Chinese telecoms vendor ZTE is exhibiting one of the thinnest LTE devices available at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK.
ZTE is creating a stir with its latest range of devices, including its full range of Grand series handsets. Among the devices being displayed are the ZTE Grand Era, Grand Era LTE, Grand X V970(M) and Grand X LTE (T82), as well as various other devices.

The Grand Era LTE is due to launch in Europe in Q4 2012 and in the Middle East and North Africa in the first half of 2013, with plans for the Grand X V970(M) to be available in Saudi Arabia at the end of this year.

The Grand Era LTE, running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, is the newest addition to the ZTE Grand series, one of the thinnest dual-core devices on the market. The Grand Era LTE features 1.5GHz dual core CPU, 1GB of memory and a multi-touch 4.5-inch 1280x720 Gorilla Glass display on an LTE network providing a high speed network experience.
The Grand Era LTE offers 1780mAh battery life and high-speed performance. The device features LTE 100M/50M, with a 1.5Ghz Dual-core processor, high-resolution (4.5inch 1280x 720 13 megapixel camera, 1080p video record) and ZTE’s customisable Mi-favor User Interface.

This is the first time the device has been exhibited overseas.

ZTE has many customers in the Middle East and Africa and wants to continue to expand the support that it provides to governments and enterprises in these areas. There is a wave of change in the telecommunications industry, with the rapid expansion of LTE networks in different parts of the world, according to ZTE.
