Description

The ZTE Obsidian sports a 4.5-inch panel running at an unusual resolution of 480 by 854 pixels and a PPI of 224. Under the hood beats the heart of a MediaTek MT6735M chipset, an entry-level offering that features a 1.GHz quad-core CPU. In the memory department, the ZTE Obsidian comes with 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage, which you can expand using a microSD card. Other specs include a 5MP primary camera, a 2MP secondary shooter on the front, as well 4G LTE connectivity -- a most-welcomed addition given the low price of the Obsidian. All of this hardware will be powered by a 1980 mAh battery. On the software side, the phone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop.
