There’s less than a week to go before the MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2014 starts. This event brings together the top mobile businesses in the world and is an avenue to launch new products. One such company that will be making an appearance in this year’s event is Chinese company ZTE that aims to launch a new Android smartphone.
According to Adam Zeng, CEO of ZTE Mobile Devices and Executive Vice President of ZTE Corporation, “This year, we are looking to work even more closely with our customers worldwide to develop the products they want and deliver a superior customer experience. They have told us that they want ever more innovative and high-performance products, so at MWC 2014 we are delivering this with the launch of two new high-profile devices, the ultra slim Grand Memo II LTE with 6 inch screen and the ZTE Open C in partnership with Mozilla and Telefonica. We expect 2014 to be our strongest year yet – and we’re putting our customers at the heart of everything we do to help us achieve that.”
The ZTE Grand Memo II LTE is going to be the successor to last year’s Grand Memo which also made its debut at the MWC. There’s still little we know about this upcoming device save for the fact that it will have a 6-inch display and of course has an LTE feature. It’s also reportedly going to be a very slim device.
As far as specifications goes it should be better than the Grand Memo. The original Grand Memo had a 5.7-inch 720p display and used a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 running at 1.5 GHz.
ZTE will also be showing its latest Android custom interface called the MiFavor 2.3. We might even be seeing this interface being used in the Grand Memo II LTE.
Other Android devices that the company will be showcasing at the MWC 2014 include the Grand S II flagship smartphone, Nubia 5S, Nubia 5S mini, and the popular Blade series of devices.
Finally, a new Firefox smartphone will also be launched by the company called the ZTE Open C which will be running on Firefox OS 1.3. No other details were revealed regarding this model.
