Remember ZTE’s Project CSX? It’s the company’s initiative to crowdsource innovative new smartphone ideas. Last month we told you the ZTE community picked a winner, in the form of a self-adhesive, eye-tracking handset.
However, so far the winner remains unnamed. Now ZTE is asking fans to help the company put a name on the upcoming device. Interested parties are invited to submit their name ideas in order to win a $250 gift card.
You can start sharing your ideas starting November 28, but the competition closes on December 5 at 11:59pm ET. The winner will be announced at the CES 2017 in Las Vegas in January.
Users have already started submitting ideas. Here’s a few I think sound good: ZTE Union, ZTC Optic or ZTE Glance. If you too have an idea which you think is worth taking into consideration, go ahead and share it with the ZTE Community.
The upcoming ZTE eye tracking phone should make a debut with a 5.5-inch LCD display with 1440 x 2560 resolution and 543ppi.
Earlier ZTE said the phone will take advantage of a Snapdragon 823, but with the Snapdragon 835 announced a few weeks back, the Snapdragon 823 will probably never see the light of day. So it’s sensible to assume that since ZTE is committed to bringing the phone out on the market in 2017, that it will take advantage of the Snapdragon 835. Or of the Snapdragon 830 if it arrive in the second half of 2017.
Moving along, the phone will bundle 4GB of RAM/64GB of internal storage or 6GB of RAM/128GB of internal storage.
On the photography department, Project CSX will feature a 16MP sensor with f/1.8, OIS, laser autofocus and dual-LED flash plus not one but two front-facing cameras of 8MP variety. Last but not least, the phone will be supported by a 3,500 – 4,000 mAh battery and will run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
As for the eye tracking function of the phone, it will supposedly allow users to do things like scroll through book pages without touching the display of the phone.
