ZTE Grand X - front view
ZTE's Grand X smartphone, launched on Wednesday, will arrive running the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) version of Android and at a price below £200.
ZTE showed off the dual-core Tegra 2 device at a press event in London on Wednesday. Its launch marks a renewed push by the Chinese company to become a household name in the European smartphone market.
At the event, the company highlighted the "fast download speeds" and video processing delivered by the Nvidia Tegra 2 processor.
"This [Grand X] will be a milestone in establishing ZTE in the UK," said He Shiyou, global head of the company's Terminals division.
In general, the Grand X pairs middle-of-the-road specs with a mid-tier price point. Here, we put it up against the Orange San Diego, the first smartphone in the UK to use the Intel Atom processor — a good example of the mid-tier Android phones the Grand X will compete with.
