ZTE Grand X coasts to the FCC, T-Mobile launch imminent

ZTE is supposed to make a big splash at CES this coming January, but it seems we’re getting info on all its goods well in advance. One device that might make an appearance at the trade show is the ZTE Grand X, and it looks like it has made it to the FCC right on time for that to be able to happen.

The FCC filing reveals an awful lot about where this device is looking to go. T-Mobile’s logo is plastered on the back of it so we can pretty much put a check mark in the “magenta” column. This 4.3 inch device will look to fill a spot on the “cheap” end of T-Mobile’s lineup as this package comes with some modest specs.

A 1GHz dual-core MediaTek processor sits inside to power Android along, a 5 megapixel shooter will take care of your stills, and HSPA+ looks to be available for your downloading pleasure. We’d expect ZTE customization on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, but things could easily change by the time the device launches.

The device certainly isn’t the looker that the ZTE Nubia Z5 turned out to be, but if you need an affordable smartphone to carry you into the new year this one might be worth keeping an eye on. Check out the full listing over at the FCC.

    ZTE I think will be a big player soon, they are now, but thinking they’ll show up HTC soon. And I’m a huge HTC Fan, actually I’m a smartphone, tablet, computer, freak. Mainly Android but Windows, IOS, gets me excited too. It’s all technology that makes me happy, I use to be a fanboy of certain brands but I learned all technology is great technology, no matter who makes it or what OS is has on it. But to date I still prefer HTC for my needs on a phone, and Samsung on tablet.
