ZTE prepping a Windows Phone that could make the Galaxy Note 2 look small

The details remain light, however ZTE has recently begun teasing an oversized Windows Phone smartphone. And by oversized, this one could make the Galaxy Note seem on the smaller side. The ZTE Windows Phone is said to have a 5.9-inch display.
November 7, 2012

ZTE recently mentioned that they planned to sell 50 million smartphones in 2013. And while ZTE will probably see a fair amount of sales with Android smartphones, with a goal of 50 million — it may be good to spread the wings a little bit. After all, not everyone wants an Android smartphone. We suspect many of the readers may feel otherwise, but there are some other mobile operating systems that are really nice. One of those, despite not being all that popular, is Windows Phone.

Enter this recently posted image of a ZTE branded Windows Phone smartphone. The image was posted by Lu Qian Hao, who is a marketing chief with ZTE. The image of the phone did arrive with some details, however those same details may have brought some not so good news. You see, the handset is said to be sporting a 5.9-inch (1920 x 1080) Full HD display. This brings the question, Windows Phone 8 does not yet support Full HD displays which means that this handset is most likely running Windows Phone 7. Not to mention, that is a Windows Phone 7 logo on the bottom.

Otherwise, the only other detail given was that the handset will be equipped with DTS audio technology. So there you have it, a Windows Phone device that could challenge the size of the Galaxy Note. The question remains though, is this the real deal or simply a teaser. Otherwise, while the initial reaction would be to poke fun at the size of the display, remember people once did that with the Galaxy Note and look at how well that sold.
