ZTE is moving fast on the smartphone market as during the past few months the company announced several devices (like Venture, Fury or Athena) and surprisingly for most of us, many of them are coming with high end specifications. We like ZTE especially for its affordable Android powered handsets that are being offered with decent performances, the company being a perfect opportunity when you want to experience a new phone but you don’t want to spend all of your recently saved money. It’s true that the devices are sometimes looking like a cheap copy of more popular gadgets, but things can’t be always perfect.
Anyway, what’s interest us today is not about the recent history of the Chinese company. In fact ZTE is planning to release its first LTE Android powered smartphone. The same is what you see in the image, the Grand X LTE T82 being a mid-range handset. The phone was first announced at the CommunicAsia 2012 conference which held place at Singapore. The looks aren’t quite impressive, as the design is leaving a bitter plastic made taste. But, let’s say that the aspect isn’t that important for you.
Well, then, we should talk about the ZTE Grand X LTE T82 specs. The phone will come with a 1.5 Ghz dual core MSM8960 Qualcomm processor, a 8 MP camera on the back (1080p full HD video recording), apparently it will not be a front facing one though and a 1900 mAh battery. The best part about the Grand X LTE is that it will feature the Ice Cream Sandwich platform and of course the LTE capability. There are no other info available, so we don’t know the amount of storage memory or of RAM one, as for the price tag it’s too soon even to speculate something.
As for the future availability, ZTE mentioned that the Grand X LTE T82 release date will be somewhere in the third quarter of 2012, the phone being offered to the Asia Pacific countries and to the European users. There are no words about an US event, but who knows what will happen. So, what do you think, will this smartphone be good enough for you or you rather wait for a better one (despite the fact that you will probably spend more money in this case)?
