The ZTE BA602 has been outed with a fingerprint sensor, 3GB of RAM, and more

We're quickly nearing the end of January, and although 2017 is still in its infancy, ZTE has already been off to a fairly solid start. The company had quite a bit to talk about at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, including the unveiling of the ZTE Blade V8 Pro and the announcement that Project CSX (also dubbed as Hawkeye) has officially made its way to the crowdfunding stage for a release later this fall. Following those two handsets, a recent sighting from the TENAA (China's version of the FCC here in the States) has revealed that yet another ZTE-branded handset is currently in the works.

The new device is simply known as the ZTE BA602, and although it isn't a particularly exciting smartphone, it does look like it could be a fair choice for budget-minded consumers. The front of the BA602 is home to a 5.5-inch display with a reported resolution of standard HD (1280 x 720). Powering the phone is an unnamed quad-core processor that's clocked at 1.25GHz, and the three available RAM configurations include 1GB, 2GB, and 3GB. Also featured here are three storage options (8GB, 16GB, and 32GB), a 3,000 mAh battery, an 8MP rear-facing camera, and a 2MP shooter on the front.

ZTE's BA602 measures in at 153.3 x 77 x 8.6-millimeters, and the device appears to be made out of plastic. Available color options include Quicksand Gold, Galaxy Silver, Phantom Gray, Quiet Blue, and Black, and the rear of the device is home to what appears to be a fingerprint sensor. It's quite likely that the device will be released in China seeing as how the phone was spotted via the TENAA, but there's no official mention as to how much the BA602 will cost or what other countries it will launch in.

1 GB RAM in 2017 is horrible. The only thing you can do with that is text and maybe few light apps. The OS alone consumes almost a GB.

"The only thing you can do with that is text and maybe few light apps" there are lots of peoples getting smartphone to do just exactly that... just look at it's other specs quad-core 1.25GHz (it's even slower than the ancient SD410), 8GB storage, 8MP camera, 720p.. most likely, this phone will be priced under $120.. and people won't expect much thing from smartphone at that price
