ZTE announces “ultra slim” Grand Memo II LTE
ZTE today announced the newest handset in its Android phablet line, the Grand Memo II LTE. The new device follows in the footsteps of last year’s Grand Memo LTE, mating a 6-inch IPS display with a 3200 mAh battery and squeezing it all into a frame just 7.2mm thick.
The device is powered by a Snapdragon 400 chipset (MSM8926, the quad-core version with the Adreno 305) backed up by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, with a 13MP Sony BSI camera around back and a 5MP unit up front. That hardware is powered by Android 4.4 KitKat with version 2.3 of ZTE’s MiFavor UI running on top. According to ZTE, the new interface is designed to simplify the user experience by “memorizing user habits” and utilizing customizable “intelligent split screens.”
The Grand Memo II LTE won’t launch until April (in China with Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific following thereafter), but we expect Anton D. Nagy and Jaime Rivera to spend some hands-on time with the device during their time in Barcelona. Stay tuned to hear what its “textured back” feels like – and just how smooth that custom UI runs on the floor models!
