Claiming to be the ‘world’s smallest mobile phone’, the Zanco tiny t1 has been listed on a Kickstarter effort. As of writing this record, the effort has reached $29,524 (roughly Rs. 18.92 lakh) of its $33,480 (approximately Rs. 21.45 lakh) target.
The Zanco tiny t1 feature phone seems to stems from an era before the trend of phablets and big-screen smartphones, when texting and calling were the primary features in a cell phone. The Zanco miniature t1 is smaller than a thumb and lighter compared to a coin. Zanco brands the very small t1 as a ‘talk and text mobile phone’ having an alphanumeric keyboard. The phone has dimensions of 46.7x21x12mm and a weight of 13 g.
This phone supports one Nano SIM and may store up to 300 contacts from the phonebook. The Zanzo miniature t1 can store up to 50 SMS messages and also the past 50 incoming/ outgoing numbers in the telephone log, using its 32MB of storage. It sports a 0.49-inch OLED (32×64 pixels) screen and operates on a 200mAh battery.
The Zanco tiny t1 has connectivity choices like 2G, Bluetooth, and Micro-USB. The tiny t1 is a quad-band phone and will be accessible 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 Internet access on this phone. The base of the tiny t1 comes with a mic and a loudspeaker.
Zanco is currently running a Super Early Bird provide that costs the very small t1 mobile phone at about EUR 30 (roughly Rs. 2,280). The phone ships to many countries in the world and will start shipping in May 2018.
