Palm Pepito – Palm’s Comeback Device with 3.3″ HD Display & Android 8.1 Oreo
From the last few months, we have been leaks about TCL launching Palm branded smartphones. TCL is already manufacturing and selling Blackberry smartphones powered by Android. Now, the company also got the rights of the Palm brand. As of now, there is no official confirmation of the launch of this device. However, the leaked press renders of the Palm’s comeback device are now leaked online. As the earlier leaks suggested, the device will be called as Palm Pepito.
The Palm Pepito will be coming with the model number PVG100. It will be coming with a small 3.3-inch display that offers HD (1280 x 720 pixels) with 16:9 aspect ratio. We can also see thick bezels all around the display. It comes with a polycarbonate body with rounded corners. Although the device will be running on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, the UI from the leaked image looks like it is inspired by the Apple’s WatchOS.
It should be coming with trimmed down features to offer lag-free experience and also more suited for the smaller touchscreen display. While the power button and SIM card are placed on the right edge, we are missing the volume rocker on this device. There are both front and rear cameras, but only the rear camera comes with LED flash. It will come powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz.
The Palm Pepito packs 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. However, there won’t be a MicroSD card slot for further expansion of storage. With all these specifications, the device will be backed by 800mAh battery. Based on the leaks, the Palm’s first smartphone with Android OS will be exclusive to Verizon.
