What you’re seeing above is the first Palm smartphone since the Pre 3 was announced in 2011. Currently codenamed ‘Pepito,’ this new handset is headed for Verizon, and it’s the possibly the weirdest Android phone of 2018. Sporting a tiny 3.3-inch 720p LCD screen, Pepito is easily the smallest Android device in years to be sold in the USA, and probably one of the smallest in the world. The diminutive size doesn’t end at the display – this phone will have a tiny 800mAh battery, we’ve been able to confirm. That probably doesn’t make this phone much of an all-day device, and it really is a bit of a head-scratcher.
The Pepito is powered by a Snapdragon 435 processor and, oddly, has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage according to our source. Of course, it’s possible there could be multiple storage and RAM SKUs depending on region and operator. We don’t have any information about where this device is being released aside from Verizon here in America.
Not the highest-specced phone, but I like the elegant design and tiny size – bucks the trend, really, in a welcome way. The logo needs some work though.
