Until now, even if you were a proud user of an LTE smartphone in China, it does not mean that you could enjoy super fast LTE speed even if in area it was available. And that is because there are two different types of LTE in China, known as FDD and TD, and the handset supports either one or another. ZTE might have just bridged the gap with its latest product, a dual-mode LTE phone – Grand Era LTE which is compatible with both formats. You still have to reboot the device to connect to another network, but definitely it is a big improvement.
Apart from this innovative technology, the ZTE Grad Era, slim and light in design, is an interesting phone in itself. It features a 4.5-inch touch screen with a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution protected by Gorilla Glass to prevent scrapes and scratches, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM and an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash.
The phone is shipped running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Mifavor user interface on top of it. The phone comes with a 1780 mAh battery, which may not sound too impressive, but according to what folks at Engadget Chinese discovered in a hands-on, the power consumption is less on it as compared to other LTE smartphones.
