File this one under news we didn’t see coming. We knew ZTE would be showing off something today, and they did just that with the ZTE Grand S3. It’s a flagship, and it has a feature nobody else can claim so far in 2015 thanks to Eyeprint ID.
ZTE may not have the brand recognition of a Samsung or Sony, but they’ve been a company to watch over the past year in the smartphone world. That trend looks to continue in 2015, and one of the company’s newest devices has just appeared with the ZTE Q7-C.
We’ve spent quite a bit of time talking about ZTE smartphones like the ZTE Blade S6 and Max series. The company has also started launching more handsets globally, and the budget friendly ZTE N919D has just touched down in India for Rs. 6,999.
There are a lot of ZTE Blade handsets floating around out there, and we’ve been covering the lineup since back in 2012 when a Blade was caught running Windows Phone 7. The company is taking the series into the 64-bit era, and they’re doing it with the ZTE Blade v2.
ZTE is a popular brand around the globe, and it’s also a brand we’ve been following closely as they’ve slowly started to offer their handsets in the states and abroad. Today, a new smartphone from the company has appeared online, and it’s called the ZTE G719C.
ZTE brought the ZTE ZMAX to the states via T-Mobile back in September. Today, they have announced another handset bound for the US with the ZTE Imperial II. It’s not quite as big as the ZMAX, but it’s just as affordable at only $149.99 sans contract through US Cellular.
Xiaomi finally gave us the Redmi Note price for India this morning, but they aren’t the only manufacturer making a big announcement today. The ZTE V5 Max is gearing up the to go global, and the company hopes to steal some sales from the Redmi Note.
ZTE is one of the few Chinese manufacturers making an effort to take their handsets global, and we’ve seen a number of their devices arrive in the states this year. What we haven’t seen, is a dual-SIM tablet in the US, but it looks like we’re getting one with the ZTE K70 tablet.
Normally when we cover a smartphone making its way to India it is of the mid-range variety. That’s not the case with the ZTE Grand S II, and while it may be arriving a little late to the party, it’s bringing top-notch specs along with it.
Releases from major manufacturers have slowed to a crawl, but Samsung and a few others are still cranking out mid-range handsets. In China, it never really slows down and a new device from ZTE is gearing up to launch with the ZTE N958St.
Phablets. You either love them or hate them, there’s really no middle ground for the beastly devices. That extra screen usually adds to the price as well, but that isn’t the case with a new Chinese phablet that’s getting ready to land at T-Mobile. It’s not the OnePlus, but we think you’ll be pleased with what the ZTE ZMAX has to offer.
