ZTE has unveiled its new Grand X smartphone, targeting the mid-tier affordable handset market with the device priced at around £200.
The device was unveiled in London at an event attended by V3 on Wednesday. The Grand X features a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor and boasts 1GB RAM.
Physically the device is fairly sizable measuring in at 127x65x9.9mm and weighing 110g. Within its sizable chassis the device features a 4.3in qHD [Quarter High Definition] touch-screen capable of displaying 16 million colours.
The Grand X also runs on Google's Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. During the demo it looked like ZTE had made few changes to the operating system, with the user interface looking fairly similar to the one seen on Google's own brand Galaxy Nexus handset.
In terms of cameras, the Grand X features a 5MP rear-facing camera back up by a 0.3MP front-facing unit. Powering the device is a fairly reasonable 1650mAh battery that the company promises should last at least a full day's use.
In terms of storage the device packs 4GB of internal storage that can be upgraded via the Grand X's micro-SD card slot.
The phone will launch with access to Nvidia's Tegra zone, granting users access to a portfolio of game titles not available on Google's Play store.
The device is set for release in August via Phones4U on Virgin Media with an estimated £195 price tag. For a more thorough look at the device check back for V3's opening hands-on review.
