Claiming to be the ‘world’s smallest mobile phone’, the Zanco tiny t1 has been recorded on a Kickstarter effort. As of writing this record, the effort has achieved $29,524 (roughly Rs. 18.92 lakh) of its $33,480 (approximately 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 smart phones, when texting and calling were the primary features in a cell phone. The Zanco tiny t1 is bigger than a thumb and lighter compared to a coin. Zanco brands the very small t1 as a ‘talk and text mobile phone’ with an alphanumeric keyboard. The telephone has measurements 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 tiny t1 can save around 50 SMS messages and also the last 50 incoming/ incoming numbers in the telephone log, using its 32MB of storage. Powering the tiny t1 is a MediaTek MTK6261D motherboard and 32MB of RAM. It sports a 0.49-inch OLED (32×64 pixels) display and runs on a 200mAh battery.
The Zanco miniature t1 has connectivity choices such as 2G, Bluetooth, and Micro-USB. The very small t1 is a quad-band phone and will be accessible in just two 2G band frequencies – 850/1900 and 900/1800; yet there’s no support for 3G or 4G frequencies. There is no online access on this phone. The bottom of the very small t1 comes with a mic and a loudspeaker.
Zanco is currently running a Super Early Bird offer that costs the tiny t1 cell phone at about EUR 30 (approximately Rs. 2,280). The phone ships to most countries in the world and will start shipping in May 2018.
