The world’s smallest cellphone has now arrived

Welcome to the world of the world’s most tiny cellphone — the four-inch Pulsar. It claims to be the smallest smartphone ever, and because it’s so tiny it’s best looked at with one hand.

If you’re going to tuck it in your pocket you’ll need to make sure you have a solid grip on it. It’s so lightweight you need one hand to support the weight.

The first Pulsar model will ship to China on October 5 with “deliveries of GSM-compatible smart phones to customers in other geographies to follow,” according to Pulsar, the company that announced the phone.

That means if you want to buy the Pulsar in the US or Europe, you’ll need to wait at least six months.

Pulsar claims it’s smaller than your iPhone 8 or your Samsung Galaxy S9. Although both of those phones have 6.2-inch screens, you have to struggle a bit to get your hand around them. If you want the Pulsar, you’ll have to get a hold of it.

Here’s what you’ll get in a box:

+Pulsar phone and peripherals

+Pulsar app for Android and iOS

+Pulsar extension cable

+So-called “lead braille converter,” which translates the phone keypad into Braille so blind users can use it

+Accessories including a pen, headphones, and visor parkade that attaches the phone to your bike in case you’re out and about. (There are several directions on how to use it.)

+Firmware update

+Two 1-meter-long cables for charging

The Pulsar phone is expected to have a 2G, 64KB storage capacity, a microphone and an average speaker, according to Pulsar.

Pulsar says it’s made it possible to make the phone “with one piece of industry standard glass.” That means it should have good durability. To give you an idea of its size, Pulsar CEO Ming Yue told CNN Tech that they want to protect the phone against the sun and dust.

Pulsar has raised about $3.5 million from venture capital firms.

You can pre-order the phone now for $229 from its Indiegogo page.
