Chinese mobile manufacturer will launch three new Android smartphones next week.
ZTE has announced that it is to launch three new Android smartphones.
The Chinese mobile manufacturer will unveil the Mimosa X, the PF200 and the N910 at the mobile industry's Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona, Spain next week.
The Mimosa X uses the latest version of search giant Google’s mobile operating system Android, known as Ice Cream Sandwich, and is powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, making it at least as powerful as Apple’s iPhone 4S.
The handset is also the first phone to pack the NVIDIA Icera 450 HSPA+ modem, which increases the speed at which it can access the internet, download apps and send photo and video messages while reducing power consumption.
He Shiyou, executive vice president and head of the terminal division of ZTE, said: “The Tegra processor and Icera modem will play an important part in the development of the mobile handset market, and ZTE has worked closely with NVIDIA to develop the Mimosa X smartphone in time for launch at this major global telecoms industry event.”
The Mimosa X also features a five megapixel rear-facing camera, a 0.3Mp front-facing camera for video calling, high-definition (HD) video recording and playback, and Dolby sound (which reduces unwanted noise and storage requirements of audio files).
The PF200 and N910 are both long-term evolution, or LTE, handsets, which means they are able to use beyond 3G mobile networks, improving the speed and quality of web access and clarity of calls.
With LTE being trialled in the UK by the likes of Everything Everywhere and O2, ahead of the auction for radio spectrum needed to transmit the next-generation mobile signal in the UK, both handsets are primed to benefit from the upgrade when it arrives.
Both phones also use Ice Cream Sandwich, with the PF200 rocking a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor and the N910 a meaty 1.5Ghz chip - both more powerful than those sported by the iPhone 4S.
The Mimosa X will be on sale in the spring. Availability of the PF200 and N910 has not yet been confirmed.
