ZTE is no stranger to a budget presence on the pre-paid carrier Boost Mobile. To kick-off the holiday season, a new Android smartphone has just been introduced – the ZTE Prestige. Affordable phones are ramping up quite nicely these days, let’s check out what the Prestige plans to bring to the table.
Firstly, the 5″ display size is at a sweet spot for a lot of users. You’ll get access to Boost Mobile’s LTE spectrum (which piggybacks off of Sprint‘s network). You won’t have the latest version of the Android OS, Marshmallow, but on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) you won’t be far behind either.
The other specs match what you would expect from a lower-end Android handset, but it should be fine for first-time or basic users:
- Chipset: Snapdragon 210 SoC (1.1 GHz, quad-core processor)
- Display: 5″ TFT LCD, 854×480 resolution
- Memory: 1GB of RAM
- Storage: 8GB internal, expandable via microSD up to 32GB
- Cameras: 5MP rear and 2MP front
- Battery: 2,300mAh
The ZTE Prestige is expected to launch on Nov. 6th. The retail price is $99.99, but over the holiday season Boost Mobile will run a promotion that cuts the price in half to $49.99. You’ll be able to check which stores will offer that deal at: http://www.boostmobile.com/in-store-offers/
