September will be a huge and eventful month for the tech industry. We have a plethora of announcements coming from companies like Apple, Samsung, Motorola, HTC and others (we can thank IFA for most of this hype). This all seems to be happening during the first half of the month, but ZTE is willing to take a leap of faith and be the last to take the stage.
The Chinese manufacturer has taken it to Vine (out of all mediums out there) to announce a September 16th event, which is to take place in New York City. The Vine clip doesn’t tell us much – they simply ask us to come see “the next hot thing”. Is it a smartphone? A tablet? It’s anyone’s guess at this point, but we do hear ZTE has a killer budget phablet lined up.
While ZTE is not very well-known in the USA, We’ll have you know they manufacture decent devices. They have been stepping up their game as they try to further penetrate western markets. We recently reviewed the ZTE Nubia 5S Mini and it fared very well. There’s no doubt America’s mobile competition is fierce, and we will see if ZTE is bringing the right weapons come September 16.
