Phablets are the new fad for phone manufacturers. It’s been a pretty successful fad, so we’re starting to see those manufacturers try out newer and bigger things. ZTE, for instance, released an incredibly powerful 5-inch, 1080p device called the Z5, to compete with Samsung’s Note II and HTC’s Droid DNA. ZTE didn’t really trump either device with the Z5, so now it looks like they’re upping the ante a bit by preparing a 5.7 inch powerhouse. The phone, right now only known by a model number P945, will sport a 720p display and a quad-core processor. It’s a shame to see a downgrade in resolution to get that higher screen resolution, but time will tell if that’s going to make a huge difference on the phone’s success. Aside from that, it’s got standard high-end specs and a tentative Chinese release for either the first or second quarter of 2013. Hopefully we see it on American shores soon after that.
