ZTE launches Boost Max+ with Boost Mobile
ZTE and US carrier Boost Mobile have today launched the ZTE Boost Max+, a mid-range large-screen handset at an affordable off-contract price. The handset is the follow up to the ZTE Iconic phablet – which was rebranded to the Boost Max for Boost Mobile – but brings better specs at an impressive price tag.

The handset is 9.3mm thick and has an 8MP autofocus rear camera that records in 1080p, a single LED flash, a 1MP front facing snapper and a large 3,400 mAh battery.
The handset runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop and connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi n and integrated GPS. There’s no LTE onboard but given the original Boost Max was later followed up by the Boost Max LTE, it’s likely we’ll see an LTE variant of the Boost Max+ launched in the near future. At just $199.99 free of contract, the Boost Max+ definitely offers impressive specs for the money, especially when you consider that the one-off cost is the same as the upfront cost as many handsets on postpaid plans but doesn’t require a monthly subscription.
