Palm has been one of the most familiar electronic device brands for all these years. During the time when personal computing devices transitioned from the desktop to the mobile, Palm played a very important role but unfortunately now, for a couple of reasons, Palm did not successfully catch the smartphone popularization and gradually disappeared from the eyes of ordinary consumers.
After years of silence, last year, Palm launched the brand’s first Palm product with the same name and no suffix and recently the company has also released the National Bank version of the device.
The biggest feature of Palm Phone is its small size. It comes with the size of a credit card and weighs only 62.5g.
Although it’s very lightweight, Palm Phone doesn’t have a cheap feeling. Its workmanship is very delicate. The front and rear of the handset are protected by gorilla glass. The aluminum alloy frame has a certain curvature.
In terms of display, the PPI reaches 445 because of the small screen, which still looks very fine. Palm is powered by Qualcomm 435 chip and a 3 GB RAM. It comes with an internal storage of 32 GB. There is no volume button and headphone jack on the body.
Although the volume has been greatly reduced, Palm still retains the front and rear camera. The primary camera is a 12 MP sensor while the secondary camera is an 8 MP sensor. The Palm Phone does not have a fingerprint recognition module, but the front camera can be used to unlock faces.
Meanwhile, Palm Phone runs on Android 8.1 OS. The icon of the system app has been specially designed though the overall usage is unchanged from other Android devices. Some of the built-in apps include WeChat, Weibo and Vibrato.
Palm is backed up by an 800 mAh battery. Connectivity options include a Type-C USB interface. A Palm official said that the standby time can reach more than three days. It is worth mentioning that it also comes with IP68 waterproof support.
