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!

Things continue to heat up regarding the HTC One 2014. Does HTC have a chance to wow us on March 25, based on the fact that we know so much about the phone before its unveiling? On top of that, ZTE plans on trying to steal the spotlight by making a big announcement on the very same day. We continue to see new Chromecast apps, but most of the major music and video apps are non-existent. We continue to hear rumors about an Amazon phone. Will they ever come out with one? and will anybody buy an updated Galaxy Beam? Could Flappy Bird make an encore appearance? and what the hell is the OnePlus One phone all about? It’s time to get caught up and get ready for another exciting week in the world of Android.
