ZTE has just released a new quad-core handset in Chinese market. The new Grand Era U985 Android smartphone features a 4.5-inch HD display, scoring a 326 ppi of pixel density. The quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 chipset clocked at 1.5 GHz gives powerful processing performance. It is selling really cheap in China for US$312 (1999 yuan) without contract. Too bad the device only support TD-SCDMA, which is a proprietary 3G network for China Mobile. Grand Era U985 is primarily a China-only handset if you are using 3G radio. The recently announced Xiaomi Phone 2 may have caused the new ZTE handset to set at a lower price with high-end specification. We hope the Grand Era U985 will provide a WCDMA version at the same price point. More pictures after the break.
ZTE Grand Era U985 comes with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of built-in storage with microSD slot for storage expansion. The phone’s thickness is 8.5 mm, two cameras are fitted in, 8 megapixel on the back and 1.3 megapixel on the front.
