is that this is the world’s “smallest GSM phone” Top News Smartphones might have made 55-inch displays a common sight but it looks like there’s a new phone in town that wants to beat this trend Elari NanoPhone C has been launched in India and the claim is that this is the world’s “smallest GSM phone” No it is not a smartphone but a feature phone But it comes with support for a microSD card The feature phone is launching on e-commerce platform Yerhacom According to a press statement fromYerhacom which is an e-commerce website with focus on technology products the phone called Elari NanoPhone C is the “anti-smart mobile phone” and no bigger than a credit card The exact dimensions of this feature phone are 358 mm x 944 mm x 6 mm which means this phone is 14 inches wide 371 inches in length and only 02-inches in thickness That’s pretty small for a phone The phone also weighs only 30 grams and claims to be the world’s lightest smartphone as well So what does this small “anti-smartphone” feature phone offer It has an aluminium casing along with a silicon keypad on board which is essential to most feature phones It has a coloured TFT display space for a microSD slot along with microSIM card The phone can support up to 32 GB storage and the phone has an MP3 player FM radio and alarm Again in the feature phone market you can’t really afford to give up on these features because otherwise there is nothing to do on the phone Elari NanoPhone C is the “anti-smart mobile phone” and no bigger than a credit card Elari NanoPhone C also has a voice recorder so you can record phone calls directly on the SDCard The company also claims the Bluetooth feature will let users pair this phone with any iOS Android phone to receive calls Though taking calls on a feature phone by linking your smartphone sounds rather unconvincing Elari NanoPhone C will also let you save up to 1000 contacts and offers 4 days of battery life in standby mode The actual talktime offered is 4 hours which is terrible considering this is a feature phone The phone also has a headphone jack to listen to music and a microUSB port for charging and data transferring The phone comes in rose gold black and silver colour options The price for the world’s lightest smallest phone with a not so great battery life: Rs 3940 So yeah this costs more than the Nokia 3310 right now Oh and this is already listed as
