Here’s a good news for all consumers. ZTE just launched the cheapest quad-core phone named ZTE U950. It packs a 1.3GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor pairs with 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory, a 5.0 MP rear shooter (support 1080p video recording), a 0.3 megapixel front-facing cam, a 2,000 mAh battery and Android 4.0 ICS. But the down side is, it only comes with a 4.3-inch display with 800×480 resolution. Check out more info after the break.
ZTE U950 is made by a third-tier smartphone manufacturer called “Beidou xiao lajiao (北斗小辣椒)”. Beidou first gained popularity by selling a 699 yuan (US$113) dual-core phone, which had already sold out 100,000 units. In the meanwhile, the company also planned to launch a 999 yuan (US$160) quad-core phone and seems like that’s ZTE U950. If you’re interested in ZTE U950, pre-order starts today in China. Those who register now will be eligible to order on 11 Nov and the phone will ship on the 15th Nov. ZTE does not have any plan to sell the smartphone outside China.
Huawei also launched a budget-friendly quad-core phone in Beijing Yesterday — the $305Huawei Honor II. Originally, we thought Huawei Honor II would be the cheapest quad-core phone of this year, but apparently now ZTE U950 has stolen the title. But noted, Huawei Honor II has far better hardwares and good Android customization. Check out our review on Huawei Honor II here.
