Chinese handset maker ZTE has announced the launch of its first single-chip LTE smartphone, the Grand X LTE (T82). The smartphone is an Android 4.0 ICS device and offers LTE connectivity.
The handset boasts the MSM8960 chip from Qualcomm, which is Qualcomm’s single-chip model and is said to be faster and more energy efficient than other mobile chipsets.
The Grand X LTE (T82) runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and the Qualcomm dual core processor clocks at 1.5 GHz. There is an 8 mega-pixel camera at the back that supports 1080p HD video shooting and and a front camera that supports 720p HD video calls. The smartphone has a 1900mAh large-capacity battery which should be enough when running on 4G networks.
The Grand X LTE will be available in Europe and Asia Pacific in third quarter of 2012. Now we hope that ZTE launches the smartphone in India as Airtel has already launched the 4G LTE services in India and we are yet to receive some LTE enabled smartphones.
