ZTE Adds High-End PF200 And Low-End N910 LTE Android Devices To The Lineup

ZTE is stepping up their game a notch and rather than waiting until MWC to show off their new flagships, they’ve spilled the beans a little early.  The company has just announced two devices to cater to the high and low-end’s of the mass mobile market.  The two devices will sport Android 4.0 right out of the gate and we should be able to get a hands-on in Barcelona soon enough.  The high-end device, dubbed the PF200, comes with a 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU (unknown manufacturer), 4.3-inch qHD display, 8 meg camera and 2 meg front facing camera for video chatting and portraits.  It’s also capable of recording 1080p video and comes locked and loaded with radios supporting LTE, UMTS and GSM technologies.  Add DLNA, MHL (mobile high-def link) and NFC and we can see how serious ZTE wants to be/stay relevant in the mobile market.  As for the N910, the device is touted as a low-end, more budget friendly and economically sound device sporting LTE FDD, CDMA/EVDO radios, a 5 meg camera, 1080p front facing camera (2 mp), an 800 x 400 res display and a 1.5 GHz processor as well.  We don’t have pricing or a release date yet, obviously, but we can tell you this, according to ZTE these devices are just the beginning for what’s yet to come:

“These LTE devices are the fore-runners of a wide range of LTE devices ZTE will bring to the market in the coming months, and as more and more LTE networks come on stream,” said Mr. He Shiyou, Executive Vice President and Head of the Terminal Division of ZTE. “They will be feature products – among a very wide range of devices on display at the ZTE stand at Mobile World Congress 2012.”

Can we speculate that a Tegra 3 device is on the way?  I sure hope so.  Check out the full presser and another press shot after the break.
