Renders show the Virgin Mobile branded ZTE Chaser and ZTE Venture - both Android powered3
Starting with the ZTE Chaser, it seems to be nothing more than a rebranded ZTE X500, which is hardly considered a power packed device. Instead, the candybar smartphone features a 3.5” display, 3.2-megapixel camera, and a behind the times 600MHz processor. Needless to say, it’s far from being the most cutting edge thing on the block, but if they’re able to bring it to market at a competitive price point, it might possibly win over some people.
ZTE Venture might appeal to your needs more thanks to its portrait style physical keyboard. Besides that one distinguishable item, there’s not a whole lot separating it from the Chaser in terms of specs seeing it boasts the same things. However, it packs a 2.8” display instead seeing that the keyboard takes up a good amount of space.
It’s evidently clear that ZTE is trying its best to establish a presence, but we’d gather it to be a good idea to tackle the prepaid market first before venturing out to the big leagues with the postpaid carriers. Still, there’s no exact timeline on when these two devices will come to market – so now we play the waiting game.
