ZTE, not very lately, had made a statement in the Smartphone market by introducing the Grand S during CES, the Grand Memo at MWC, the Grand X Pro sometime in between and the stunningly cheap U935. Some of you might have anticipated that ZTE will have to rest and come up with something new and exciting in the near future.
No, this ain’t is the time to take a breather. Tat too in a highly competitive market where every Smartphone manufacturer is eying that much desired third spot, right after Samsung and Apple. That is the one of the main reasons why ZTE is expanding its Smartphone family by introducing The Quantum, aka N8910 which is expected to be released this Spring
This new family member, on the face of it, is planned as a US-exclusive., being slated for a Sprint release this spring. It may not seem as exciting as the Grand S or Memo, it might just prove to have enough x-factor to establish ZTE in America.
The design of The Quantum definitely guarantees a second look. It looks decently thin which suggests that it would be stylish and light weight device at the same time. But the most prominent thing which we feel (and you may agree) is its 13 MP Camera. The shooter has a 13 MP sensor but a bit more style could have been poured in.
Now lets dwell upon some more things and look what we can get out of it. Besides the 13 MP cam, there’s nothing much to talk about but I think this device has got enough to make the Quantum a good prospect in the upper mid-end Smartphone market. For instance, its 5-inch screen induces a nice and bright 1,280 x 720 pixels resolution.
The quantum also comes with the dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor advantage. You may recall that it was rocking the market only a year ago and you should also get 4G LTE lighting fast speed.
Its other salient features include the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Processor, dual-band Wi-Fi and NFC, and 1 GB of RAM. Also, ZTE has recently acquired Wi-Fi and DLNA certifications. These features are quite usual but that does not, by any means, can be termed as less productive. The Quantum can let you down only at its and 4 GB of internal memory and 0.9 MP front-facing camera, but I really feel it has got everything to compensate that.
Now, the most important thing – the price. Well, by the recent standards set out by ZTE in its pricing policy – as ZTE did in the case of U935 – I do not feel Quantum’s price will put much strain on your pocket and it will certainly put some wrinkles on its opponents’ forehead.
