ZTE becomes the first Chinese company to have an Android 4.2 Jelly Bean smartphone: N880E
Back in July, we told you that the N880E smartphone became the first from ZTE to run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Now the N880E is in the news again: ZTE has announced that the handset has been updated to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, this making ZTE the first Chinese company to put the new version of the OS on a phone.
The N880E is available only in China (since May), and it’s been sold in more than 1 million units. What’s interesting about it is that, although it is the first to get Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, it can’t be included in the company’s line-up of high-end smartphones. The handset – pictured below – features a 4 inch WVGA display, 3MP rear camera, single-core 1GHz Qualcomm MSM7627A processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 1650 mAh battery.
“ZTE will introduce more models on Android 4.2 in the future, and will continue to make improvements to equipment performance and stability, ensuring that our handsets meet with the high expectations of today’s consumers,” declared He Shiyou, ZTE’s Head of Terminal Division.
Android 4.2 Jelly Bean debuted earlier this month with the LG-made Google Nexus 4 and the Samsung-made Google Nexus 10. Other two devices that are already running it are the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus 7 (manufactured by Asus).
