TCL is about to resurrect another popular phone brand. This time it is Palm, makers of the PDAs which ruled before iPhones and Android phones took over. TCL now owns the brand and it is planning to launch a new Palm phone.
Renders of the phone which is codenamed Pepito already leaked weeks ago along with details of the specs. A new render has surfaced which is of a higher quality and provides more details.
The Palm Pepito’s model number has been revealed to be PVG100. Although, the device doesn’t pack impressive specs, what it has going for it is its size. TCL most likely believes there are people who want really small phones seeing as the Palm Pepito has a 3.3-inch screen. The overall size will be close to a 4-inch device since there are huge bezels at the top and bottom of the screen.
There is a single camera on the back of the device and it is on the right which is unusual for modern phones. The camera sensor and LED flash share the same housing. We are not sure of the material on the back of the device though we can see it looks glossy. The frame is probably metal.
The new render only shows the right side of the phone which is home to a SIM tray and the power button. Volume controls are definitely on the left but we have no idea what connectivity ports are on the device.
The Palm Pepito is said to be powered by a Snapdragon 435 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. It will run Android 8.1 Oreo and have a small 800mAh battery. TCL is yet to announce a release date but reports say it is heading to Verizon in the US.
