Cricket Wireless on Tuesday announced the upcoming launch of its next smartphone, the ZTE Grand X Max. Scheduled to touch down on Friday, October 10, the handset features a massive 6-inch display and 3200mAh battery. The handset runs Android 4.4 KitKat and packs a 1.2GHz quad-core Snadpdragon processor, 8GB internal storage, and an 8-megapixel rear camera.
Indeed, there’s an awful lot happening here when you consider the price tag is only $200. Per the press release we received this morning, ZTE is now the 2nd largest brand in prepaid, 3rd largest Android manufacturer and 4th largest smartphone brand in the U.S.
Cricket offers a $100 bill credit for anyone who jumps from T-Mobile or MetroPCS before October 19. What’s more, a separate promotion sees the carrier tossing in more data for the money on the Basic, Smart, and Pro Plans.
