ZTE N880E to relaunch with Jelly Bean installed

ZTE N880E to relaunch with Jelly Bean installed
Back in May 2012, ZTE quietly launched a Gingerbread powered handset called the ZTE N880E. There was nothing spectacular about the device as it came with a 4 inch WVGA display, 1GHz Qualcomm 7627A processor and 512MB of RAM. 4GB of internal storage was on board although that could be expanded thanks to the 32GB capacity microSD slot. A 3.2MP AF camera came on the back of the phone, and inside was a 1,650mAh battery.

Considering that the phone sold more than 1 million units, the top brass at ZTE felt that it could get an Android 4.1.1 model to market in China faster by relaunching such a popular handset like the ZTE N880E and replacing Gingerbread with Jelly Bean instead of developing a whole new model for the occasion. The only problem is that this decision didn't give ZTE the opportunity to raise the quality of the other specs on the unit.

Running stock Jelly Bean, the manufacturer says that the ZTE N880E is the first handset in China to run Jelly Bean and just the third in the world. ZTE says it will be launching more phones with Android 4.1.1 running the show, although it's not clear if the company is referring to new models or relaunched handsets like the ZTE N880E. No pricing for the Android 4.1.1 version of the ZTE N880E was disclosed.source: ZTE via Phandroid

so why can't the Droid 3 or Droid X2 get Jelly Bean then if they have better specs than this and the same amount of RAM
