A second ZTE handset has just landed on Virgin Mobile. The device is called Supreme and is Virgin Mobile’s latest addition to the portfolio of Android smartphones, right next to the ZTE Awe which debuted earlier this week. The Supreme is up for grabs from the carrier’s online store only and can be yours for $299.99. Being a prepaid carrier, Virgin Mobile does not require any contracts with the purchase of a phone. The Supreme can be paired with one of Virgin Mobile’s Beyond Talk plans which start at a low $35 per month.

In comparison with the ZTE Awe, which Virgin Mobile started offering a couple of days ago, the Supreme is much closer to a high-end device in smartphones hierarchy. The phone features a 5-inch LCD display with a 1280 x 720 resolution and break-resistant glass. The handset is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and offers 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory expandable up to 64 GB via microSD slot.
The Supreme is equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera capable of recording 1080p HD video. There is also a 1-megapixel user-facing camera for video chatting. The phone supports LTE connectivity and comes with integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. The handset runs mostly untouched Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, which is a huge advantage.
The Supreme is marketed as media phone and ships pre-loaded with EA Mobile’s Real Racing 3. According to Virgin Mobile, the device’s 2,500 mAh battery should deliver up to 15 hours of talk time and up to 11.25 days of standby time.
