With the release of Windows Phone 8, we are starting to see devices from Nokia and HTC that sport some pretty big screens, displays large enough to compete with some of the higher-end Android phones out there. However it looks like ZTE might have both companies beat – in fact it seems that ZTE might even have Android manufacturers beat with the release of their upcoming Windows Phone 8 device. Lu Qian Hao, the head of market strategy for ZTE has recently posted a photo (pictured above) on Weibo of the company’s upcoming handset.
Along with the photo, Lu also wrote that ZTE’s new Windows Phone 8 handset will feature a display of 5.9”, which is larger than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and a resolution of 1920×1080! The handset is also expected to feature DTS audio technology which should help with the audio experience, although in all honesty it’s hard to beat a set of actual speakers. At this point in time we have to stop and take a step back because this is a bit odd considering that Microsoft never announced support for Full HD displays; that and the fact that the phone in the photo above is sporting the old Windows Phone 7.x logo makes it all the more suspicious. We suggest you take this with huge shovels of salt for now and hopefully ZTE will be able to clarify those details in the near future.
