By - Source: Engadget | B 5 comments

Powered by quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC running at 1.7GHz.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer ZTE has announced another smartphone in the form of the quad-core Grand Memo, reports Engadget.

Alongside a 720p 4.7-inch screen that offers a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels, it's powered by a quad-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro system-on-chip, as well as 2 GB of RAM.

A 13-megapixel camera is situated on the device's rear, with an unspecified version of Android being the device's mobile operating system of choice. A T9 keyboard made for single-handed use has been incorporated as well, accompanied by microSD support and a 3,000mAh battery.

Pricing and availability details have yet to be announced, but it'll receive its official debut during the Mobile World Congress in late February. Elsewhere, ZTEĀ lately announced the low-cost, Android-powered Blade C smartphone.

    It's nice to see companies using bigger batteries. 3,000mAh should be the bare minimum if they are going to flaunt off their quad core/HD resolution design.

    13MP Cam. So many MP's but how about the picture quality. Maybe investing on a better lens with lower MP could be cheaper.

    It's not the lens that's the problem, it's the size of the image sensor. The ability to capture light and translate it to color can be directly correlated to the size of the image sensor. Bigger is better. This is why most cell phones look washed out.

    I don't think people would mind a little extra bulge on the back of their phone, a nice quarter size camera/lens would be nice, instead of a little pinhole size camera.

    This phone would be perfect if it supports 1080p resolution on the screen.
