ZTE looking to challenge Samsung’s smartphones with the ZTE U887
The Chinese company ZTE is aiming to target every hard hitting smartphone on the market with the release of the ZTE U887. As the leading Android enabled smartphone manufacturer, Samsung might be the source of inspiration for the up and coming company. A few days back Samsung announced a budget smartphone, with specs a bit toned down and the looks still sharp. The Samsung galaxy Grand was in the news with a moderate splash. ZTE is quick on the opportunity to announce its very own smartphone which looks like it was made specifically with Samsung Grand’s architecture in mind. The ZTE U887 will be packing the same sized display as the Galaxy Grand, which is 5 inches along with a resolution of 800×480 pixels. There will be a dual core 1.2 GHz MT6677 processor which is more or less the same as the Galaxy Grand, yet the ZTE’s smartphone will have only 512MB of RAM. The Samsung Galaxy Grand has the upper hand in the RAM department with twice the size to play around with. The rear end camera is a 5MP one on ZTE U887, another cross on the box as Galaxy Grand has an 8MP one. The front one is a 3MP snapper a one up from the Galaxy Grand’s. There is no word if the smartphone will be available outside of China. That’s not all ZTE will also unveil another cellphone dubbed ZTE Nubia Z5. The specs were posted on Weibo (a Chinese Twitter). From what we can gather the ZTE Nubia Z5 will be aiming to share the market with Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Although the Nubia Z5 is a bit smaller at 5 inches it still packs a punch. The smartphone has a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 13MP back facing camera plus a 2Mp front one and 2GB of RAM. The device will run Android Jelly Bean version 4.1.2. The 5 inched Full HD display will be powered by a 2500mAH battery. All these goodies are packed in a unibody frame of mere 7.6mm. Again there is now information whether the device will see the sun other than in China. Rumors suggest that it will be prices around $400 mark which is a very competitive price.
