With the rapidly changing trend of modern smartphones, manufacturers are more or less settling in for the 5– 6-inch edge-to-edge screen size, but a UK-based company is operating a Kickstarter campaign for what it claims to be the world’s smallest mobile phone.

Named as “Zanco Tiny t1”, the phone has been developed by Clubit New Media. The 18-year-old company involved in the retail and wholesale distribution of video games, collectibles, novelty gifts, and gadgets.

The phone is smaller than a credit card and could be used as a backup phone. The company believes their product as “perfect for joggers, runners, walkers, cyclists and those who take part in extreme sports because it’s so compact it can go in the any-size pocket.”

Tiny t1 is a fully functional feature phone with a candy bar form factor. It works on the 2G network and powered with a 200mAh battery that is claimed to remit three days of standby and 180 minutes talk time.

Features & specs:

  • Tiny t1 measures 46.7mm x 21mm x 12mm and weigh merely 13 grams.
  • It has 0.49-inch OLED screen with 64 x 32 pixels resolution and comes with 32GB of built-in storage.

Other key features of the phone include nano-SIM card slot, backlit T9 keypad, micro USB, and Bluetooth. It supports up to 300 phonebook memory and 50 SMS messages.

However, Tiny t1 is still a Kickstarter campaign so it will be funded only if it reaches its goal of $33,480 by January 19, 2018, which seems highly likely as the company has already hit $24,419. Customers who pledge about $40 will get one unit of the phone by May 2018 “anywhere in the world”.
