A strange Nokia smartphone has recently been auctioned off on the eBay e-commerce site. Called Nokia Ion Mini, this is a project that has been canceled by Finnish smartphone and has no chance to reach consumers. According to the seller, this machine was studied during the period from mid-2013 to 2014.
The most special feature of Nokia Ion Mini, according to its name, is the size. This is a very small machine. When placed next to a smartphone considered to be the smallest on the market today is iPhone 5s, Nokia Ion Mini is even much smaller. Reportedly, Nokia Ion Mini owns 3 inch screen size, 480×800 resolution.
Although we have not had the opportunity to hold it in person, but through photos, we can also see Nokia Ion Mini has a very beautiful and sturdy design with aluminum cover.
Another special feature of Nokia Ion Mini is that it runs Android, specifically here Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. At the time the device was developed (ie between 2013 and 2014 as mentioned above), Nokia had a strategic partnership with Microsoft for several years to decide to bypass Android and select Windows Phone as a system. Executive management. Therefore, the Nokia Ion Mini does not run Windows Phone but running Android is a quite interesting surprise.
Because of its compact size, the configuration of Nokia Ion Mini is quite limited when it only owns Snapdragon 400 chip, 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal memory. Perhaps, this device is targeted at Nokia users who do not need to use smartphones too much but only need a small device to listen to calls, receive messages and perform some basic Internet tasks.
The configuration is not outstanding, but thanks to its toxicity, plus this is a test machine and never launched, the price to pay for Nokia Ion Mini is not cheap. Currently, it is being sold on eBay for $ 1999 (more than VND 46 million). If you are passionate about strange-and-strange phones, this could be a device worth adding to your collection.
