It seems that ZTE is desperately trying to draw attention to its products, or at least one of them. This is not the first time a company is doing this, but in most cases the manufacturer intents to advertise a very special feature or the device’s unusual parameters. So what do you do when your phone is just average? You can play with its name. And this is exactly what the Chinese phone maker did. One of its recently announced smartphone is called Iconic Phablet.
ZTE Iconic Phablet
Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Phablet phablet, which by the way is not as iconic as ZTE claims. Actually, the Iconic Phablet is a mid-ranger at the most. But let’s not complain too much. The device is clearly aimed at less demanding customers so it should be pretty affordable, and with appropriate pricing we could forgive the weird name. By the way, pricing and availability is yet to be announced.
Back to the Phablet, it sports a 5.7-inch display with 720p resolution and is powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. There is 1 GB of RAM on board along with 8 GB of internal storage, hopefully expandable, though ZTE failed to comment on this particular detail. The device is equipped with an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 1-megapixel shooter located on the front. It also offers wireless charging.
Connectivity features include Bluetooth 4.0+LE, LTE, CDMA and EVDO support. The Iconic Phablet runs more or less stock Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and should work just fine with almost any third-party app you can think off. The whole package is powered by a 3,200 mAh battery.
