Exclusive: Palm’s new Android phone has a tiny 3.3″ screen and 800mAh battery – here it is

Thursday, August 9th, 2018

 

What you're seeing above is the first Palm smartphone since the Pre 3 was announced in 2011. Currently codenamed 'Pepito,' this new handset is headed for Verizon, and it's the possibly the weirdest Android phone of 2018. Sporting a tiny 3.3-inch 720p LCD screen, Pepito is easily the smallest Android device in years to be sold in the USA, and probably one of the smallest in the world. The diminutive size doesn't end at the display - this phone will have a tiny 800mAh battery, we've been able to confirm.

The next evolution in smartphone design might be the ‘camera island’

Saturday, July 21st, 2018

Smartphone manufacturers, now more than ever, are pushing for a bezel-less future. The infamous 'notch', as seen on countless phones this year, is unfortunately what we're stuck with for now. There are a few solutions for ditching the notch, like moving the camera to the bottom or adding a pop-up module. There might be another option - a 'camera island.'

Rumors are circulating that Huawei wants to drill a hole in the screen of future phones, so a camera can be positioned inside the panel.

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

Speaking to a source familiar with the company's plans, we've learned that LG is working on a successor to its V30 handset, tentatively known as the V40 - and it will feature five cameras.

Until Nokia decided to go all in with Android One, there was very little choice when it came to devices, but it looks like other manufacturers are coming around to the benefits.

Rumors have been circulating for a little while that LG is planning to release an Android One smartphone.
