Collaborating with China Telecom, ZTE has launched the 4G LTE version of its Qing Yang 2 smartphone at a price of Rs 1,599.
The Qing Yang 2 is powered by the energy-efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8926 1.2GHz processor, adding support for FDD-LTE and TDD-LTE 4G networks. This enables the smartphone to deliver data transmission rates of up to 150Mbps.
With the expanded 2GB of RAM memory, the new Qing Yang 2 enables users to run multiple applications with aplomb.
Apart from providing higher-quality 1280×720 displays, the 5-inch high-resolution IPS touch-screen on the new Qing Yang 2 allows users to make calls, switch on the camera, play music and perform other functions by simple finger control even when the phone is in screen-lock mode.
Designed for younger users with energetic lifestyles, the smartphone comes with an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front camera, allowing users to improvise with a wide selection of visual effects enabled by ZTE’s proprietary photography technology.
The smartphone supports more than 10 advanced photography features including 88° wide-angled shooting, intelligent tracking and 4cm macro-shooting.
“The new Qing Yang 2 will help drive the growth of the 4G market in China. ZTE’s commitment to technology innovation, global scale, and our breath of capabilities will help our partners address the market opportunity in 4G,” said Adam Zeng, CEO, ZTE Mobile Devices.
The device retains the sleek ergonomic style of the previous version, designed for users to hold comfortably in their hands. The previous Qing Yang 2 registered more than 2 million pre-orders in the first seven days after it was launched earlier this year.
Qing Yang 2 is pre-installed with Xiang Gan Ma, a landmark for ZTE in terms of software application development. The new app will provide users with personalized suggestions of trending topics and applications, bringing an intuitive and intelligent user experience to consumers.
The smartphone will also allow users to access multiple global-positioning system (GPS) technologies including GPSS and Glonass, giving consumers greater versatility and performance.
