ZTE Grand Memo
The ZTE Grand Memo comes with a very huge touchscreen which measures 5.7 inches. The device lets you down as it only offers 720p screen resolution. However, it does come with a decent 258ppi pixel density.
The ZTE Grand Memo is powered with Snapdragon 600 chipset which delivers a speed of 1.5GHz. The onboard Adreno 320GPU makes the phablet perform very smoothly. The device measures only 8.5mm in thickness. Thanks to the big-sized body, the manufacturers were able to offer a decent 3,200mAh battery.
A 13MP camera is located at the rear of Grand Memo which is capable of producing 1080p quality videos at 30fps. At the front there is 1MP camera which is decent enough for video-calling.
Some of the other features of the ZTE Grand Memo include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, aGPS, USB MHL port and Android 4.1 OS. The phablet device from ZTE is all set to compete with the likes of Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Grand from Samsung, the new Micromax Canvas HD and many others.
The other device that was unveiled at the MWC 2013 from ZTE is ZTE Open which is powered by the all new Firefox OS. It is an entry-level phone with 1GHz CPU and 3.5inch HVGA touchscreen display.
