ZTE Tania with upgraded CPU will be out in China by the end of the month
Many months have passed since we first heard about the ZTE Tania. In fact, it was September of 2011 when it surfaced. And even back then we knew that, aside from being released in Europe, it would also get a launch in ZTE’s native China.
We’re happy to report that the Tania’s launch in China is finally near. While we still don’t have an actual date to speak of, ZTE sales director Wei Xiaodong told CNMO that the Tania will be in Chinese stores before the end of this month.
Worst case scenario, that’s about ten days away. But it could happen sooner, so if you’ve been (patiently) waiting for the Tania to hit China, your wait is almost over. Unfortunately we don’t know how much the Tania will cost in China just yet.
The ZTE Tania that will be launched in China will apparently have a 1.4 GHz single-core processor, and not a 1 GHz unit like the one found in the internationally-selling version. The rest of the specs seem to have remained unchanged, so the 4.3-inch 480×800 touchscreen is still there, as is the 5 MP camera, 4 GB of built-in storage, and 512 MB of RAM.
The ZTE Tania that will be released in China will almost certainly run Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh (codenamed Tango), for that’s the only version of Microsoft’s newest mobile OS that supports Chinese localization.
