The bigger the better. That seems to be the trend in the smartphone industry going forward. However, one startup is going against the flow and has developed what the company is claiming as the world's smallest 4G Android smartphone.

Unihertz, the Shanghai-based startup behind the Jelly, calls the tiny handset as the perfect backup phone as well as a great companion while traveling and doing outdoor activities such as running. The miniature Android phone measures 3.6 x 1.7 x 0.5 inches. It fits in the palm of the hands and can easily slide into the small inner pocket of jeans.

The world's smallest Android phone sports a 2.45-inch TFT LCD screen and is powered by a 1.1GHz Quad Core processor. The Jelly runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and also comes with 1GB of RAM, 8GB built-in storage, and a microSD expansion slot.

Unihertz placed Dual SIM card slots inside the Jelly to allow users to easily manage personal and work-related calls. It also comes with a dual camera set-up, a feature that even the popular Samsung Galaxy S8 failed to have. The Jelly has a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and an eight-megapixel rear one. The removable 950mAh battery can last up to three days on one full charge with average usage and a full week on standby time. As mentioned, it's a full 4G smartphone.

Those sold on the Jelly can get their hands on one through the startup's Kickstarter campaign which was launched just yesterday. The tiny Android phone so far has over 2,600 backers contributing an impressive $238,585, as of this writing, which is way more than the campaign's goal of $30,000. The campaign still has 33 days to go but with the positive response, the project now gets the green light. The ZDNet pointed out that the Jelly costs more than current feature phones as it can be had for $69 during the campaign and $110 for the base model once it's out in the market. The Jelly Pro model will sell for $125 per unit. As reported by 9to5Google, the Jelly which will be available in Pearl White, Sky Blue and Space Black will ship starting August.
