Chinese companies like ZTE might be few and far between, they've still been busy working on their own flagship powerhouse smartphones to take on the competition. Today we've learned that ZTE's new quad-core 5-inch 1080p flagship smartphone is launching in China today, and looks pretty promising.
Nokia has dominated for the past 14 years. It looks like that'll all change soon, with Samsung poised to take that first place spot from Nokia to become the top smartphone brand in 2012. That's according to a new IHS iSuppli report, which claims that Samsung will account for 29% of all smartphone shipments by the end of the year.
ZTE today revealed its first dual-mode LTE smartphone in Hong Kong, the ZTE Grand Era LTE. This phone is billed to be part of the launch of China Mobile Hong Kong's first commercial converged TD-LTE / LTE FDD network, so it should end up being a pretty big deal over there. While dual-LTE is undoubtedly going to be the star of this show, there are some pretty solid specs to boost that functionality up.
DROID DNA. Today we're getting details on a ZTE flagship 5-inch smartphone to take on Huawei and everyone else in the Chinese markets.
quad-core smartphones were already overkill, then next year you'll surely be singing the same tune. The popular Chinese company ZTE apparently has plans to release their own flagship beast of a smartphone called the ZTE Apache. Complete with an impressive Cortex-A15 based 8-core processor. Yup, we said 8. More details after the break.
MetroPCS already offer a few different Android smartphones from ZTE, but it looks like they'll soon be getting another one to add to their lineup. The device pictured below has leaked over on Twitter by @evleaks, and looks to be a rather mid-range smartphone headed to the regional carrier soon.
@evleaks have been quite busy this week, and now have released another image for us all to enjoy. This time around we sure don't have any specs or details, but can clearly see a nice smartphone and on-screen navigation buttons.
ZTE and Huawei were facing accusations of being a potential threat to US national security by the House Intelligence Committee. In a nutshell, the Committee said that both companies could potentially help the Chinese government spy on the US in a report that followed a year-long investigation. Naturally, ZTE and Huawei (along with China for that matter) didn't take too kindly to the allegations leveled in the report, and today ZTE is hitting back with a full statement in an attempt to clear its name.
