ZTE and Sprint are working together in order to provide a new smartphone for its customers. Therefore, the ZTE Fury release date through the Sprint retails was officially announced for this Sunday (tomorrow to be more precise).
According to Sprint’s VP, David Owens, the device will be a low cost, entry level Android powered smartphone, designed especially for the older and not so demanding customers. The phone will be perfect for the family-type of users, who need a phone suitable for their work, needs and also for surprising the best moments from their home.
The Chinese manufacturer, ZTE, who used us with devices that are similar (in terms of appearance) with gadgets more popular, like the Apple iPhone, or the Samsung Galaxy line, has become increasingly popular in the US for providing low costs with decent performances phones, or tablets.
Furthermore, recently, the same retail, Sprint announced the Optik, a new Android based tablet wearing the ZTE mark. Its price should be around $99 under a two year commitment.
Anyway, as you can see in the image from above, the ZTE Fury is actual a “calm” handset, with nothing to impress. The design is simple but well done, though the case is leaving a plastic made taste.
On the other hand, the Fury specs are including a 1GHz Qualcomm processor, a satisfying 3.5-inch display, 512 MB of RAM memory, 4GB of built-in storage and a 5 MP rear facing camera, while the front facing one is missing. Beside these, the phone will be featuring the Android 2.3 operating system and the usual Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
If you like it, you can start buying it starting from tomorrow and only from Sprint. The ZTE Fury price will be only $19.99 with a two year contract. There are no words about the SIM free variant or about other pricing offers so I guess you should go to the stores for further aspects. We will update you with fresh news as soon as something new is announced, so stay tuned.
