Chinese device manufacturer ZTE is on a quest to flood the US market with tons of devices. It hasn’t been long since the company unveiled the Axon 7 Mini and is already time for another new ZTE handset.
The new ZTE Grand X 4 is a smartphone for pre-paid customers headed for Cricket Wireless. As its predecessor, the Grand X 3, the newcomer is intended to be a sort of premium handset for budget users.
The ZTE Grand X 4 is compared to $600 smartphones, which haven’t much going for them if you ask ZTE. Not compared to their newest handset anyway, which is available for only $139.99 a pop.
For this money customers can get a handset with a 5.5-inch HD display (meaning 720 x 1280 resolution) and a quad-core Snapdragon 425 clocked at 1.4GHz pumping power from under the hood. ZTE throws in 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD).
The camera front isn’t exactly super exciting, but you get the usual 13MP/5MP pair that is normally available on most budget-friendly smartphones. A non-removable 3,140 mAh battery keeps the phone alive and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow comes pre-installed (don’t get your hopes up for Android 7.0 Nougat though).
However, the ZTE Grand X 4 does offer an interesting feature – a fingerprint scanner located on the back that can used for some other actions as well, like launching an app or snapping a photo.
The phone also comes with a few pre-installed apps like AskMD – a personalized health consultation service and ZTE’s own Backup & Restore solution which helps you keep personal data safe.
For those interested in this affordable device, you should know that Cricket Wireless will start sales of the ZTE Grand X 4 on November 18 for $129.99 a pop.
