ZTE has had a couple of big launches over the last month, but that isn’t going to stop the company from having another one! Today they began teasing their upcoming smartphone, the ZTE Star 1.

The retail box of the device was leaked a few days ago, and now we have the first pictures of the device, showing quite a sleek looking design! Despite the classy design, it seems to have taken some cues from Huawei with their Ascend P6. The source that brought the photos also mentions that the design of the device will be heavily marketed during the marketing campaign, but that doesn’t mean that the internal specs of the device aren’t good. In fact, the device boasts a 1080p display and support for 4G. More details should come soon, so keep an eye out for them!
