The company that, for many, laid the foundations of what we now know as smartphones, has returned. Palm has decided to leave the silence in which it was immersed for several years, to present today a new smartphone based on Android , the first of a new era, which as expected is the strangest we have seen in this 2018 .
A signature as veteran as it is Palm knows that, at this point, it is virtually impossible to start from scratch and get to fight face to face with the big phone industry. Therefore, the company is committed to the philosophy “if you can not with your enemy, join him” , launching the Palm-yes, the smartphone is also called that-a device that more than an independent phone, comes to be the companion Perfect for our personal smartphone.
This is the Palm: Android, 3.3-inch screen and 800 mAh battery in a 350-dollar mobile
The first thing that draws attention when viewing the device is, logically, its physical appearance. We are not facing a conventional smartphone, far from it. Its screen, of only 3.3 inches LCD with a surprising density of 445 ppi pixels , allows the Palm to be only 96.6 millimeters high and 50 millimeters wide . In addition, I am afraid that your weight, only 62 grams, will not be a problem when it comes to carrying it in your pocket – in any case, the difficulty will be to know if we really carry it on.
As for its design itself, the Palm boasts the curves that surround its entire body made of aluminum and glass . At his back is a single 12-megapixel camera, accompanied by an LED flash that, according to
The company responsible for carrying out the project, led by two former vice presidents of design of Samsung, and funded by Stephen Curry himself, had the idea of creating a device to help users to disconnect from their main smartphone . Therefore, the Palm, still running Android 8.1 Oreo and a layer of personalization created to improve usability in such a small panel, integrates tools in its software designed to distract the user as little as possible . “Life Mode”, for example, will reduce the number of terminal functions and enable different “Do Not Disturb” or “Energy Saving” modes, including activating the Wi-Fi or mobile data connection only when the screen is on. .
Despite this, the interior of the terminal is like any other low-end Android smartphone we can find in the market. The Snapdragon 435 is the processor that gives life, accompanied by 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and 800 mAh battery that promises to last all day before going through the charger -USB Type C, another point in favor of this minuscule phone. We also found facial unlocking, built-in Google Assistant, LTE, GPS, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n and nanoSIM integrated non-removable.
For those who were already thinking about getting this adorable Android smartphone under the Palm seal, I’m afraid it will not be so easy. The company has launched the device through a collaboration with the US operator Verizon – hence the nanoSD non-removable -, which will start selling it from November, at a price of 349 dollars, about 300 euros to change.
