ZTE, the world’s fourth largest manufacturers of smartphones, has just released the ZTE Grand Era and the 4.3-inch Grand X LTE T82. The Grand Era V985 is the company’s new flagship smartphone, and as such is brimming with features. It runs a Tegra 3 quad-core CPU and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, with an available upgrade to the 4.1 Jellybean Operating system. It has built-on 3D acceleration, and 8-MP main camera and a 4.5-inch High definition screen with a resolution of 1280×720. All if this is crammed into a frame that’s only 8.6mm thick, making it the thinnest quad-core phone in the market today. Along with the launch of the Grand Era, ZTE also released the Grand X LTE T82, a dual-core LTE phone with a 4.3-inch screen, Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset and Android 4,0 ICS. Along with the top two phones on ZTE;s new roster, they also launched the Grand X V970–a dual-core ICS device with a 4.3-inch screen and a 5-MP camera, the ZTE V887, their model with a 5-inch screen and a dual-core processor, the ZTE V889M dual-core phone with a 4-inch screen, and the ZTE V790, their single core, 3,5 inch screen phone.
All of the ZTE devices are dual-sim capable, and cater to the needs of everyone from users who aren’t looking for all the bells and whistles of a top-tier phone, to those who want their device to be as fast and slim as humanly possible. The phones will be made available to the public through ZTE’s official distributor MSI-ECS starting on the first quarter of 2013.
