Palm smartphone officially announced

Remember when you had Palm in the 2000s? The brand has now been revived by TCL and a new phone of the same name was introduced.

Palm 2018 Yugatech • Palm Smartphone Officially Announced

The Palm is not being advertised as a full-fledged phone, but rather as a companion for your current smartphone despite its seemingly good hardware. It sports a 3.3-inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip, and a customized version of Android that features apps in Apple watch-like grouped home icons, gesture searches, a ‘Life Mode’ for removing pesky notifications and bringing more important information closer, and quick toggles for faster navigation.
