ZTE already dropped a bit of a teaser in terms of what can be expected during CES, however it looks like another handset has surfaced. This latest is called the ZTE Blade G LTE and judging from the pictures included in the FCC filing — this one will be heading towards AT&T. We obviously need an official announcement for the compete picture, however the filing did include the user manual which gave some of the basics.
The details revealed from the FCC filing include the handset having a microSD card slot, 2070 mAh battery and 5 megapixel camera on the back. There will also be WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0. There wasn’t any mention of which version of Android, however speculation suggests it will arrive with Jelly Bean.
As suggested by the name — the handset will also have support for the AT&T LTE network. Otherwise, some of the finer points such as display size, processor and internal storage remain a mystery. As seen in the pictures, the handset is your basic touchscreen Android handset with the three capacitive navigation buttons along the bottom. The backside has the camera and flash sitting centered towards the top and what appears to be a speaker towards the bottom.
Aside from the Blade G LTE, ZTE recently teased how they were planning to unveil a “wide array” of devices during CES. This includes smartphones and tablets along with hotspots, phablets and other devices, which we learned meant a smartwatch. The ZTE smartwatch is going to be called the Blue Watch and from the description, it appears like it will be a cross between a smartwatch and activity tracker.
The ZTE phablet will bring a 5.7-inch display as well as wireless charging, Gorilla Glass and Dolby Digital Sound. Otherwise, without mentioning this Blade G LTE, there was mention of some AT&T devices. That said, we will be keeping an eye on ZTE as we move through CES 2014.
