ZTE officially unveils the LTE-enabled sequel to its Grand Memo flagship
ZTE Grand Memo II LTE is running KitKat hidden beneath the branded MiFavor 2.3 UI
ZTE finally made the sequel to its phablet official at MWC in Barcelona. The ZTE Grand Memo II LTE is another take on the sans stylus device exactly one year later and marks the second attempt of the Chinese manufacturer to strike the phablet category with a 6-incher. The handset sports a very nice sleek plastic body with a grooved carbon fiber pattern in black or white back. The device also shines with a 7.2mm thin chassis angular and up of screen on the front, as the screen occupies 80% of the front face, but the design isn’t the only thing packed into the mid-ranger that makes it so attractive.
The second generation Grand Memo packs a 6-inch IPS display with 1280×720 pixels of screen resolution and the mainstream Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor under the hood paired with 2GB of RAM. Other revealed specs point out at a splendid camera set of 13-megapixel main snapper on the back coupled with a 5-megapixel front- facing camera for video calls and selfies, as well as a powerful 3200mAh battery fortified with a proprietary power-saving software. In addition, the hyper-sensitive screen is enhanced with Gorilla Glass 3 and offers a 178 degree angle of view, and it can be used with gloves on.
In terms of software, ZTE Grand Memo II LTE is running Android 4.4 KitKat hidden beneath the branded MiFavor 2.3 user interface that gives experience a new easier to navigate redesigned look. ZTE has features two major software additions – SmartShare and miniview that enable users to only drag and drop apps to the two halves of the screen and to create a smaller version of the screen. The last one literally comes in handy as it will help users manipulate the device with only one hand.
ZTE promises the LTE-enabled Grand Memo II to hit the shelves in China sometime in April, followed by Europe and the US later. According to the presentation, a unit will be priced at around $300.
