[MWC 2012] Quad-core certainly is the buzz word of 2012 as ZTE has just taken the wraps off their own quad-core handset, the ZTE Era, which the company claims is the most powerful Android smartphone in their portfolio, thanks to NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor.
The ZTE Era will come with NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor under the hood that has been clocked at 1.3GHz, along with NVIDIA’s Icera 450 HSPA+ modem that will also be making an appearance in the ZTE Mimosa X. The device will also sport a 4.3” 960×540 display and will measure 7.8mm thin. 8GB of internal storage will be available but can be expanded via microSD card, along with an 8MP rear-facing camera and NFC support via ZTE’s Touch and Share app.
The phone will run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and will feature a brand new UI that the company is calling Mifavor. If you’re interested in getting your hands on the ZTE Era, expect it to be made available in the second half of 2012 for European and Chinese markets. No word on a stateside launch at the moment.
