Loudly named ZTE Grand X Quad arrives silently in China

Loudly named ZTE Grand X Quad arrives silently in ChinaLast year Lewis labelled the then-upcoming ZTE Grand X as having the “Most Grandiose Smartphone Name of All Time” – which was a fair call at the time.

Now, though, there's the ZTE Grand X Quad, a name four times as grandiose, which is the title that goes with this couple of product shots leaked by @evleaks.

Curiously, and despite the bombastic name, it seems the Grand X Quad has already been available in China for a few weeks now, even though nobody in the West seems to have picked up on it largely thanks to the complete lack of publicity that seems to have accompanied the Android 4.1.2 handset's release.

So effectively, the @evleaks images are far from a leak in reality. As far as the specs go, however, it's another decent mid-ranger from ZTE: a 5in 720p display, quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 8MP camera, dual-SIM support (which probably wouldn't be a feature on any version of the Grand X Quad that hit the UK), and a decent removable 2,500mAh battery.

Whether the Grand X Quad will actually go international, and more specifically come to these shores, remains to be seen. It probably will, but we'd be surprised if it landed before Q3.

Dual-sim is the only feature that sets these kinds of phones apart. How great then that because of that we'll never see them this site of dodgy import companies.

Pretty sure not every company which imports phones is dodgy :p. That aside, I do agree with you; the lack of dual-SIM support here in Europe is annoying sometimes.

Maybe the Muricans were right and this is all spy stuff for the Chinese Government :p

Seems ok, we might get a version here if we ask nicely

With a name that long you'll feel a ploker asking for one in the shop though

I bet they were gonna call it the "strawberry flavoured, ribbed and lubricated Extra Grande" first....

I was joking :p
I had a 3GS - for 5 days.
I stopped looking for now. Will just wait until something surprises me.

Thank God for that, I thought you'd finally lost your mind. I put up with a 3G for 2 months...never again.
