The Jelly Star showcases significant improvements over its predecessor, the Jelly 2E. Unihertz has equipped the device with the powerful MediaTek Helio G99, an octa-core SoC built on a 6 nm process. In tests, the Jelly Star’s performance outperformed the Helio A22 found in the Jelly 2E by an impressive factor of three.

The new handset also boasts 8 GB of RAM, double the capacity of its predecessor, ensuring smooth multitasking and efficient app management. With 256 GB of UFS 2.2 flash storage and a MicroSD card reader, users can now enjoy ample storage space for their apps, media, and files.

Despite its compact size, the Jelly Star doesn’t compromise on camera capabilities. It sports a remarkable 48 MP rear camera, delivering high-resolution photos and videos. On the front, there is an 8 MP camera for crisp selfies and video calls.

The device also features a 3-inch LCD display with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels, providing vibrant visuals and sharp text.

Unihertz has ingeniously packed all these impressive components into a remarkably small form factor. With dimensions of just 95.1 x 49.6 x 18.7 mm and weighing only 116 g, including the battery, the Jelly Star is truly pocket-friendly.

Despite its compactness, the smartphone features a capacitive fingerprint scanner on the back for convenient and secure unlocking.
