ZTE is on a roll, Strategy Analytics is reporting a 42 percent year-over-year growth in smartphone shipments for the Chinese manufacturer. 15 percent YTD growth.
It may come as surprise that ZTE has consistently ranked as high as the fourth largest smartphone manufacturer for global volume and device shipments, and is a major contributor to the 3G and LTE (4G) standards that we enjoy today. What’s next?
Though you probably didn’t pay much attention at that time, you might remember ZTE said back in October 2011 that the Nubia family of smartphones will include several high-enders.
While this year’s December 21 shouldn’t have been awfully special, being just the pesky last workday before Christmas, the planets seemed to align in a very funny way, with three big events set to happen today.
ZTE is gearing up for an offensive on the high-end U.S. smartphone market with an expected super-phone unveiling at CES in January and an extra $30 million investment.
While most of us Android enthusiasts in the West will probably take a break from technology on Christmas Day, spend some quality time with our families and check our stockings for presents from Santa, Chinese techies might get an unexpected treat come December 25.
Just two days ago, we saw some real-world images of the ZTE Nubia Z5 show up online. Frustratingly enough, they didn’t show off a whole lot. Now we’ve got some images of the front of the device, but only a section of the screen.
The ZTE Nubia Z5 smartphone was unveiled at the end of October, however the announcement left quite a bit of unanswered questions. That said, while we still need those answers, it looks like a few in-the-wild style images of the Nubia Z5 have surfaced.
Although we don’t have psychic abilities as far as we know of, we were ready to bet that ZTE was going to counter Huawei’s newly unveiled 5-inch Ascend D2 phablet with a super-phone of its own soon. It only took around 24 hours or so for that to happen, so we’re proud to have been proved right and to be able to present to you the ZTE Z5.
