A while back ZTE unveiled the Mimosa X, an Android powered smartphone that utilized NVIDIA’s Icera modem, a dual-core processor and came with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich preinstalled. Now if the rumors are to be believed, it looks like ZTE might have another Mimosa phone up their sleeves, but instead of Android, the ZTE Mimosa will run on Windows Phone instead and will be most likely be launched for the Chinese market in mind.
The device will be powered by Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh, or better known as Tango, a version of Windows Phone that has its requirements lowered to allow for more affordable devices to be built in order to target the developing market. As far as its specs are concerned, the rumors are saying that the ZTE Mimosa will feature an 800MHz processor and 256MB of RAM, but that’s pretty much all that’s available for now.
Price wise the Mimosa is also said to be competing with the Nokia Lumia 610, which means that if and when the device makes its way onto the shelves, we can expect to see it priced at an affordable range of $200-$250. The reports have also mentioned that we can expect to see the ZTE Mimosa launch in China come May, so until then, we’ll take this with a grain of salt and we will be keeping our eyes peeled.
