ZTE announced a new low-cost 4G LTE smartphone called ‘ZTE Mighty 3C.’ Earlier this year, the company had launched the most affordable 4G LTE smartphone ZTE Blade Qlux 4G in India at just Rs.4,999. The latest Mighty 3C comes with better specifications and is priced at 499 Yuan (approx $79/Rs.5,100).
It sports a 5-inch FWVGA (854×480) display with a pixel density of 196ppi. The device comes powered by Snapdragon 210 quad-core processor coupled with Adreno 304 GPU and 1GB of RAM. The device is built out of plastic with glossy finish on the back which can attract a lot of fingerprints. It comes with 8GB of internal storage that can be further expandable up to 32GB.
The device runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop based Nubia 3.0 UI. It supports dual SIM dual standby and as said earlier it offers 4G LTE connectivity. Coming to the camera, it has a 5MP rear camera with LED flash and a 2MP front-facing camera. With all these entry-level specifications, the 2500mAh battery can give 10 hours of talk time and last up to 250 hours on standby. It measures 9.45mm thick and weighs 170 grams.
The company is also expected to unveil its high-end smartphone Nubia X8. The leaked images of the device suggest the fingerprint sensor to be integrated into the power button which we have earlier seen on the Sony Xperia Z5 series of devices. The volume rocker buttons might be touch sensitive since there are no physical buttons.
It is rumored to sport a 6-inch bezel-less display with Quad HD resolution. The device might sport 4GB of RAM and will be available in two variants with 32GB and 64GB of internal storage. There will also be a fingerprint sensor for securing the device.
Talking about the device, the Mighty 3C is already available for sale, and there is no news about the launch of this device in the other Asian markets. Stay tuned for information regarding the device in the coming days.
