GB can be added via a micro SD card.
As for optics, the smartphone features an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front camera. The tiny phone packs a 950mAh battery and is advertised to offer three days on battery and 7 days on standby.
Basic sensors like Gyroscope, G-Sensor, and Compass are present while the connectivity options include GPS, Bluetooth v4.0, and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n.
The device is expected to be shipped sometime in August. While this phone doesn’t look to compete directly with any of the smartphones, this can serve well as a spare device.
