In fifteen years ZTE has managed to place fourth in global handset manufacturers and, according to forecasts, will be the third for 2015. So we can get a count of three trends for this year: slim screen, speed and safe . This year, the Chinese manufacturer goes to MWC with two very different developments. One, the new ZTE Grand Memo!Perhaps the most powerful phone of all those found so far. And the other, the new ZTE OPEN, the first phone with the newly announced operating system OS Firefox, Mozilla.
Chris Edwards , chief marketing in Europe, shows the new terminal and ZTE announced Grand Memo, a true giant with five-inch screen.The new terminal, which bills itself as the market’s thinnest (6.9 mm.) , has in its interior with the new quad-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 , and 2 GB of RAM, making it probably the fastest and most powerful terminal market.
The rear camera has 13 megapixels and is capable of recording video in HD and 1080 pixel resolution. With this device, directly attacks the Chinese firm, and from above, the higher end of the smartphone market. Thanks to an agreement with Dolby , the phone offers surround sound.
But perhaps not been the Grand Memo is the protagonist, despite its benefits imcreíbles. Indeed, following the presentation of the new “monster” , it was the turn to the first of the Firefox OS based handsets will see in Spain, the ZTE OPEN. A much more modest terminal, but it opens a new ecosiistema and, perhaps, a new way of understanding the phone. Mobile. With 114x 62x 12.5 mm dimensions , is designed for younger people who want access to their first smartphone. But that is not the most important thing.
Earlier, in effect, Carlos Domingo , Director of Telephonica I + D, explained during a meeting in the Telephonica stand the scope of the arrival of the new OS Firefox, the Mozilla mobile operating system, a solution already embraced by eighteen operators and international manufacturers such as LG, Huawei, ZTE and Sony and is intended to “change the signature in which things are done” in the mobile phone business . Spain is the first European country in which the new devices will be marketed . To do this, Telephonica already developing a number of specific applications for our country.
All European countries will continue to Spain for next year and start throwing terminals in 2014. Spain is a country with one of the highest penetrations of Android in Europe, so that the operator wants to ensure that the release is accompanied by specific content of our market.Therefore the exact date of the first releases has not been defined,
The idea, however, is to finish the year with a family of products with Firefox OS and a sufficient number of applications. OPEN ZTE, therefore, was only the first of the new phones that are coming Firefox.
