    [Updated] ZTE Officially Unveiled 5.7" Grand Memo; with Snapdragon 600

    Here is a launch that almost got lost in the hustle and bustle of MWC yesterday. The ZTE Grand Memo was fairly easy to overlook, since ZTE isn't one of the big named OEMs. Plus, the device itself is very large, (5.7-inches), so folks might tend to pre-judge/dismiss it prematurely. T̶h̶e̶ ̶m̶o̶s̶t̶ ̶i̶n̶t̶e̶r̶e̶s̶t̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶f̶a̶c̶t̶o̶i̶d̶ ̶a̶b̶o̶u̶t̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶m̶o̶n̶s̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶p̶h̶a̶b̶l̶e̶t̶ ̶t̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶i̶s̶ ̶w̶o̶r̶t̶h̶ ̶a̶ ̶s̶e̶c̶o̶n̶d̶ ̶l̶o̶o̶k̶ ̶i̶s̶ ̶t̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶i̶s̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶w̶o̶r̶l̶d̶'̶s̶ ̶f̶i̶r̶s̶t̶ ̶d̶e̶v̶i̶c̶e̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶o̶f̶f̶e̶r̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶n̶e̶w̶ ̶q̶u̶a̶d̶-̶c̶o̶r̶e̶ ̶S̶n̶a̶p̶d̶r̶a̶g̶o̶n̶ ̶8̶0̶0̶ ̶c̶h̶i̶p̶s̶e̶t̶ ̶f̶r̶o̶m̶ ̶Q̶u̶a̶l̶c̶o̶m̶m̶.̶ Despite the oddity of the device, we can't wait to see some benchmarks for it, just to see how much power that new Qualcomm chip is packing. Here's a full press release with spec-list,

    Other than a weak resolution on the display, these specs are nothing to scoff at. Share your thoughts.

    [Updated: Although we doubt most of you will care too much about this. It turns out that ZTE's own press release was wrong and this new device will not come with the Snapdragon 800, but will instead come with the Snapdragon 600 chip. We felt it prudent to share this updated info. Oddly, even though ZTE themselves backtracked, they have not issued a revised press release, so we will leave it as is below.]

    BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ZTE has launched the ZTE Grand Memo 5.7-inch handset running on Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 processors.

    The ZTE Grand Memo offers the ideal balance between the portability of a handset and the larger viewing and easier touch-interaction experience of a tablet. It features a 5.7-inch, high definition, 720 x 1280 display, and a powerful Qualcomm 800 processor with quad-core Krait CPUs and 2GB of RAM. Combined with a 13MP rear-facing camera, 1MP front-facing camera and 1080 HD video playback, this gives users a smooth, high quality multimedia experience that is perfect for gaming and video.

    The Grand Memo caters to those who are always on-the-go, with voice-response technology which allows users to answer calls safely while driving, and A-GPS and car-mode navigation system for high quality mapping and directions. It comes with a HD version of ZTE’s Mifavor user interface that is specially designed for smartphones, providing a simpler user experience, and ZTE’s Z Cloud service for the security and access-anywhere provided by cloud services. It also includes a 3200mAh battery for super-long standby time.

    “The ZTE Grand Memo’s large, high definition screen makes it perfect for media and entertainment, but its uses reach far beyond that,” said Mr. He Shiyou, ZTE EVP and Head of the Mobile Devices Division. “With ZTE’s custom Mifavor UI, a powerful processor, and LTE connectivity, this device offers users a wide array of benefits that go well beyond the capabilities of the typical handset.”

    Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processors target premium mobile and computing devices. They are designed to deliver outstanding overall user experience, expand the possibilities of seamless connected computing and enable brand new mobile experiences while maintaining industry-leading battery performance.

    “Qualcomm Snapdragon platforms are at the heart of over 770 announced smartphones and tablets, and we are thrilled to work with ZTE to bring the Grand Memo to consumers,” said Raj Talluri, senior vice president of product management at Qualcomm Technologies.

    The Grand Memo is a slim 8.5mm, ensuring that its advanced performance is matched by its sleek appearance. The 1080P HD video and 13MP rear-facing Intelligent Camera, coupled with the 16GB storage memory make movie watching as sharp and detailed as the capturing of users’ own multimedia. Combined with high-speed LTE capabilities of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, integrated Qualcomm WCN3680 802.11ac/.11n dual-band Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth solution for high-bandwidth communications, MHL and DLNA connectivity for mobile entertainment, the ZTE Grand Memo is perfectly suited for both personal and office use.

    “We have really tried to make this device fun for use at home, and practical for use in the office. By combining both of these factors, we have created a well-rounded large-screen handset that is suitable for any situation. It’s perfect for videos, gaming and music, and also for sending e-mails, checking news and making calls on the go. For those with a busy lifestyle, the ZTE Grand Memo will be indispensable,” said Mr. He Shiyou, ZTE.

    There's report that it's actually not running the 800 processor and was misleading the media. It was downgraded to the 600 and then it's said to be running the same processor the Nexus 4 is running I believe. But it's been confirmed by Qualcomm that it's not running the 800 processor. It's also been confirmed to only have 1GB Ram than the reported 2GB.
