ZTE have announced two new devices that will be unveiled at MWC in Barcelona at the end of the month.
The first device announced is the ZTE PF200 which has a 4.3-inch qHD resolution screen, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a front-facing camera for video calling. It also has LTE, UMTS and GSM radios, as well as NFC, and DLNA and MHL high-def outputs. Pretty impressive specs really. Definitely a move away from their devices of past.
The second device is the ZTE N910 which has a WVGA resolution screen, a 5-megapixel rear camera and front-facing camera for video calling.
The ZTE press release also mentions that the two devices will launch with Ice Cream Sandwich onboard and that they will have 1.2 and 1.5 ghz processors. But they neglect to mention which way round. I’m guessing the 1.5 on the higher spec PF200. The N910 also doesn’t mention GSM so we may only get to see the PF200 in the UK.
Either way it’s good to see Android’s smaller manufacturers continuing to release devices to the market. Especially with what sounds to be fairly mid-high end devices.
We will be at MWC at the end of the month and we will more than likely be seeing these phones. Stay tuned.
