Virgin Mobile launches water resistant ZTE Reef smartphone

ZTE Reef Virgin Mobile

The new waterproof ZTE Reef has just landed on Virgin Mobile for a very attractive price. Virgin Mobile is relatively silent when it comes to new device launches, but this one deserves a shout out. The ZTE Reef costs $149.99 without contract and can be snatched up right away. This is incidentally Virgin Mobile’s first smartphone of this caliber which will go a long way in convincing potential buyers. The carrier will make the smartphone available with the Beyond Talk plan which costs $35 a month and offers unlimited data and texting.

The Reef features a 4 inch display, 5MP camera, 1MP front facing camera, a 1GHz single core processor, 9 hours of talk time, 3G and a microSD card slot. The smartphone runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with some custom tweaks. The phone can sustain over 3 feet of water for over 30 minutes according to the listing, so you can’t exactly go deep swimming with this. But the water resistance is a bonus for a mid-ranged smartphone and something which the buyers will take into consideration.
