ZTE Mobile launches ZTE Skate smartphone

ZTE Mobile today launched 6 new handsets in the Philippines with the ZTE Skate as its flagship Android smartphone.

We first saw the ZTE Skate in June 2011 during CommunicAsia in Singapore. Back then, it was only running Froyo and clocked at 800MHz.

The model they are releasing in the Philippines is running a SnapDragon S2 1.0GHz processor and updated to Gingerbread. ZTE execs tell us the ICS update will come out soon.


ZTE Mobile is positioning the Skate as the most affordable 4.3-inch handset in the market.

ZTE Skate specs:
4.3″ display @ 480×800 pixels
Qualcomm SnapDragon S2 1.0GHz processor
up to 32GB via microSD (4GB pre-installed)
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 2.1
GPS w/ aGPS support
5MP autofocus camera with dual-LED flash
Li-Ion battery 1400mAh
Android 2.3 Gingerbread

Suggested retail price of the ZTE Skate is Php13,990. More on the other handsets and their new tablet in a bit.

    Pretty decent for its price. The battery would be the least desirable spec on this phone. That 4.3 inch display will need a lot of juice.

    pros: 4.3″ screen

    cons: low resolution for a 4.3″
    low-capacity battery
    expensive for its low specs
