For some years there is a marked trend toward large-screen smartphone, 5 inches being the most sold and size requested by consumers; however there is still a group of users who are looking for smaller devices, which mostly are people who do not want great specs, but a more portable and easily manageable size.
Today is almost a mission impossible to find devices less than four inches, of course, they exist and mostly belong to one of those thousands of Chinese brands flooding the market, but the minimum screen size reaches 3, 5 inches, eye, inside smartphones, because if we phones for calls and messages, there are devices up to 1.2 inch screen. But he has now come a mysterious manufacturer who claims to have the smallest Android smartphone world with a screen of only 2.4 inches, which has been dubbed Posh S240 Micro X Mobile.
2.4 inches at a manageable size
Posh Mobile is a mysterious and new manufacturer that not much is known, only that their offices are in the United States and is mainly engaged in the sale of smartphones online through eBay and Amazon, but has begun to distribute their products through third parties in other regions of the world.
In September 2015 Posh Mobile announced that rip off with making “Android smartphone world’s smallest” with a 2.4 inch screen, a title they have despite existing in China with very limited equipment specifications ( owners) operating systems and screens of this size, so it could be a really strictly, but not general.
Well finally after a long wait, the Micro X S240 has gone on sale via Amazon in the US with shipments to certain parts of the world, an interesting bet against a market that is beginning to forget smaller sizes, a market that Apple has turned, under his controversial strategy, but the point is that there is already present.
