Unihertz has announced the Titan Pocket, the OEM's latest in its line of QWERTY smartphones. With a display of just 3.1 inches in diagonal length, it is the most compact member of its series yet. Nevertheless, it runs Android 11, has NFC, Bluetooth, an infrared (IR) port and a campaign on Kickstarter that has already smashed its funding goal.

The Unihertz Titan Pocket is now being hyped as the world's smallest phone with both a physical keyboard and Android 11. Its maker thus asserts that it improves on its predecessor in being smaller and lighter yet retaining a lot of specs that consumers might want to see in this "unique" smartphone.

They include a comprehensive gamut of wireless comms, such as NFC, in-built GPS and Bluetooth (albeit of the 4.1 standard). Then again, its party piece in this respect just might be its IR blaster, a feature that is not included even in the most expensive of smartphones any more.

It would make for a potential universal remote (for example) that would be very small indeed. Unihertz has left room for a 3.1-inch screen (the type of which is not given) of a 716x720 resolution (which could thus be called HD-) above its physical keyboard.

Therefore, the Titan Pocket might resemble a very small BlackBerry - albeit one that also has a ruggized case, a 3.5mm jack and runs on the MediaTek Helio P70 SoC with 6GB of RAM. Unihertz has also packed microSD card support, "global" LTE and a 4000mAh battery into the tiny feature-phone. 

It is available for a price of 1,710 Hong Kong dollarts (HKD; ~US$219) via its Kickstarter page. It is live from now until June 18, 2021, although it has already beaten its original ~$50,000 all-or-nothing goal - and by about $516,000 too.

The clearly popular mini QWERTY Android 11 phone is currently slated to ship in September 2021, although Unihertz has stated it is only delivering to certain regions.
