ZTE announces the Blade C smartphone: Jelly Bean for the masses

Today is a good day for ZTE, as the company has announced not one, but two new devices. The first one we reported about was the V81 tablet, and now we'll tell you about the second - the Blade C smartphone.

Undoubtedly a budget smartphone, we hope that this generic-looking handset will still be capable of providing a satisfying user experience. After all, it'll come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean right out of the box! Specs-wise, the ZTE Blade C will treat you to a 4" WVGA display, 3MP camera, 1GHz dual-core MediaTek MTK 6577 processor, 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal memory. All in all, typical upper-low-end stuff.

According to UnwiredView, the handset is already available in China, where it retails for the super-affordable off-contract price of $112. It isn't known yet when the device is going to come to Europe, but when it does, we hope it'll retain a similarly low price.

Why can't they just use Android 4.2? Is that so hard?
