ZTE Quad-Core, 5.7-Inch P945 Smartphone Leaked

By - Source: Unwired View | B 22 comments

Powered by quad-core chip, accompanied by a 720p resolution.



ZTE appears to be working on its umpteenth high-end smartphone in the form of the P945.

Details and a leaked image of the P945 surfaced on the reliable Evleaks Twitter account, who has revealed official press shots for several unannounced devices in the past.

The P945 will sport a 5.7-inch 720p display, powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, as well as boasting an 8-megapixel camera and 3000 mAh battery.

Within the image, China Mobile's logo is engraved on the rear of the handset, inevitably confirming an initial China launch, which is expected to be sometime during the second quarter of 2013. A global launch of the device should be confirmed during CES.

The Chinese smartphone manufacturer, known for its low-end, budget handsets, has reiterated its investment in the U.S. market on several occasions.

ZTE recently announced the 5-inch, quad-core Zubia Z5, as well as its high-end Grand S and the 5-inch U887 smartphone.

    I'm actually a bit surprised they didn't opt for a 1080p screen, considering the size of the device.

    It's not a phone, it's a mini tablet you can use to make calls. Sorry, but even a 5" screen is starting to get too big for most people, let alone a 5.7". Mine is perfect at 4.3", but I'd be willing to go as large as 4.8". And it's not the hands that are the issue, rather the carrying around. I use a hip holster to hold my phone, but there are times I want to pocket it, which is not convenient with such a large phone.

    The Note 2 fits in my back jeans pocket just fine and that with an extended battery.

    I'm rocking a Note II as well, and IDK why people piss their pants about the size of it. I don't even have that large of hands - or wear gang banger jeans. I'm just not a complete imbecile who finds reasons to complain about a slightly larger device.

    1080p would be pointless imo, even at that size.

    I disagree. The PPI would make for incredibly sharp text and photo-realistic images. Do you not understand this?

    ^ Indeed. I am an Apple fan (yet when it comes to phones and tablets I'm an Android type of guy). Occasionally I troll. ...and, yeah, I've been known to be sarcastic now and then.

    Remind me again the PPI at which the human eye is incapable of discerning individual pixels (hence the Retina branding) and rendering any PPI higher than than a complete waste and totally nullifying your statement?

    ^ Seeing that 1280x720 on a 5.5" screen leaves individual pixels clearly visible I don't think 1920x1080 on a 5.5+" screen is gonna get us to that "Retina" point ...do you?

    Actually 1920x1080 on a 5.5" screen is 400 PPI, which is significantly higher than the 326 PPI touted by Apple on the iPhone 4 / 4S / 5
    ...
    So yes, I do think, thanks for calling my bluff before checking the facts yourself

    My bad, i'll even use the full 5.7" size rather than the ham-fisted 5.5"+ rounding down you did, still comes out at 386 PPI

    How you like them Apples (see what i did there?)

    Sorry, had to watch Looper (good movie) So...an iPhone-like display on a 5.5+" screen. ...and this would be bad because?
    Brings to mind the display quality of the Droid DNA. You may want to check that...and remind me why such would be undesirable. Personally, I'd like that quality on a 6.3" Note 3 or even a 5.5" screen. Like I said initially, it would make for sharp text and more realistic images. -

    Glad to see you edited the original post, I think the point of "Retina" or similar technologies is that beyond a certain PPI if you can't perceive the pixels them cramming more in will not improve the image because you eyes literally cannot tell the difference
    ...
    Maybe if you hold it less than the average 10 inches away for cellphones or have better than 20/20 vision (and face it, most of us don't have) then it might be useful but it's not a large market and the PPI race is the new MHz race, largely a moral victory with not much real improvement

    As long as they make the PPI ~320 or more then I'm satisfied. If they want to make the PPI 500 and do some kind of scaling because lab tests show that that may offer better image quality...I say fine, go for it. ...but in 2013 1280x800 on 5" screen in a so-called high-end device isn't cutting it for me.

    I suppose 1920x1080 can be acceptable even if you can't really see the pixels, if you also happen to have a glut of 1080p video content
    ...
    And maybe that resolution will be fine even for larger screen such as tablets or ultrabooks, until such time as 4K video becomes mainstream, because nice as it is to have it, it really is a waste unless you have media to match (and for those that say you play games at more than 1080p, of course you do, on a PC with a monitor around 27"+, not a phone or a tablet)
