ZTE Grand Memo launching in China tomorrow, priced at $430
Announced last month as ZTE’s first device to sport a 5.7 inch display (1280 x 720 pixels), the Grand Memo is now ready for its commercial debut in China. The handset will be available there starting tomorrow, March 28.
51buy, one of China’s largest online retailers, has priced the ZTE Grand Memo at 2,688 CNY – meaning about $432, or €337.
The Grand Memo that’s launching in China doesn’t have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (or 600) processor, but a Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 unit (also used in smartphones like the Google Nexus 4, Sony Xperia Z, or HTC Butterfly). It further comes with 16GB of internal memory, and only 1GB of RAM. As previously reported, the Grand Memo has different hardware configurations, depending on market.
Running Android Jelly Bean, the ZTE Grand Memo features a 13MP HDR rear camera with 1080p video recording and LED flash, 1MP front-facing camera, ZTE’s own Cloud service, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, Dolby Digital Plus sound technology, MicroSD card support, and a 3,200 mAh battery (non removable). The device is 8.6mm thin, and seemingly has two color versions: black and white.
At the moment, we don’t know when ZTE will release the new handset in other markets. Anyway, it will probably happen soon – we’ll let you know.
