One of the biggest Chinese electronic makers, ZTE, held a press conference earlier today in Beijing. An event like this usually means that a new device has just gone official. Such was the case this time too, except it wasn’t one phone that was unveiled but two stylish smartphones have been announced to the world. Called ZTE Nubia Z9 Max and Nubia Z9 Mini, both handsets go official featuring excellent set of specifications combined together with affordable price tag.
While focusing mostly on mid-range and affordable devices, the ZTE doesn’t forget about its premium lineup. Every sign in the sky suggests that the top-end ZTE’s Nubia family will soon gain another member. The Chinese company has already confirmed launch of the Nubia Z9 on March 26th and right now the smartphone has been spotted in the AnTuTu database confirming some of the discussed earlier tech parameters.
Logic would suggest that the more advanced device you are using, the more secure your data is. Well, that’s not exactly true. In fact, the more sophisticated a device is, the more opportunities a hacker has to gain control over that device. PINs and passwords are no longer considered safe measures so many manufacturers turn to more futuristic solutions that is biometric data verification such as fingerprint scanners. ZTE went a step further and introduced the Grand S3 that can be unlocked with your Eyeprint.
Only a couple of days ago ZTE unveiled the Blade S6 and now another member of the Blade family went official. The Chinese company just announced a pretty low-end Blade L3 phone for the budget shopper. And guess what? The ZTE Blade L3, just like its more advanced sibling, also will ship with Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
ZTE Blade S6 brings together solid mid-range specs with Android 5.0 Lollipop for $250 without contract
Affordable phone sector is rapidly gaining on popularity since most people still value the money they spent on electronic gadgets. No wonder then that there are more and more newly released phones offering better specs at lower price. Today, Chinese ZTE has just announced one of the best mid-range smartphones. Featuring solid mid-range specifications combined with the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop, the ZTE Blade S6 is said to be a great proposition for all money savers. Costing as little as $250 contract-free the phone has great chances to conquer budget sector gaining the masses of users.
Long gone are the times when all phones were more or less the same size. Now you can find handsets in all sizes, the average measuring 5 inches diagonally. Objectively speaking, a 5-inch phone is a pretty big device. However, as the tendency to make things bigger continues, many users look for even larger phones. With such users in mind, the 6-inch ZTE Grand X Max+ was made. The phablet is now available for purchase from Cricket Wireless priced at $199.99 with no annual contract.
Boost Mobile has just announced the ZTE Speed joining their prepaid smartphones lineup. The mentioned handset is a new Android-based smartphone sporting a 4.6-inch display, 5-megapixel camera and 4G LTE connectivity. Belonging to mid-range league the Speed comes with quite affordable price tag and can be yours for $99 without long-term contract. So far, the phone is available exclusively as the prepaid carrier’s online offer, but it is scheduled to hit the Boost Mobile retailer stores in January 2015.
At the beginning of August Cricket Wireless launched the big and affordable ZTE Grand X Android smartphone. Objectively speaking, the Grand X is a large device; however, if those 5-inches are not enough to keep you entertained and your fingers yearn for more room to tap and swipe, you can get your wish very soon. The new 6-inch ZTE Grand X Max phablet is coming to budget carrier Cricket Wireless on October 10th.
Despite some criticism, demand for large phones is still very strong. Smartphone makers are well aware of that and go out of their way to meet the needs. There’s just one little problem with phablets – the vast majority are of flagship class and thus priced accordingly. So what about those who can’t afford to pay $600 or more for a device with large display? No worries. With such users in mind, ZTE and T-Mobile introduced ZMAX, a big phone with huge battery and impressive small price tag.
It wasn’t that long ago that ZTE opened its first store in our motherland and the move was followed by a promise that the company would bring more phones to US customers.

Back-to-school promotions are popping up like mushrooms across carriers and retailers who use this powerful tool to woo potential customers to buy a new phone. If indeed you need one but your budget won’t allow you to go crazy with high-end specification, Cricket Wireless might have something you will like. The ZTE Grand X has just been added to the portfolio and is now available in carrier’s store and online. The phone costs just $99 with a $50 mail-in rebate and obviously doesn’t require a contract.

Three days ago first snaps showing the new T-Mobile connected phablet leaked out. But until now, the device’s look and design was something of an enigma, since the leaks didn’t’ say a word on the specs and design, they just announced new device being added to the T-Mobile’s offer. Today we can say more about the device since some of its specification details come to the light. The leaks report that ZTE’s phablet, nick-named “Olympia”, appears to be mid-range device.

One of such lineups is the Nubia series which just gained three new members after ZTE unveiled Nubia Z7, Nubia Z7 Max and Nubia Z7 Mini.

The HTC One M8 is going to be on everyone’s mind for the next few days, at least on our side of the globe. Users in China, however, have one more reason to feel happy. On the same day that the One was being officially introduced to the world, ZTE announced its latest phablet – the ZTE Nubia X6. With a 6.44-inch display the device is almost as big as a small tablet and packs an amazing duo of 13-megapixel cameras on both back and front panel.
ZTE has pretty rich history of giving their phones weird names. Remember the Iconic Phablet announced at CES two months ago? The device received a lot of harsh words not because of its specs but rather due to its ‘iconic’ name. However, it seems that the company didn’t learn much and is about to repeat the same mistake again with its upcoming curved phone called ZTE Grand S EXT. Well, you have to admit that the name doesn’t sound quite right.
