Approximate Reading Time: 2 minutes
In a day and age when smartphones are outgrowing our palm sizes, comes the Zanco Tiny t1, which is literally smaller than the average human thumb. As a matter of fact, it’s so small that its size is comparable to a penny.
The phone, released by UK-based company Clubit New Media as part of the Kickstarter campaign, measures 46.7 mm x 21 mm x 12 mm and weighs merely 13 g. The company claims that the Tiny t1 is the smallest phone on the market.
Clubit New Media has called the device a backup phone which would be helpful for people who are joggers, walkers, cyclists and engaging in other kinds of sporting activities. The phone has 0.49-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 64 x 32 pixels. The phone can support up to 300 contact numbers and save up to 50 SMS.
The device supports only 2G networks, a nano-SIM card and has a backlit T9 keypad for text input and navigation. It has 32 GB of onboard storage alongside microUSB and Bluetooth as connectivity options. The device has a 200 mAh battery which can, according to the company, last up to three days on standby and 180 minutes of talk time.
As the Tiny t1 is a Kickstarter campaign it will only get its funding if it reaches its goal of $33,480 by 19 January 2018. In any case, the device happens to be priced around $40 (approx Rs 2,500) and the device will be shipped globally by May 2018.
