ZTE has just announced the new Concord II smartphone for both T-Mobile and MetroPCS, a mid-range smartphone that is available for $0 on a two-year contract with T-Mobile. The ZTE Concord II features a close-to-stock version of Android, too.
Moving onto specs, the ZTE Concord II features a 4-inch WVGA (800x480) display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1820mAh battery, 4GB of internal flash memory which is expandable up to 32GB through microSD. We have Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on-board, so not the latest version of Android, but at least it is closer to stock than most other handsets.
Lixin Cheng, Chairman and CEO of ZTE USA says: "The Concord II from ZTE offers that ideal combination of functionality and affordable pricing so consumers can stay connected with family and friends on a sleek device within their budget. With the arrival of the all-new Concord II at T-Mobile and MetroPCS, ZTE is able to continue our mission of giving consumers a range of choices through a wide variety of smartphone devices".
