Over the past several years we’ve seen the size of the smartphone grow tremendously. If you’re looking for something on the other end of the spectrum, the Elephone Q may be the answer as it’s the smallest smartphone you’re likely to see.
A lot of companies are edging close to the 6-inch mark for at least one handset in their arsenal, but the Elephone Q goes the opposite way. The miniature Android smartphone has a tiny 2.54-inch touchscreen display and just enough features to keep it out of the “feature” phone category. It also functions as a pedometer with fitness tracking capabilities to boot.
The Elephone Q measures 90mm x 43mm x 11.5mm and sports a 2.54-inch TFT panel with a resolution of 240 x 432. It will get its power from a 1GHz MediaTek chip, but we’re unsure of how much RAM or storage you’ll get to go along with it. That said, the device actually has front and rear cameras, a microSD card slot, and 3G connectivity. The Elephone Q runs off a 550mAh battery that’s said to provide around 4 hours of talk time and will arrive with Android 4.4 on board.
You might think the Elephone Q seems a bit ridiculous, but the miniature Android smartphone could prove popular if they don’t skimp on the RAM. The Elephone Q price and release date are still unknown at this time although we expect it to be affordable considering its size and the manufacturers expertise in the budget sector.Share:
