ZTE Era – Chinese manufacturer unveils new quad-core superphone

It’s a well know fact that there’s a few upstarts who’re causing some big time stylee commotion in the mobile industry, and they’re best described as “ex-OEM manufacturers from China”. Chief among them are ZTE and Huawei, but today’s story is about the former, ‘cos according to their own press release, ZTE have only gone and announced a Tegra 3-powered, quad-core superphone.

Yes, basically, a company regarded by many as a young upstart in the industry has gone and announced a phone that’s more powerful than the HTC Sensation XE, which is, when you get right down to it, one hell of an achievement.

So, is it any good? 

Well quite frankly, yes; it looks like it’s going to be a proper little belter of a phone. In addition to the Tegra 3 processor, it’s also got a 4.3 inch qHD screen (the same as the Sensation XE), 8GB of internal memory (and yes, it has a memory card slot, too), and an 8MP camera, but best of all is the fact that all of that is housed within a metal body that’s only 7.8mm thick.

That is impressive, that is, and it looks like the only phone that can top it is the upcoming HTC One X. Of course, that’s not so surprising, ‘cos the One X looks more impressive than any other phone on the market (and if you’re wondering… yeah, I reckon I’ve decided that I don’t care about HTC not giving it a removable battery or a memory card slot, so it will be my next phone), but the fact that ZTE can come out and make something this cool is just awesome.

The Chinese manufacturer has said that they want to be one of the top 3 phone makers come 2015, and based on their current showing, I reckon they might just do it!

About TechnicalMarkus

It's a little known fact Technical Markus has now beaten both his Transformers addiction AND his Mass Effect addiction, by replacing both with an equally obsessive addiction to XCOM: Enemy Unknown and buying Humble Bundles for his Android phone. At the moment, he's pondering the actual usefulness of smartwatches and smart glasses, even if the nerd in him is shouting for joy at how sci-fi they are. He spends his spare time being whinged at to figure out what's wrong with other people's mobile phones, and drinking unimaginable quantities of tea. With milk. And three sweeteners, thanks for asking. Oh, and he's got an HTC One X, but he reckons his next phone might be a Sony, the turncoat...
