The Mobile World Congress 2013 doesn’t lack product announcements and we can hardly keep up with the mobile companies. The latest device that was just unveiled is the ZTE Grand Memo, which is a big smartphone meant to be a competitor for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the LG Optimus G Pro.
According to the handset’s name you realize it’s a phablet without even looking at it. It comes with a 5.7-inch display that seems too large at first glance, but can be just enough for those who want it big. Plus, ZTE is a Chinese manufacturer which means that the product will be cheaper than the ones of the South Korean companies.
Moving on to the specifications, the Grand Memo can be considered a high-end device, tough some of the specs remind us of lats years’s smartphones. So, the ZTE Grand Memo features a 5.7-inch screen with a pixel resolution of 1280 x 720, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core CPU clocked at 1.7 GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and DNLA support. The smartphone sports two cameras: a 13MP one in the back capable of recording HD video, and a 1MP front-facing shooter. The Grand Memo has a huge 3200 mAh battery, while the operating system will be Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with custom UI on top.
The smartphone will be available starting next month in China, while the Europeans will get in in April. We are not sure of the phable will reach the US market yet. As for the price, the Chinese companies didn’t offer any details about the matter, but as I said, the ZTE Grand Memo will cost less that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the LG Optimus G Pro.
