ZTE debuts Grand X LTE for Europe, Asia Pacific

ZTE has today announced their first Android smartphone with single-chip LTE (Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, integrated LTE chipset) support in the form of the Grand X LTE. Expected to hit Europe and Asia Pacific markets in the third quarter, the handset runs Android 4.0 and features a buttonless design.  Hardware is pretty sharp with a dual-core 1.5GHz CPU, 8-megapixel camera (1080p HD video), and front-facing camera capable of handling 720p HD video calls.

“We are the first company to use the single-chip solution in a handset,” said Mr. He Shiyou, Executive Vice President, and Head of the Terminal Handset Division, ZTE. “The Grand series products are our high-end flagship offerings this year. ZTE aims to enhance its profile in the high-end market with the Grand series of smart terminals.”

There’s no mention of the Grand X LTE coming to the United States however we’d be surprised if we didn’t see something that somewhat resembles the design.  With a steadily growing push into the U.S. market, Sprint might make a good fit for the handset.
