The Unihertz Jelly 2E may not be the most powerful Android smartphone around, but it is one of the smallest. Teased earlier this month, the Unihertz Jelly 2E measures 85 x 49.4 x 16.5 mm, which is substantially narrower and shorter than either the iPhone 13 mini or the original iPhone SE. The Jelly 2E is lighter than both iPhones too, with Unihertz claiming that the smartphone weighs 110 g with its 2,000 mAh battery included.
The original iPhone SE and iPhone 13 mini have a performance edge over the Jelly 2E, with the latter utilizing the lowly MediaTek Helio A22 chipset and 4 GB of LPDDR4X RAM. For context, the MediaTek Helio A22 is also considerably weaker than the Helio P50 that powers the original Jelly 2. The MediaTek Helio A22 only has to power a 3-inch and 854 x 480-pixel display though, which should keep performance requirements relatively low .
The Unihertz Jelly 2E is orderable now from the manufacturer’s website for US$159.99. According to Unihertz, Jelly 2E pre-orders should start shipping next month; all units come with Android 12 pre-installed, as well as a microSD card reader.
