ZTE Grand Memo is the first device to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor
Remember the Snapdragon 800 processor that Qualcomm announced in early January alongside the Snapdragon 600? It’s the company’s flagship CPU for 2013, and the first device to include it is the ZTE Grand Memo – officially unveiled at MWC 2013 today.
Unlike the Snapdragon 600 (used on the new HTC One), which can be clocked up to 1.9GHz, the 800 can go up to 2.3GHz. However, the unit found inside the ZTE Grand Memo is clocked at just 1.5GHz. But that, of course, shouldn’t be a problem – ZTE probably wanted things to be this way to save battery life.
Since we have seen the Grand Memo before, we already know it runs Android Jelly Bean. Its features include a large 5.7 inch display (with 1280 x 720 pixels), LTE connectivity, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, ZTE’s Cloud service, 1MP front-facing camera, 13MP rear camera with face recognition and panorama shots, 16GB of internal memory, 2GB of RAM, MicroSD card support, and a non-removable 3,200 mAh battery.
ZTE says the Grand Memo will be available around the world starting the second quarter of the year. It didn’t mention how much the device would cost, but I’m sure it’s going to give the Samsung Galaxy Note II and the upcoming Note III a run for their money.
