Small sized phones are nearly extinct in the modern age and only very few phone makers are still making these dinosaurs. And when they do it’s almost exclusively ultra budget models with pretty basic hardware. At least the design can sometimes catch your eye, like today’s newly released Homtom HT26.
The anti-slip surface with frosted texture and uneven diamond patterns is the most interesting thing about the phone, because otherwise it got pretty carved out, especially in the display department. MT6737 is still fairly okay budget processor even paired with ony 1 GB RAM and 8 GB ROM, but giving the small 4.5-inch display only FWVGA resolution (that’s 854×480 pixels) doesn’t feel very much on par with 2017. The battery capacity is 2300 mAh, cameras 8MP+5MP and at least it gets the latest Android 7.0 as the OS.
Price is right up in the ultra budget territory with $55.99 tag and you can find it right in here as a presale. Full specifications of this tiny phone follow.
