ZTE’s first Canadian smartphone is now available at Bell and Virgin for $149.95 outright and $0 on a 2-year contract.
Another Chinese manufacturer trying to find success in the Canadian market, ZTE joins Huawei and Alcatel OneTouch as challengers to the big Korean and Japanese Android names like Samsung, LG and Sony. The Grand X is by no means a powerful device, but its price is certainly going to attract customers looking at an entry-level smartphone. Indeed, the Android 4.3-based device is cheaper than the Moto G and Moto E.
With a 5-inch 1280×720 pixel display, a 1.2Ghz quad-core MediaTek processor, 1GB of RAM, 1.3GB of internal storage with microSD slot, a 5MP camera, 2,400mAh, HSPA+ 21Mbps connectivity, and stock Android 4.3, the Grand X is an interesting addition to Bell’s lineup.
Last year, ZTE released its first connected tablet with Rogers.
