ZTE intros Blade Q Mini, Blade Q and Blade Q Maxi Android smartphones
China’s ZTE has officially announced three new, affordable smartphones aimed at European markets, all part of the same series and all running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The handsets are ZTE Blade Q Mini, ZTE Blade Q, and ZTE Blade Q Maxi.
As its name suggests, the Blade Q Mini is the smallest among the three. It features a 4 inch WVGA display and a 1,500 mAh battery. The Blade Q has a 4.5 inch FWVGA (854 x 480) display and a 1,800 mAh battery, while the Blade Q Maxi comes with a 5 inch FWVGA display and a 2,000 mAh battery. The rest of their features are similar, including: 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, HSPA+ connectivity, dual-core 1.3GHz MediaTek processor, 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of internal memory.
Exact pricing and availability details have not been unveiled.
“The popularity of the Blade series across Europe proves that there is real consumer appetite for high performance smartphones at a great price. The features available across the Blade handsets redefine ‘value for money’ in the smartphone market, and we’re confident that the ZTE Blade Q range will continue to grow ZTE’s position in Europe,” declared AO Wen, General Manager of ZTE Handsets Europe.
ZTE’s approach is similar to Samsung’s strategy – the South Korean company is selling Galaxy smartphones of all sizes, from small 3 inch ones to 6 inch models.
