New smartphones in 2018 all follow a similar (and expected) design.

The Palm brand name hasn't been attached to a smartphone in nearly a decade, but it looks like it's going to make a comeback, as a new Palm-branded phone has leaked. They have a large touchscreen display, curved edge rectangular case, run Android or iOS, include an all-day battery, and may or may not have a notch and a headphone jack.

Now owned by TCL, the company that releases phones under brand names like Blackberry and Alcatel, Palm's first Android phone might have made its debut appearance, thanks to the folks at Android Police. You may remember the last Palm phone we got was way back in 2011 when the Pre 3 launched. Keeping the lights on will supposedly be a small 800mAh capacity battery.

He joined the Parisians from Monaco in 2015 but struggled for playing time at the Parc Des Pricess last term - featuring just 20 times in the French League.

Do you think a small budget phone like this will find a market or have we all moved on to bigger and arguably better things?

According to Android Police's inside source, the device will incorporate a 3.3-inch LCD with 720p resolution and will be powered by a Snapdragon 435 processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The device is codenamed "Pepito" and is said to be headed to Verizon and based on its rumored specs, we have to wonder who it might appeal to. Apparently Verizon has made a decision to offer it for sale.
