Like LG announcing the Optimus Vu, ZTE has jumped the gun and announced the names and some specs of the two phones it will be unveiling next week at Mobile World Congress (MWC) – but we still don’t know what they will look like.
ZTE will launch two (at least) new phones in Barcelona next week, the PF200 and the N910. Last month, at the launch of the WP7 Tania smartphone, company representatives from ZTE told us that it would be launching a dual-core premium handset at MWC.
The more premium of the two phones will be the ZTE PF200 which has a 4.3in qHD display, an 8 megapixel rear camera, and 2 megapixel front-facing camera. The phone will work across the LTE, UMTS and GSM networks and will come with Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Bluetooth 2.1 and support both DLNA, MHL and NFC.
The PF200, like the N910 will be running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) at launch and it is likely to feature an unidentified 1.2GHz processor.
The N910 will have a WVGA (800x480) display of unknown size, a five megapixel camera on the rear with autofocus and LED flash along with a 2 megapixel front-facing camera. The N910 will also support LTE networks and will feature Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and DLNA compatibility and will be powered by a 1.5GHz processor.
“These LTE devices are the fore-runners of a wide range of LTE devices ZTE will bring to the market in the coming months, 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.”
