Telecom Lead Asia: ZTE
has tied up with China Mobile to launch its LTE phone in Hong Kong.

The Grand X LTE (T82) is the company’s first single-chip LTE
smartphone equipped with a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU, which is based on 28nm
technology.

Sean Lee, director and chief executive officer of China
Mobile Hong Kong, said through this partnership, China Mobile will be able to
enrich its product portfolio.

ZTE claims the single-chip model is faster and energy
efficient.

The LTE phone showcases a 4.3-inch qHD screen to offer HD
quality visual experience.

The device has an 8 mega pixel rear camera that supports
1080p HD video shooting and playback. The camera module with enhanced flash
light captures the sharpest images day and night. Its front camera supports
720p HD video calls.

The Grand X LTE (T82) is Wi-Fi capable and uses Android 4.0.
The maximum download rate of 100M plus the robust configuration of the product
allows users to download over 600,000 Android applications and enjoy a brand
new mobile experience. The Grand X LTE (T82) also has a unique buttonless
design resembling a mini tablet PC.

ZTE will roll out the product in Asia Pacific in the third
quarter 2012.

He Shiyou, executive vice president and head of Terminal
Division of ZTE, said ZTE continues its leadership in 4G with the launch of the
Grand X LTE (T82).

ZTE offers 4G/LTE terminals products, including tablet PC,
pocket WiFi hotspot, modem and broadband customer premises equipment (CPE). The
company now holds 7 per cent of all global LTE patents among vendors.

Grand X LTE (T82) will soon be available at all CMHK shops
in Hong Kong on 31 August 2012 for HK $3,180. Customers can sign up for service
