New ZTE budget handset launches in China with 4000mAh battery, priced under $100 USD
Earlier this month, ZTE unveiled a low priced handset that costs the equivalent of $144. Despite the light price tag, the ZTE Xiao Xian 2 features a fingerprint scanner. Now, the manufacturer has another entry-level model that has been unwrapped in China. The ZTE Q519T might not roll with a fingerprint scanner, but it does feature a 4000mAh battery that promises 35 days of standby time. The phone also comes with three battery saving modes and OTG reverse charging technology.

Priced at the equivalent of $95 USD, the ZTE Q519T comes to the table with a 5-inch, 720 x 1280 resolution screen. The MediaTek MT6735 SoC is under the hood and contains a quad-core 1GHz CPU and the Mali T720MP1 GPU. 1GB of RAM is aboard along with 8GB of native storage. Those requiring additional memory can use the 32GB capacity microSD slot. A 5MP rear camera comes with an aperture of f/2.0 for quality photos in low-light conditions. A 2MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats.

Besides support for dual SIM capabilities, the phone provides 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, and USB 2.0 connectivity. The model will be available in blue, gold or white and Android 5.0 is pre-installed. ZTE hasn't yet said whether the Q519T will be available outside of China.

Thanks for the tip!

Funny how at $95, you're complaining about the UI. Slap Nova on it and call it a day or if the free version doesn't cut it got you and you don't want to purchase prime, the free version of Apex will surely do the trick. . . . Strange how Chinese OEMs shun out lower low-end smartphones with appealing designs that will beat most Sammy midrangers aesthetically. It baffles me. Take a look at the hugely fugly galaxy neo prime plus or whatever gibberish they call it.

Idk how ZTE can price this phone so cheap. I would think the components cost about the same price as the phone

Don't know how much that chip with 1gb ram can handle little to none multitasking. But I can't use a phone just for WhatsApp or viber or line or Skype. Want to use these all so 1gb ain't sufficient. It should've been 2gb ram.

Be mindful on the claims of battery Mah specs. Almost all Chinese made battery products really stretttttccchhh the truth. Mate 7, almost all of ZTE products..
