ZTE to launch a 5.9-inch Windows Phone 8 handset
A ZTE executive has posted an image of what could be the company’s upcoming Windows Phone 8 device that sports a massive 5.9-inch full HD display.
ZTE’s head of market strategy, Lu Qian Hao, recently posted an image on Weibo (China’s version of Twitter) of a new Windows Phone 8 smartphone that will be carrying a 5.9-inch full HD (1920×1080) screen. That kind of resolution calculates to a pixel density of 373 ppi. He also stated that it will be a flagship device and will come equipped with DTS audio technology.
Impressive as it may seem, it is also worth noting that Windows Phone 8 does not support display resolutions above 720p. Although some sources claim that it can handle 1080p by doing some adjustments in the WP8 kernel. So for now, let’s take this with a grain of salt.
So far no further details have surfaced but rumors are circulating that it’s going to be called the ZTE Blade 8.
