Chinese telecoms manufacturer ZTE has brought out at Barcelona’s MWC a top of the range Android handset, the Skate.
ZTE is well known for their budget mobile phones that often get picked up and rebranded by mobile phone networks under their own name, but ZTE aren’t well known for top end handsets – until now.
The ZTE Skate will arrive running Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3, with a 4.3-inch screen and a 5 megapixel camera, which is powered by an 800Mhz processor with a Adreno GPU to support the handsets wide HD screen.
Due to their larger user base of OEM devices, ZTE has reached the number five spot in the world’s top handset makers with 60 million devices shipped in last year alone.
This new handset builds on from their best-selling Android ‘Blade’ mobile that was customised for different countries and networks, with Orange branding the phone ‘San Francisco’ – with a 3.5-inch screen, 600Mhz CPU, 3 MP camera and Android ‘Éclair’ 2.1 platform.
ZTE’s Skate is due to arrive in May this year, where there now appears to be a ‘skating’ theme running through their phones’ names. One Mobile Ring is looking forward to the upcoming Torvill and Dean mobile and the Robin Cousins Android device.
