Most smartphone brands we’ve seen follow the same trends and patterns to make business, hence their products almost look the same. But Unihertz is not one of them, and the new Jelly Star proves that.
The Unihertz Jelly Star‘s claim to fame is being the smallest Android 13 phone in the world. It has a 3-inch display, which is twice as small as a normal smartphone today. Albeit, it’s also twice as thick.
It also features a cool transparent design, with LED lights that are reminiscent of the Nothing Phone that also acts as a notification indicator. It comes in two retro colors: Red and Blue.
Despite its small size, it does come with a beefy MediaTek Helio G99 octa-core processor, albeit connectivity is capped at 5G. Unihertz also threw in a generous 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
As expected, it has a small 2,000mAh battery, which the company says is still large enough to last for an entire day. It then has a sharp 48-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel on the front for selfies.
You can be one of the first to get the Unihertz Jelly Star by backing it on Kickstarter for as low as HKD1,329 (~Php9,500). As of writing, it already made USD287,470 from pledges, greatly surpassing its USD50,026 goal.
