The budget handset runs Android 2.1 Éclair, and packs a 2.8in QVGA touchscreen with 240 x 320 resolution and a 3.2-megapixel camera into its 100g frame.
The Racer comes with 256MB internal memory and a 2GB micro-SD card, and can support cards up to 8GB in size. Other features include an FM radio, accelerometer, GPS and Bluetooth.
Spotify Premium is integrated and the device is optimised for social networking with Facebook, Skype and Windows Live Messenger all included.
"The Racer is ZTE's next step in making smartphones available to the UK market at prices affordable by the majority of consumers," said Wu Sa, director of mobile device operations at ZTE UK.
"Mobile handsets using Android operating systems are taking a large share of the market and ZTE is investing in the innovative platform with Three to meet customer demand."
Users can purchase the phone on a pay-as-you-go basis or on Three's latest 'One Plan' contract.
A 24-month contract at £28 per month will come with 2,000 anytime/anywhere minutes, 5,000 texts, 1GB internet, 5,000 Three-to-Three minutes and six months' free Spotify Premium.
