ZTE Grand X on T-Mobile

A revision of the ZTE Grand X (read our review) has just passed through the FCC, undoubtedly destined to land on T-Mobile. Not only does the device have FCC clearance to operate on T-Mobile's 1700/2100MHz AWS frequencies for HSPA+, but also has a nice bit of T-Mobile branding on the back. Other than the new radio and branding, we're likely looking at the same device that was released internationally a few months back -- a 4.3-inch qHD (540x960) screen, Tegra 2 processor, 5MP camera and stock Ice Cream Sandwich.

T-Mobile regularly picks up some of these less than mainstream devices, and usually ends up offering them at pretty compelling price points. The Grand X is no slouch by any means, and should be a solid mid-range offering for many customers.

Hope it's Free on Contract. In an age where we have high-end phones going between $100 and $200 this device should be free on contact.

I still dunno if I trust ZTE with my info. I'll pass, even to test one out.

LOL I can't take you people seriously anymore.

I'm not interested simply due to the Tegra2.

Tegra 2... I didn't even notice that. Tegra 2 and qHD... they should be giving you money to take this devices.


+9000 Those are specs from 2011. Anything more than free-on-contract is asking too much, imo.

T-Mobile is not subsidizing phones anymore


+9000 You're right. I totally forgot about that. Maybe other carriers will follow suit.

Even more of a reason for this phone to be free lol

YAY! then maybe i can flash a stable android 4.1 to my craptacular LG GX2. Still only 2.3 :(

FYI, both have Tegra 2 with 512 ram and there is 4.0+ but not stable... full stock 2.3 barley became stable a few months ago.
