ZTE Grand X gets spied at FCC, headed to T-Mobile

A few months ago ZTE launched the mid range Grand X over in Europe. Now it seems ZTE and T-Mobile have plans to bring the phone across the pond to the US. The international version of the phone had some decent specs including a stock Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich experience, a 4.3-inch QHD screen, 512MB of RAM, a 1 GHz dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, and a 5MP camera, so we expect the US version to have the same. Of course, these aren’t exactly top of the line specs, but this isn’t meant to be a top of the line phone. We’ll more than likely see this released in the next few months with a very reasonable, lower-end price tag. I’m sure there are many people who wouldn’t mind having a phone like this…just probably not our readers.

ZTE Grand X available now from Virgin Media UK

Masters of mid-range mobiles ZTE has today bolstered Virgin Media’s catalogue with the launch of the Grand X. Now before you write this new device off it is worth noting that whilst the spec sheets of flagship phones continue to get better and better, so too do the midrange devices. The  ZTE Grand X actually boasts fairly impressive specifications, the highlights of which include :

  • Stock Android 4.0 Ice cream Sandwich
  • 4.3″ QHD touchscreen
  • 512MB RAM
  • Nvidia Tegra 2, 1GHz dual core processor
  • 5MP camera with HD video recording

These specifications were virtually top tier only 12 months ago, so to pick one of these up without a contract for only £200 is quite a bargain. You’ll also find the handset available free of charge on 12 month contracts, buy now and Virgin will even throw a whole year of free data your way!
