Qualcomm: ZTE Grand Memo has Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 under the hood, not an 800
Engadget and GSM Arena, telling both that the ZTE Grand Memo actually has the Snapdragon 600 under the hood. Despite this, ZTE has not bothered to change the press release, which still touts the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 as the processor powering the Grand Memo. Qualcomm itself has announced that the ZTE Grand Memo is not running the Snapdragon 800, but is powered by the Snapdragon 600 instead.
Additionally, according to Android Police, the ZTE Grand Memo units at ZTE's booth at MWC are actually powered by Qualcomm's older Snapdragon Pro S4 APQ864 processor. And instead of the 2GB of RAM that ZTE claims that its phone carries, the truth is that there is just 1GB of RAM on the device.
Would ZTE, a company that is just beginning to gain relevancy in the global smartphone market hurt its reputation by doing something like this on purpose? For now, we will give ZTE the benefit of the doubt although we're pretty sure that not everyone is being so forgiving. And perhaps the only reason why this is so important is that the NVIDIA Tegra 4 out performed the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 in benchmark tests leaving Qualcomm to basically say that the 800 is their top-shelf product.
