zte-logo-001.jpgZTE are planning to launch a whopping 8 smartphones at next week’s MWC 2012 show. With three devices already revealed, the Chinese company has now also teased “a major new quad-core flagship handset”.

While little is yet known about the quad-core device, details of the other three unveiled handsets look promising, each packing Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

First, the PF200. It has a 4.3-inch QHD capacitive touch screen, powered by a 1.5GHz chipset, with an 8-megapixel camera and a 1080p HD front facing camera for video calling.

Next the Mimosa X, with a 4.3 inch, 960×540 pixel resolution screen, a 5MP camera, Dolby sound and DLNA features. Under the hood of the Mimosa X also sits a Tegra 2 dual-core chipsetand an Icera 450 modem.

Lastly, the N910. This one’s unlikely to hit our shores due to its use of the LTE FDD, CDMA and EVDO spectrum range, and features a WVGA (800×480) touchscreen and a 5MP camera.

“There is no doubt that this year’s Mobile World Congress will again see some exciting device launches.The new devices from ZTE will demonstrate how ZTE is without doubt among an elite group of handset providers as next generation telecommunications networks roll out globally,” said He Shiyou, EVP and head of the Terminals Division at ZTE.

“ZTE returns at least ten per cent of its revenues back into R&D to ensure that it sustains its position as a true market innovator – and we’re counting down to being able to showcase this to the world’s mobile industry next week.”
