It seems like more and more manufacturers are eager to jump on the 64-bit train in order to prepare for the launch of Android “L”. ZTE is the latest one of them, ZTE Q802C carries a 64-bit Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 processor under the hood, which is a 64-bit quad-core chip. This device will be available in China, and yeah, the company really has to work on naming their devices, this is just… no.
This device is sporting a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage (expandable via MicroSD card up to 32GB). The device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz which comes with Adreno 306 GPU for graphics processing. You can find a 8-megapixel camera on the back of this thing and there’s also a 5-megapixel shooter located on the front of the device. 2000mAh battery ships with the device and Android 4.4 comes pre-installed on this device with ZTE’s skin on top of it. The device measures 139 x 72 x 9.7mm and weighs 152 grams. This device has support for CDMA1X, EVDO, GSM, FDD-LTE, TD-LTE and comes in two models. Q802C is a single-SIM model while the Q802D is a dual-SIM one. Wi-FI 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC are all a part of this package as well.
It looks like China Telecom will carry this device. The single-SIM model will be priced at 990 Yuan ($161) while the dual-SIM model will set you back 1390 Yuan ($227), which is quite the difference and seems a bit odd to charge 400 Yuan ($56) more just because we’re talking about a dual-SIM model, but that’s just me. We still don’t know when will the device launch though, stay tuned for that if you’re interested and live in China of course.
Other than naming their devices, ZTE really has to work on pricing them, if you ask me at least. I’d argue there are better devices available for those prices than this one, but who knows, perhaps ZTE actually manages to sell a ton of these, we’ll have to wait and see. Your thoughts?
