Tonight in London ZTE announced their next smartphone, the Android 4.0 based ZTE Grand X and CDW were on hand to cover it.
The ZTE Grand X combines an NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core chipset with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The powerful processor delivers fast download speeds and video processing and, combined with the 4.3-inch 16 million colour Sharp screen (960×540) and cinematic surround-sound Dolby Mobile Sound technology, enables the Grand X to provide a compelling mobile entertainment experience.
The NVIDIA Tegra processor means games run fast and smooth, and one-touch access to the Tegra Zone gives mobile gamers quick access to the world’s best mobile games.
The ZTE Grand X incorporates a variety of connection capabilities including Bluetooth, WiFi and DLNA which enable users to share content across multiple devices such as TVs and displays, printers, cameras, and other mobile and multimedia devices. The smartphone also allows users to capture, play and share content using the HD video capability.
ZTE will be showing off the Grand X at the Westfield Startford Olympic area as part of their ZTE Grand Xperience, giving people the chance to see and try one for themselves.
ZTE are aiming the new phone at 18-35 year olds, and as such has teamed up with Professor Green to promote it, so expect to see lots of posters and advertising!
