It’s probably fair to say ZTE is well liked, being behind the incredibly popular budget smartphone – the Orange San Francisco, and the T-Mobile Rapport variant among others.
The Chinese manufacturer will be in attendance at Mobile World Congress next week, but it couldn’t resist blabbing about two spanking new smartphones – the ZTE PF200 and N910 – ahead of time.
First up is the ZTE PF200 (terrible name, huh?), which looks like being the new ZTE flagship. It has a 4.3in qHD display, 1.5GHz processor, 8MP camera, front-facing shooter for video calls and that, NFC and MHL-HDMI output.
From the press shot, the ZTE PF200 appears to be running a reskinned version of Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0).
The comparatively modest ZTE N910 runs Ice Cream Sandwich too. It has a WVGA display, 5MP camera and a 1.2GHz processor.
However, their LTE-ness suggests we won't be seeing either the ZTE PF200 or N910 in the UK. Are we bothered?
He Shiyou, executive VP and head of the ZTE’s terminal division (whatever that means) screamed: "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.
"They will be feature products – among a very wide range of devices on display at the ZTE stand at Mobile World Congress 2012."
Some of those specs are a little vague. For example, it’s not clear if the processors are single or dual-core, but we’ll be poking ZTE with a big stick at Mobile World Congress next week.
