ZTE Mimosa X to launch at MWC

Forget Apple-level secrecy or HTC's (un)controlled leaks - ZTE has officially announced its Mimosa X smartphone ahead of its launch at MWC next week, making it the second from the company today.


This Android smartphone is launching on that vaunted Ice Cream Sandwich software with a Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor running the show.


Partnering it is an Nvidia Icera modem chip, of note because Nvidia's acquisition of Icera's broadband processor means the chipet manufacturer is now on par with Qualcomm's offering.


Spec-wise, you'll be interested in its outers – a QHD (960x540) TFT touch-screen, five-megapixel auto-focus camera with flash, HD video record and play, as well as a 0.3-megapixel front-facer for video calls.


The usual smart connectivity applies - GPS, Wi-Fi, and DLNA support for wireless file sharing with compatible devices.


ZTE hasn't confirmed a price point for the device, but historically at least, it's been a stalwart of the budget smartphone market. The Windows-powered Tania was a recent favourite, and ZTE's Orange-branded phones such as the San Francisco II offer equally favourable money-to-value ratio, so we're expecting this averagely specced device to clock in at similar sub-£250 prices.


The Mimosa X will be out in the UK in Q2. We'll have more for you after Mobile World Congress.
