The ZTE Grand X Gets Dressed Up in Magenta
As the holidays approach we normally see a lack of new hardware making its way into the news. With CES just around the corner though, it seems that ZTE is making a pre conference approach to a few of its new handsets. Earlier this week one of the manufactures phablet aspirations known as the ZTE Grand S made an appearance in the events schedule and shortly their after was being shown off in press renderings. The latest ZTE handset to hit the news is the Grand X and T-Mobile customers should be excited!
Waaay, back in June of this year ZTE announced the Grand X LTE for European and Asian markets and while its specs and details left us wondering when and if a release stateside would ever happen; we don’t normally hold our breath for such awesome. Fast forward a few months and news of the Grand X coming stateside has surfaced, in the best possible way. Neither a rumor, nor an insider’s speculation the ZTE Grand X has passed through the halls of the FCC with blatant T-Mobile branding! The FCC paper trail reveals the Grand X aka the V970T device will be making its way to T-Mobile at some point in the future and has the go ahead to run on the carriers HSPA+ frequency bands. Further evidence that suggest destination is provided by the rather obvious Tmo branding on the devices rear. Outside of a few variations of the Grand X to this newly magenta clad V970T it is expected to not change much internally. Speaker and camera placement have been altered a bit and the details of the filing show this new handset will come with a 1 GHz dual core MediaTek processor, a 4.3 inch touch screen and a 5 mega pixel rear facing camera. The remaining, un-told specifications can most likely be found already living in the Grand X LTE but in just a few short weeks we should know all we need to on this new device!
