We live in an age where nothing is unexpected, however, there always comes an incident or a thing that surprises us to the core and shows the potential of the human race and the capabilities of the technological advancement we have progressively worked upon.
Take the smartphone business for example. From what started with a brick size telecommunication device, handsets have basically evolved as mini-computers offering larger than life displays, DSLR like camera capabilities and so much power under the hood, which even a basic computer couldn’t match.
Apart from that, the industry has also given us some of the coolest designs like a flip phone, phablets with 6-inch or more displays and the most recent surprise being a fidget spinner-phone.
However, if you thought that you have seen everything, you are in for another surprise as the Zanco Tiny T1 has just been unveiled.
Do not take it as just another phone or a feature-laden handset rather just go on cherish the technological advancement it reflects.
The Zanco Tiny T1 said to be the smallest ever phone that the World has ever seen and while it’s smaller than even your debit card, it is also reportedly lighter than an average coin.
In times when screen sizes of smartphones are getting bigger and bigger with every passing day and users are finding it hard to accommodate these pieces of technology, a UK-based company has tried to solve this problem with the Zanco Tiny T1.
Marketed as the “calling and texting” phone, Zanco Tiny T1 comes with an alphanumeric backlit T9 keypad (another surprise), a 0.49-inch OLED (32×64 pixels) display, MediaTek MTK6261D motherboard, 32MB of RAM and single Nano SIM support.
The Zanco Tiny T1 can store up to 300 contacts and 50 messages at a time along with 50 incoming/outgoing numbers in the call log. While the phone measures 46.7x21x12mm, it weighs just 13 grams.
The toy-like package is backed by a 200mAh battery offering 3 days of standby and 180 minutes of talk time. Zanco Tiny T1 is a 2G phone (850/1900 and 900/1800 frequencies) which has connectivity options, Bluetooth, Micro-USB port, lanyard attachment and 13 voice changers support. The bottom of Zanco Tiny T1 features a mic and a loudspeaker.
While there is no support for No internet browsing, games, 3G or 4G connectivity, we couldn’t expect more from a device this ‘Tiny’.
Being the world’s smallest phone definitely gives the device and X-Factor which can justify its price tag of EUR 30 (roughly Rs. 2,280). Zanco Tiny T1 will be shipped on order to most countries from May 2018.
At this price, we have serval featured phone choices available in the market but the fact that it is the smallest phone in the world, all we expect from the device is to become a great hit among the teens who would love to have a phone for calling and texting without having one for the open eyes.

Moreover, how great a device it could be for 007 for SOS calling, to say the least.
