Handset manufacturer ZTE announced that it has launched the ZTE Grand Memo 5.7-inch handset running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processors.
According to a release, the ZTE Grand Memo offers the ideal balance between the portability of a handset and the larger viewing and easier touch-interaction experience of a tablet. It features a 5.7-inch, high definition, 720 x 1280 display, and a Qualcomm 800 processor with quad-core Krait CPUs and 2GB of RAM. Combined with a 13MP rear-facing camera, 1MP front-facing camera and 1080 HD video playback, this gives users a smooth, multimedia experience that is perfect for gaming and video.
The Grand Memo caters to those who are always on-the-go, with voice-response technology which allows users to answer calls safely while driving, and A-GPS and car-mode navigation system for mapping and directions. It comes with a HD version of ZTE's Mifavor user interface that is specially designed for smartphones, providing a simpler user experience, and ZTE's Z Cloud service for the security and access-anywhere provided by cloud services. It also includes a 3200mAh battery for super-long standby time.
"The ZTE Grand Memo's large, high definition screen makes it perfect for media and entertainment, but its uses reach far beyond that," said He Shiyou, ZTE EVP and Head of the Mobile Devices Division. "With ZTE's custom Mifavor UI, a powerful processor, and LTE connectivity, this device offers users a wide array of benefits that go well beyond the capabilities of the typical handset."
The company noted that Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processors target mobile and computing devices. They are designed to deliver outstanding overall user experience, expand the possibilities of seamless connected computing and enable brand new mobile experiences while maintaining battery performance.
"Qualcomm Snapdragon platforms are at the heart of over 770 announced smartphones and tablets, and we are thrilled to work with ZTE to bring the Grand Memo to consumers," said Raj Talluri, senior vice president of product management at Qualcomm Technologies.
"We have really tried to make this device fun for use at home, and practical for use in the office. By combining both of these factors, we have created a well-rounded large-screen handset that is suitable for any situation. It's perfect for videos, gaming and music, and also for sending e-mails, checking news and making calls on the go. For those with a busy lifestyle, the ZTE Grand Memo will be indispensable," said He Shiyou, ZTE.
