ZTE isn't the only Chinese smartphone manufacturer looking to expand its footprints in India. Chinese telecom giant ZTE will launch two new smartphones in India to better compete against the likes of Samsung and Apple.
ZTE on Wednesday sent out invites for a press event on November 18 in Delhi. The company provided few hints about what will be announced at the launch event, "We're launching two ZTE flagship smartphones, for the first time in India."
Generally, ZTE is expected to launch its much delayed Nubia Z7 and Nubia Z7 Max in India. The company could launch a wearable device at the same press event.
The press event is being organized in a gap of 2 months after ZTE launched the ZTE V5 smartphone in September. The ZTE V5 offers some respectable specs under the hood: a large 5-inch HD display, a quad-core processor and a 5MP front-facing camera, among other things.
Talking about the ZTE Nubia Z7, the device sports a 5.5-inch QHD display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, a 13MP rear-facing camera with OIS, a 5-mega pixel front camera, and 4G LTE SIM connectivity. The handset runs on the latest Android 4.4 Kitkat with Nubia UI 2.0 slapped on top of it. The makers have added a 3000mAh battery inside. The device measures 139 x 71 x 9mm.
Meanwhile, the ZTE Nubia Z7 Max, features a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, a 13MP rear-facing camera without OIS feature, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter and 4G LTE SIM connectivity. This device runs Android 4.4 Kitkat with Nubia UI 2.0 layered on top.
Shenzhen-based ZTE, which shipped about 40 million smartphones last year, aims to ship about 100 million in 2016, according to a recent published report.
