Palm-branded 3.3-inch smartphone in the works

Palm-branded 3.3-inch smartphone in the works

The phone was developed under the codename "Pepito" by TCL, and is destined to be a Verizon exclusive when it launches later this year.

As pointed by the report, this is the first Palm smartphone since the launch of the Palm Pre 3 all the way back in 2011.

Codenamed Pepito, the new Palm device reportedly carries a tiny 3.3-inch 720p LCD screen driven by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of local storage. Though we are sure that the 3.3-inch display along with the processor is going to draw much less power but even after that, it is hard to see this device lasting for more than half a day or so.

In 2018, a phone with Palm branding might be released running Android.

The Palm brand name hasn't been attached to a smartphone in nearly a decade, but it looks like it's going to make a comeback, as a new Palm-branded phone has leaked.

The Pepito will run on Android 8.1 and come in titanium and gold color variants and also, it does not have a headphone jack either, for some reason. The potential for a refreshing and innovative device was certainly there but according to the latest from Android Police, well, you'll probably want to wrangle those expectations a bit.

We'd expect it will land at the very budget end of the market assuming all this information is true, but whether there even is much of a market for a phone that small remains to be seen.
