ZTE asks the general public to name its new phone

ZTE Project CSX sounds like a fancy code name for a sci-fi project, like the Death Star from Star Wars or the Citadel from Mass Effect. This is probably why ZTE is looking for a better name for its new smartphone that's supposed to be unveiled at CES next year.

The new device is based on crowdsourced ideas from actual users and has quite an interesting concept, thanks to that unconventional approach. In the end, the concept that won featured an adhesive back panel, so it can be mounted on any flat surface the user desires. The new device will also utilize eye-tracking technology for hands-free use and a split-screen functionality for added security.

The name, however, doesn't quite fit the colorful design and general concept of the new phone. Therefore, ZTE is asking its users to name the sticky device by submitting name ideas on its website. Most of the suggested names seem to focus on the eye-tracking technology, more than anything else. According to ZTE's official website, the name that has the most votes at the time of writing this article is “Enki” and it's submitted by the same team that won the design contest. “Gecko” holds the second place and “HORUS” follows in third.

The contest will run until December 5 and the winner will receive a reward in the form of a $250 gift card. So, in case you have great name ideas for the next ZTE, you should consider sharing them with the Chinese company.
