ZTE Anthem 4G
MetroPCS had the ZTE Anthem 4G on hand at an event in New York City. Here are our initial impressions.
MetroPCS today announced the ZTE Anthem 4G, ZTE's first Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone that is compatible with an LTE 4G network. The Anthem features a 4.3-inch WVGA display and it is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor. Other features include a 5-megapixel main camera with 1080p HD video capture and a VGA user-facing camera; HDMI port and Dolby Surround; Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth 3.0; and 512MB of RAM, 4GB of on-board storage, and support for microSD storage cards. The ZTE Anthem 4G will be available in the coming weeks for $219 after mail-in-rebate.
Documents seen on the Federal Communications Commission web site show details about an unannounced ZTE handset with spectrum support for MetroPCS's LTE 4G network. The ZTE N910 is a bar-style device that runs an unknown version of Google's Android platform. Features seen in photos published by the FCC include a large touch display, 5-megapixel camera with flash, Qualcomm MSM8660 processor, microUSB, 3.5mm headset jack, and support for microSD cards. The draft user manual mentions MetroPCS several times, and also points out features such GPS and Bluetooth. The ZTE N910 has not yet been announced by MetroPCS.
ZTE may have announced eight new smartphones, but only two are headed to the U.S., the PF200 and the N91. Here are our initial hands-on thoughts.
