Looks like something big is happening down at the ZTE camp. The company's just tweeted that it'll be launching 'advanced gaming smartphone' in just six days time. That'll be next Wednesday, July 18, then. We saw plenty of devices from ZTE at Mobile World Congress this year, including smartphones and tablets, but nothing which quite matches this description. We're eager to see how ZTE's new stuff differentiates itself from previous gaming-focused phones, including the ill-fated Nokia N-Gage, and the Sony Xperia Play, which wasn't exactly a resounding success.
So roll on next week, and we'll let you know what they have lined up for us. We will of course be at the event to bring you full coverage of whatever ZTE announces.
