The ZTE Blade III hasn’t been announced by its manufacturer yet, but one Finnish retailer has already jumped the gun and revealed promotional images of the phone, along with a full spec sheet. The images on show a curved, white design reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. According to the listed specs, the phone runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon chip with 512MB of RAM. On the front there’s a 3.5-inch WVGA TFT display, and around the back there’s a 5MP camera.

So nothing earth shattering, but ZTE will be hoping that the handset’s design, along with the presence of Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, will be enough to coax European buyers into parting with their €199.

It seems the phone’s not far off release, so we’ll be on the lookout for the ZTE Blade III at the IFA show in Berlin next week.

Looks like a cheaper One X

Or few a few pennies more, you can get the ZTE Grand X, which is better all round.

Looks like Galaxy Nexus knock off


I don't get it; why are we starting to see a slew of phones with outdated specs? I understand that everything can't be high end, but why release a phone with specs from 2 years ago? Even if the average consumer doesn't care about specs, you can get a much better phone for cheaper or around the same price. The phone looks nice, but it has specs similar to what my 2 year old Droid Pro had when it came out.

If Samsung were like Apple they would have sued the crap out of ZTE.

No point in suing a company that isn't selling tons of phones. Apple went after Samsung because Sammy is the top Android device seller.

More like - if HTC was like Apple. This device is so similar to the One X it's a wonder if they didn't actually attempt to make it look like a cheap Chinese knockoff. I had to triple-check to make sure I wasn't looking at the wrong device.
