Palm "Pepito" leaked as a tiny comeback destined for Verizon

Palm is Apparently Working on a Tiny Android Phone With a 3.3″ Screen

Palm's new phone is a Verizon exclusive and features a small screen and puny battery

TCL Communication, which builds phones under the Alcatel and BlackBerry brands, is developing a Palm-branded Android smartphone codenamed "Pepito", Android Police reported.

The device will also run a low-tier Snapdragon 435 processor, 3GB RAM, and feature 32GB of storage.

The codename for the device, Pepito, kind of gives away the phone's diminutive stature and at 3.3-inches with a 720p screen, this is the smallest smartphone anyone has seen in quite awhile.

Like we previously heard, the Palm Pepito is expected to launch on Verizon when it comes to the USA, and at this time, there's still no word if it'll be available on other carriers or unlocked in any form. Keeping the lights on will supposedly be a small 800mAh capacity battery.

As a brand, Palm hasn't seen the best of the days, but TCL is not giving up on the brand yet.

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 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. It will be available in two color variants where the first one will be in Titanium color and the second will come in Gold color. Assuming that the leaked specs are legitimate, is there a market for a phone like this in 2018?
