Meet the world’s smallest mobile phone

Say hello to the Zanco Tiny T1, the world’s smallest mobile phone, flying in the face of 2017’s big screen smartphones.

With a tiny 0.49-inch OLED display and weighing in at 13g, the Tiny T1 lives up to its name measuring a miniscule 46.7mm x 21mm x 12mm.

Yet into its petite phone body, the Tiny T1 squeezes in a nano SIM card and space for 300 phone book contacts, 50 SMS messages and 50 last calls in or out records, as well as a fully-functional keyboard.

Sure it’s not a feature packed as even the lowest-end Android smartphone, but it’s a fraction of the size, at a little larger than a 50p coin.

Meet the world’s smallest mobile phoneIt’s an impressive feat of engineering by Bradford-born entrepreneur Shazad Talib, a specialist in making phones of tiny proportions.

Funded through Kickstarter, the Tiny T1 will sell for £39 or £30 for ‘early bird’ investors.

However, in a world where you can get a decent if not spectacular Android smartphone for under £100, you may be wondering who’d want such a tiny phone.

Well it could serve as a great backup phone that can be popped into a wallet or purse and used for urgent calls when your main phone may be out of battery or broken.

It could serve as a festival phone; something much cheaper and disposable to expose to the mud and debauchery of certain music festivals that one wouldn’t feel comfortable putting an iPhone X through.

We’d hazard a guess that the Tiny T1 will find some popularity in prisons, whereby intrepid inmates could squirrel the phone away a lot more easily than even the slimmest of smartphones.

Whatever its use, the Tiny T1 is an interesting mobile in a world where many smartphones are pretty similar to each other.
