ZTE shares news of MWC lineup: Grand Memo II LTE, smartwatch, more

ZTE showed up to CES 2014 with a nice selection of devices in tow, including the Grand S II and Iconic Phablet (which we later looked at as the Boost MAX). We knew a lot about what to expect back then, thanks to the company announcing much of its hardware the week before CES got started. With MWC getting underway next week, ZTE is back to its old habits, and today reveals just what sort of spread it intends to put out for us.

The highlight sounds like it might be the Grand Memo II LTE, another six-inch phablet with an “ultra slim” design; you might recall that we got to check out the first Grand Memo at last year’s MWC.

We also learn about what’s next for ZTE’s Firefox OS ambitions, the ZTE Open C handset. This follow-up to last year’s ZTE Open (above) will be among the first smartphones running the new Firefox OS 1.3 release.

We can also count on seeing a ZTE Grand Watch smartwatch, the company’s latest MiFavor 2.3 Android interface, and some more of the same hardware the company brought to CES. There’s also the chance that we could still get a few surprises; last year, even though ZTE gave away some of its announcements early like this, it held on to a few for MWC itself. Check back us next week to learn what else there might be.
