Smartphones have grown substantially over the last decade, with devices like the iPhone 11 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro measuring in at 6.1 and 6.3 inches respectively. Now, it seems as though Zanco is heading in the opposite direction with their latest phone, the Zanco Tiny T2.
According to Zanco’s Kickstarter page, the T2 measures in at a minuscule 6.96cm in height, a width of 2.99cm, and weighs just 31 grams, making it roughly the size of a modern-day key fob or USB drive. The T2 isn’t just a one-trick pony though.
Zanco managed to pack quite a lot of tech into such a small form factor. This includes a fully functioning 3G radio, a headphone jack, bluetooth connectivity, and best of all, a 0.3-megapixel camera. Although with a resolution that low, we’re not too sure how many pictures you would be willingly want to take. Other key features include MP4 playback, pre-loaded games, and supports microSD cards up to 32GB in size.

The key selling point of the Tiny T2 is its battery life. Zanco claims the phone will offer up to seven days of standby time from a single charge, making it the perfect ‘emergency phone’ for when load shedding hits or when you go on your annual camping trip.
The Tiny 2 was launched on Kickstarter and received full funding within less than a day, proving that there is a market for smaller, or in this case, tiny phones. Anyone interested in buying the Zanco Tiny 2 can order it from their Kickstarter page for R850 ($59) as part of the ‘Super early bird reward’ or wait for the official release and get the T2 for R1,140 ($79).
