ZTE may be known for pushing out cheap and cheerful Android handsets, but that doesn’t mean it can’t push out a high end one occasionally either. They promised it in the past, and now they’re keen to deliver at MWC.
The ZTE Era has a 4.3-inch display with a qHD (960×540) resolution, but more impressivly features an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3Ghz. That’s backed up by 1GB of RAM and an 8 megapixel camera, all fitting into a slender 7.8mm frame. 8GB of storage comes standard, and you’ll be able to expand that via microSD. The handset will also be running Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, and has a couple of welcome features such as MHL, HD Voice, and DLNA.
ZTE say they’re looking to launch the handset in the second half of 2012 in Europe and China, although mum’s the word on pricing right now.
