ZTE is keeping their promise of more handsets in 2012, with a press release stating the company will reveal eight new devices at MWC 2012 next week. While we can’t be too excited about the possibility of eight new Windows Phones – The Android platform will be included among the eight devices – we remain faithful that ZTE will produce great results. ZTE states these eight new devices (based on Android and Windows Phone) will bring “significant advances in power, high definition multimedia capabilities and design. Based on technology innovations including multi-core chipsets, LTE, 4G radio and the latest Android and Windows Mobile platforms, the new devices form a core component of ZTE’s ambition to become a top three handset provider by 2015.”
“There is no doubt that this year’s Mobile World Congress will again see some exciting device launches. The new devices from ZTE will demonstrate how ZTE is without doubt among an elite group of handset providers as next generation telecommunications networks roll out globally. ZTE returns at least ten percent of its revenues back into R&D to ensure that it sustains its position as a true market innovator – and we’re counting down to being able to showcase this to the world’s mobile industry next week,” said Mr. He Shiyou, Executive Vice President and Head of the Terminals Division at ZTE.
ZTE will reveal all eight devices during their press conference at MWC 2012 on February 27, 2012 at 10:30 CET (it seems it will take place right after the Nokia press conference), and will also be on display post-conference.
