ZTE is a Chinese manufacturer that is known for delivering low priced Android smartphones that comes with good specifications. They’re really not known for making knock-off models but their latest smartphone called the ZTE N909 looks just like the Samsung Galaxy S3. While there may be some slight differences it’s definitely a clone and makes a good choice for anyone looking for a cheaper alternative to the S3.
ZTE N909 Technical Specifications
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
- 4.5-inch display with 854×480 resolution
- 1.2 GHz quad-core MediaTek processor
- Adreno 203 GPU
- 1GB RAM
- 5MP rear camera and 0.3MP front camera
- 1800mAh capacity battery
This model comes in 5 colors and will sell for 990 Yuan or approximately $ 159. That’s almost a quarter of the price of the Samsung Galaxy S3 sold in China.
While the specifications aren’t that bad it does come with a quad core processor and is already running on Jelly Bean.
On the physical side it closely resembles the S3 but when placed side by side you will notice that the N909 is a little bit smaller.
The N909 is expected to become a popular model owing to its reasonable price and its availability in various colors. It looks like the company is targeting the youth market with this model offering them a budget friendly device that is customizable to their specific tastes. We’ve seen other models from lesser known Chinese manufacturers that are selling at a higher price yet come with lower specifications.
There’s no information yet on whether ZTE will be releasing this model in the international market or if any carrier will be getting this as an OEM device.
