While Jelly Bean handsets aren’t very common on the market today, it looks like ZTE is going to be one of the first few OEMs to provide them. The company announced today the launch of the updated ZTE N880E – it’s first Android 4.1 Jelly Bean phone in China. The ZTE N990E will feature a 4″ WVGA display, a 1GHz Qualcomm 7627A processor, 4GB of onboard storage, a 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera and a microSD card slot. The phone was launched earlier this year with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and it looks like ZTE just gave it an upgrade in the software department to make it more relevant.
Its specs aren’t anything to shout about, but hey – it comes with the latest version of Android, so that should keep people happy. No word on whether the device will hit the States, but we’ll keep you posted if it does.
