Jeebus actual Cripes, I’m not sure how many more new smartphones we can take this week. Mobile Congress is next week, you maniacs.
Yesterday we learned about two new smartphones from ZTE, namely the PF200 and N910, and today we’ve got a third Ice Cream Sandwich-rockin’ chap from the Chinese manufacturer. Bloomin’ ‘eck.
Nvidia’s mobile guy, Michael Rayfield, gets a bit carried away in the ZTE Mimosa X press release, suggesting that this is the “first time a premium mobile computing experience is coming to the mainstream smartphone market." Uhm…
To be fair, the specs aren’t too shabby. The ZTE Mimosa X packs a 4.3in qHD (960 x 540) display, front and rear (??? and 5MP respectively) cameras, 4GB internal storage (expandable to 32GB via microSD), and – as I mentioned before – Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0).
On the processing side of things, we’ve got a dual-core Tegra 2 CPU and GeForce GPU. Not to put a downer on things, but we’re bracing ourselves for plenty of Tegra 3 action next week.
The ZTE Mimosa X is set to land in Q2 this year, and presumably the lack of LTE means there’s a chance it’ll see a European release. We’ll find out for sures at Mobile World Congress.
