EE own-brand Android phone pictured

UK carrier EE could be about to launch its own-branded Android phone, if a photo obtained by Engadget is to be believed. The tiny picture doesn't reveal much besides an EE-themed skin and a squarish design with capacitive keys. But apparently it'll be LTE-capable, and today's report indicates that it'll also support Cat. 4, allowing it to take advantage of the carrier's fastest 4G speeds.

We've seen own-brand handsets from UK carriers in the past, but this would be the first for EE, and the first with 4G LTE connectivity. Pricing will reportedly come in somewhere below the Alcatel OneTouch Idol S, currently EE's cheapest 4G phone, at £130 on PAYG. Engadget says the phone is still "a good few months off" from release, so it appears bargain-seekers will have a little longer to wait.

  • Wow those icons are just horrible. Why do all the own brand/budget brands insist on ugly skins like that? Why not just use stock icons if you're gonna make it look like something more fitting for pre gingerbread?! Posted via Android Central App

  • Moto G = 3G This device = 4G LTE-A I think that is reason enough. Posted via my SPARK enabled Sprint LG G2, with 32GBs of internal memory and no sdcard. (Bring on 4.4.2, I can handle it.)
  • Not sure if you're English but EE's 4g tarrifs are extortionate. If you're paying that price you most likely wouldn't be rocking a low end phone which is worth the equivalent of 2 months of your 2 year contract Posted via Android Central App
