iPhone 4S Rival Alert : ZTE To Launch Two LTE Handsets At MWC2012

Chinese telecommunications giant ZTE has announced that it willlaunch two LTE based handsets at Mobile World Congress, which will start next Monday.

In a press release (that did somehow manage to get the MWC dates wrong), the company says that the PF200 and the N910 will both run on Ice Cream Sandwich from the outset.

The PF200 will be the top of the range model with a dual core processor clocked at 1.5GHz (possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660), with a 4.3-inch qHD (960 x 540 pixels) resolution, an eight megapixel rear camera, a two megapixel front facing one, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-FI, DLNA and NFC compatibility.

As for the N910, it comes with a 1.2GHz dual core chipset (possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255), with a WVGA capacitive touchscreen, a five megapixel autofocus camera, a two megapixel front facing one, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS (but apparently no NFC).

Like its rival Huawei, ZTE is clearly looking to make an impact and it is worth noting that the company hasn't said whether they will be introduced under its own brand or via mobile phone operators like Orange as it has been the case till now.
