Report: 3.3-Inch Palm Smartphone Heading to Verizon

From PC Mag: New smartphones in 2018 all follow a similar (and expected) design. They have a large touchscreen display, curved edge rectangular case, run Android or iOS, include an all-day battery, and may or may not have a notch and a headphone jack. A new Palm-branded smartphone seems to break most of those rules.

As Android Police reports, shots of a new Palm smartphone have been leaked along with its codename "Pepito." You may remember the last Palm phone we got was way back in 2011 when the Pre 3 launched. To say this new Palm phone is a little strange considering its 2018 is an understatement.

According to Android Police's source, the Pepito handset will sport a 3.3-inch 720p display powered by a Snapdragon 435 processor, 3GB of RAM, and offers 32GB of storage. That's a bit of a mismatch of performance and size, especially when you learn that this tiny phone relies on an 800mAh battery.

Considering the spec and the size, this can't be anything other than a budget handset. It will run Android, meaning it has access to Google Play and any apps that can function of a very small 720p display (imagine scrolling Twitter on this thing!) and it is going to launch in the US. Apparently Verizon has decided to offer it for sale.
