Palm is a smartphone running the Android operating system, announced on October 15, 2018 and that will be available exclusively through Verizon in the United States from November 2018. Palm is developed, designed, and marketed by Palm Ventures Group, a San Francisco-based start up founded by Dennis Miloseski and Howard Nuk. Palm Ventures is financially backed by Chinese electronics company TCL that owns the Palm trademark, originally of Palm, Inc.[1][2]

Palm is marketed as "an ultra-mobile companion" device that is meant to be used in conjunction with a regular smartphone—positioning it as a cross-over between a wearable and a smartphone. It features a 3.3-inch display, very small by industry standards at the time, and is also very lightweight.[3][4]

It is the first "Palm"-branded device on the market since 2010 (Palm Pre 2).[5]
