The New Palm Smartphone Is About the Size of a Credit Card

18 October, 2018, 04:58 | Author: Elena Summers
  • Palm is back (sort of), and it built a tiny smartphone sidekick

To recall, the phone first leaked in August and at that time it was codenamed Peptio.

The catch is that the Palm is available only on Verizon, and only as a second phone.

Palm is just one of the smartphone makers that the iPhone-Android duo killed over the past decade - the list also includes several noteworthy names like BlackBerry, Nokia, and Microsoft's smartphone efforts. The Palm brand that now belongs to San Francisco based startup firm has unveiled the all new Palm Phone in the U.S. The handset is exclusively available through Verizon Wireless in the country. And Palm is the latest brand to join this trend with the introduction of the brand new Palm Phone.

That is also the idea of the phone: it is meant to use the smartphone only for the much needed and then continue with your life.

The original Palm device, like its rival Handspring, was a precursor to today's smartphones.

For one, it isn't created to replace your primary phone. On the main screen displays all apps in a cloud of icons.

The company behind the Palm brand revival is out with the news about its new Palm phone device. These characteristics seem to be very bad, but the manufacturer assures that the smart stuff is not needed by their smartphone - Palm will work all day without recharging and will cope with all the tasks (naturally, it is unlikely that someone will run Asphalt 9 or use graphics editors). Wouldn't a smartwatch also help remove the need to pick up your smartphone, or carry one around during workouts?

According to The Verge, the Palm is around the size of a credit card and is 7.4mm thick, which is slightly thinner than Apple's iPhone XS. The phone supports all modern apps from the Google Play store, but, its tiny display may result in a less than adequate user experience. The phone is so exclusive to the checkmark that the physical nano-SIM is locked right inside the device. That's a device, at least on paper, that might curb your screen addiction for real.

The smartphone has a small 3.3 inch screen with a resolution of 1280 × 720 pixels. It has Gorilla Glass 3 on the front as well as rear, a speaker at the front, an 800mAh battery that charges via USB Type-C port, IP68 water and dust resistance and runs Android 8.1 Oreo. It's like an even cheaper OnePlus 6, which is saying a lot.
