ZTE Sales Director Wu Sa, also hinted that the Android handset “could be solar-powered” too.

Back in March of this year, the company unveiled their first low-cost solar powered handset, the ZTE Coral 200 Solar. With a price tag of just $40, the phone’s solar panels situated on the rear of the handset can provide upto 15 minutes of talk time for every hour in the sun.

However, Wu Sa was keen to add that the company will need to look carefully at how the Android platform (and solar panel power) would affect the handset’s features and capabilities before production could go ahead.
