The ZTE Fury will become available at Sprint on March 11 (so this Sunday). Just what is the ZTE Fury, you ask? Well, it’s a budget Android smartphone. It’s not a device that will win any performance awards, but it may sell pretty well thanks to its affordability.
ZTE has big plans for this year, and the Fury is a perfect example of how the Chinese company plans to grow its smartphone sales in 2012. It’s reasonably capable, and it’s cheap. Of course ZTE also has some quad-core dreams, but the truth is that the bulk of its sales will come from devices such as the Fury.
The ZTE Fury has a 3.5-inch touchscreen, a 1 GHz single-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of built-in storage space, a 5 MP camera, and it runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
It will cost $19.99 (after a $50 mail-in rebate) with a new two-year contract.
UPDATE: Eleventh hour or not, Sprint decided to officially announce the ZTE Fury. The press release is here, and all the important details are identical to what you’ve just read above.
