Now here is a handset from the folks over at ZTE which intends to provide a sense of continuity, although this time around you will not be able to pick up the Zmax 2 from T-Mobile, as ZTE has decided on AT&T to be their US partner and mobile carrier for their latest phone. In fact, this device falls under the mid-range segment of things, where it will just cost $149.99 unlocked, now how about that for affordability?
That kind of pricing would see you end up with a 5.5” 720p touchscreen display, an 8MP camera with LED flash at the back, a 2MP front-facing shooter, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable memory, a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 4G LTE connectivity, Dolby Digital Plus Audio, and a 3,000 mAh removable battery, and Android 5.1 Lollipop as the mobile operating system of choice.

It seems that the Samsung Galaxy Note5 might actually end up with an actual competitor some time next year, thanks to the efforts by the folks over at Huawei, if the latest rumors are to be believed. Basically, word has gone out on the street that Huawei will be the one behind this particular device, where they are working on a phablet which will make use of a stylus.
After all, Huawei is also said to be in the hunt for a stylus manufacturer that is capable of delivering a capacitive pen which will hopefully rival the S Pen that is found in the Note range from Samsung. Not only that, it is also said that Huawei’s phablet will make use of ‘palm rejection’ technology. In other words, that technology will see the touchscreen ignore your palm should you hold the handset with one of your hands, while using your other hand or stylus to touch the display.
Let us wait and see if it eventually comes to fruition.
