zte u950You know, I once saw this world map that divided the world into how America sees it – and China was labeled as the “World’s Supermarket”. The thing is, one would not be wrong to think this way considering how they managed to churn out the ZTE U950, a 1.3GHz Tegra 3 powered smartphone that costs all of just 999 yuan, meaning it does not break the $200 barrier if you convert the local currency there to US dollars. In fact, we are talking about just $160 thereabouts here for an unlocked device, and it comes accompanied by 1GB RAM, 4GB of internal memory, a 4.3” display and a 2,000mAh battery powering the puppy.

At the back lies a 5-megapixel camera, while the front has a VGA camera for your video call needs. All of those are stuffed into a body that measures a mere 9mm thin – pretty impressive, don’t you think so? Too bad it does not come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but rather, you will have to rock to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box. Doesn’t look likely that this will ever make it Stateside though.
