The ZTE Grand X

The ZTE Grand X has already been launched in other regions of the globe. But a version for T-Mobile in the U.S. is apparently on the way based on photos taken for the handset's visit with the FCC. Right on the rear cover of the device, the T-Mobile branding is clearly visible. The specs are certainly mid-range starting with the 4.3 inch qHD display which has a pixel density of 256ppi. A dual-core 1.2GHz processor is driving the device which has 1GB of RAM, a 5MP camera on back and a VGA shooter up front. The 1650mAh battery keeps the lights on and Android 4.0 is installed on the unit.

Pricing is unknown and T-Mobile has yet to offer a launch date for the phone. When it was released in the U.K. this past summer, it was priced at the equivalent of $295. One feature that we hope makes the U.S. version of the phone is the Dolby Mobile sound technology. For those who keep score at home, the ZTE Grand X will be known as the V970T.

What is the point of any midrange device? For the carrier to sell for cheap or free and attract customers who want to save $200-$300 on a phone, but still want decent features.

I really am a fan of just selling last years high end device as this years mid range and next years low end. Support will remain high, prices will go down with inventory, and new phones will have to offer something more.
