Magic numbers. This 4.9 inch Android smartphone is bigger than you might think

The Japanese company Balmuda & hairsp; – & hairsp; so far focused on the production of toasters, kettles and lamps & hairsp; – & hairsp; has decided to launch its first smartphone. And not just any.

Balmuda Phone is one of the smallest smartphones on the market

While the market is dominated by phones with more than 6-inch screens, Belmuda has bet on 4,9 cala. The manufacturer argues that most smartphones are too large to allow comfortable operation with one hand.

As for the specification, this one is quite modest. Balmuda Phone has:

  • Android 11 with the manufacturer’s overlay;
  • 4.9-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (450 ppi);
  • Snapdragon 765 with a 5G modem;
  • 6 GB of RAM;
  • 128 GB of mass memory;
  • 48 Mpix main camera with f / 1.8 aperture;
  • 8 Mpix front camera with f / 2.0 aperture;
  • 2500 mAh battery.

The manufacturer emphasizes that he wanted to design an enclosure that would stand out from the crowd. This one is otherwise dust and splash proof (IP44).

The dimensions of the entire structure are 123 x 69 x 13,7 mmand the weight is 138 grams. For comparison, in the case of the iPhone 13 mini it is 131.5 x 64.2 x 7.7 mm.

Don’t let the numbers deceive you. The Balmuda Phone is slightly larger than the iPhone 13 mini

In terms of the size, the Balmud boasts a 4.9-inch screen. Considering that the iPhone 13 mini has a 5.4-inch display, the comparison of numbers is favorable for the Japanese. But don’t be fooled by them.

First of all, the Balmuda Phone has a screen with a different aspect ratio: 16: 9 instead of 19.5: 9. And the closer to the square, the larger the area with the same diagonal.

The Balmuda smartphone is also shorter, but wider, and has a clearly larger border. The surface of the front panel itself (84.87 cm²) is slightly larger than that of the iPhone (cm²), and it would be necessary to take into account a much greater thickness.

So yes, Balmuda Phone is above average small for an Android smartphone, but & hairsp; – & hairsp; contrary to appearances & hairsp; – & hairsp; is not smaller than Apple’s mini phone.

Balmuda Phone isn’t cheap, but that’s not our problem

Balmuda is a brand that is appreciated, so the phone is also more expensive than the specification would indicate.

The smartphone was priced at 104,800 yen, which is the equivalent of PLN 3,780. For a phone with an almost 3-year-old mid-range processor and a single camera, this is an astronomical amount.
