The ZTE Geek has one of the most messed up announcements every made in mobile history. The first time ZTE Geek was seen was way back in April this year. At that time the ZTE Geek was supposed to come with a dual core 2 GHz Intel Atom processor. The ZTE Geek “old version” was also supposed to have upper mid-range specs with a 720p HD screen. That version of ZTE Geek was slated to be launched during the third quarter of this year.
Fast forward a few months to July and ZTE Geek was seen at TENAA certification. The spoiler about the smartphone detailed some revamped specs and a full HD screen. This effectively ruined anything surprising the ZTE Geek might have going for it. The leak also spilled the beans on the Tegra 4 SoC which was going to be used in the ZTE Geek. Following the almost full spec leak ZTE announced that the smartphone is indeed in the works.
Now we come to today when the ZTE Geek is being announced a second time (or is it the third? I have lost count). The ZTE Geek will indeed come with a 5 inch 1080p Full HD screen and will feature Nvidia’s best SoC. Clocked at 1.8 GHz the quad core Tegra 4 will be powering up the ZTE Geek along with 2 GB of RAM. The smartphone will have a 2300 mAh battery which is kind of a disappointment. This official information came during the Beijing International Telecommunication Exhibition. The smartphone will only be available on China Mobile’s network making it effectively unusable almost everywhere else. The ZTE Geek comes at a remarkable price of only 1888 Yuan, which translate to almost $308. A full HD 5 inch screen and a quad core processor for 300 bucks is a great deal in our books. We will keep you posted.
