Claiming to be the ‘world’s smallest mobile phone’, the Zanco miniature t1 was listed on a Kickstarter effort. As of writing this report, the campaign has reached $29,524 (roughly Rs. 18.92 lakh) of its own $33,480 (roughly Rs. 21.45 lakh) target.
The Zanco miniature t1 feature phone seems to comes from an era before the trend of phablets and big-screen smartphones, when texting and calling were the principal features in a cell phone. The Zanco tiny t1 is smaller than a thumb and lighter than a coin. Zanco brands the very small t1 as a ‘text and talk cellular phone’ having an alphanumeric keyboard. The phone has dimensions of 46.7x21x12mm along with a burden of 13 grams.
This phone supports a single Nano SIM and can store up to 300 contacts in the phonebook. The Zanzo miniature t1 can save up to 50 SMS messages and also the past 50 incoming/ incoming numbers in the call log, with its 32MB of storage. It sports a 0.49-inch OLED (32×64 pixels) screen and operates on a 200mAh battery.
The Zanco miniature t1 has connectivity choices such as 2G, Bluetooth, and Micro-USB. The tiny t1 is a quad-band phone and will be available in just two 2G ring frequencies – 850/1900 and 900/1800; there’s not any support for 3G or 4G frequencies. There’s not any online access on this phone. The base of the very small t1 comes with a mic and a loudspeaker.
Zanco is currently conducting a Super Early Bird provide that costs the tiny t1 cell phone at approximately EUR 30 (approximately Rs. 2,280). The phone ships to most countries in the world and will begin shipping in May 2018.
