ZTE Skate, Libra, and Tureis delayed in the UK though still coming this month, Skate even cheaper
At the beginning of September, we let you know that Chinese phone maker ZTE was getting ready to sell its first own-branded smartphones in the UK. Previously, the company was best known for manufacturing handsets for operators. But starting this year it’s going to focus on direct sales on the UK market.
So ZTE announced three Android smartphones, the Skate, Libra, and Tureis, and planned on having them available this month. Unfortunately, the initial shipping terms have been changed, but the delay isn’t very big and all three phones will be out before the end of September.
Well-known online retailer Clove has announced that the ZTE Skate and Libra are now set to ship on September 23, and the ZTE Tureis will be heading to customers on September 27.
But there’s also some good news. The 4.3-inch Android-powered ZTE Skate has seen its price cut right before launch. Clove now offers the SIM-free and unlocked ZTE Skate for just £219.60, VAT included.
The prices for the other two ZTE phones remain unchanged. The Libra will set you back £166.80, and the Tureis will cost £144.
