Images of what seems to be the upcoming Android-powered smartphone by Palm have surfaced online. These renders of the Palm-branded smartphone by TCL give us an idea of what to expect when it comes to the design of the smartphone.

According to Android Police, the device is likely to sport a 3.3-inch HD LCD display while running Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 SoC. The report goes on to add that the device will come with 3GB RAM, and 32GB internal storage. Though, it is likely that the company may launch multiple variants with different RAM and internal storage combinations.

As pointed by the report, this is the first Palm smartphone since the launch of the Palm Pre 3 all the way back in 2011. The new device in question has codenamed as “Pepito”, and it will be coming to Verizon. Considering that the device comes in such a small size, the report added that it will pack an 800mAh battery, which may very well be insufficient in the year 2018. Though we are sure that the 3.3-inch display along with the processor is going to draw much less power but even after that, it is difficult to see this device lasting for more than half a day or so.

On the software side, the device is expected to run Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box, and also that it does not come with a 3.5-mm audio jack. It will be available in two color variants where the first one will be in Titanium color and the second will come in Gold color.

Moving to the design that we have seen in the renders, it really looks like how the original iPhone or even the iPhone 3G would look like along with a mashup of iPhone X-like design. The device does manage to look quite like a mini iPhone X complete with a vertically placed camera module along with the LED light.
