ZTE may replace the Hawkeye Kickstarter campaign with an improved handset
MobileSyrup recently conducted an interview with Jeff Yee, and one of the questions the site asked was whether or not the company would cancel the current Kickstarter campaign for Hawkeye and replace it with another one. Yee responded to this question with the following -
There are a couple different ways to look at this, but from our perspective, pulling down the current Kickstarter campaign and replacing it with a handset that's an improvement over the Hawkeye's current iteration would be a step in the right direction. ZTE's current concept for the Hawkeye features an arguably bland design and ho-hum specifications, and this drastic departure from Project CSX's initial conceptualization is what's caused for a lot of disappointment in Hawkeye's current form. However, if and when we do get an improved version of the Hawkeye to replace the current Kickstarter campaign, don't expect it to be a completely new piece of hardware. At best, we'll likely see a slight increase in the phone's included processor or battery (or both). A spec bump would certainly be much appreciated, but will that be enough to finally get people interested in ZTE's Hawkeye phone and what it has to offer? Only time will tell.
