ZTE Grand X launches in the UK with a focus on mobile gaming thanks to its Tegra 2 CPU
Right on schedule, ZTE announced the availability of its most advanced gaming smartphones for the UK – the ZTE Grand X. Yes folks, it’s quite a grand entrance considering that the handset is primarily being targeted to those who have an affinity for hardcore mobile gaming.

Available through Phones4u and Virgin Media in the UK, the ZTE Grand X is undoubtedly a high-end Android powered smartphone running Ice Cream Sandwich. Some of its main standout features include a 4.3” qHD (960 x 540) display, dual-core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 5-megapixel rear camera, and a front-facing VGA 0.3-megapixel snapper.

Seeing that it’s being powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, it’s especially going to give gamers a fast, smooth, and responsive experience – while giving them access to some great gaming content as well . Additionally, it packs cinematic-surround Dolby Mobile sound technology to complement its amazing video watching experience courtesy of its sharp display.

In terms of pricing, it’ll vary according to each carrier and mobile plan offering. However, as we all know, being a ZTE made device has its ties to being something affordable on any budget – and this doesn’t disappoint in that aspect! Specifically, the ZTE Grand X will be available for $295 (£189) in pre-paid form and for free on £24-£27 per month contracts.

no hardware keys like the Play? Tegra 2? get the nexus 7, same price, better processor, better/larger screen, which i think will make gaming experience better than a 4.3", while retaining the same exclusive Nvidia Tegra games privileges.. I really thought the Gaming phone will be something really extraordinary, but this is mediocre mid-range phone at best..

This is definitely an ironic post PA. If is not, the writer must live in a bubble without access to coworkers and internet. This phone is, spec wise, almost exactly to what I have held on my hand for more than a year. BS article

Its supposed to be a "BS article". They are clearly taking the piss out of ZTE who over hyped the phone. Ever heard of sarcasm?

Uuuuh how is this a gaming phone? Unless it has some major software that enhances the gaming experience. They either forgetting to mention some amazing gaming set up like being able to use the sony game market from the psvita (don't care if i spelled it wrong) or the microsoft arcade market was mysteriously integrated with this phone. I am kind of thinking this is an ad like squallz506 said or they are extremely sarcastic when writing this Either way I am confused.
