Google Daydream adds ASUS, ZTE, Huawei phones, new headset

Google Daydream adds ASUS, ZTE, Huawei phones, new headset

Cardboard, Google’s first attempt at smartphone-powered virtual reality, was immediately available to almost every Android phone, and even some iPhones. In contrast, Daydream felt more like an exclusive club, with only the Pixel, and later on the Moto Z, as members. That club has just gotten a bit bigger, though not by much. Following announcements made at CES 2017, Google is formally welcoming four new smartphones into the Daydream fold. What’s even better is that it’s also announcing the first ever third-party Daydream headset to make it easier to, well, daydream.

ZTE Hawkeye, formerly Project CSX, jumps on Kickstarter

ZTE Hawkeye, formerly Project CSX, jumps on Kickstarter

From crowdsourcing to crowdfunding. That basically sums up the conception and infancy of the ZTE Hawkeye, the formal and final name of the smartphone that was born out of ZTE’s unexpected Project CSX, short for “Crowd Sourced X”. Now that smartphone, which is basically a self-adhesive device with built-in eye tracking, will be put to the test to see if there really is a market for such a smartphone. Or if supporters of the CSX initiative are truly ready to see this through and raise $500,000 to start the Hawkeye’s production.

ZTE Blade V8 Pro brings brand and dual cameras to the US

By now, ZTE should no longer be an unfamiliar name in the US smartphone market. Having started out with the budget nubia sub-brand, the Chinese manufacturer has brought a stronger and higher end Axon line to the West. Now it is filling in the gaps by bringing its Blade brand to this major market as well. Known for mixing usually premium features with mid-range specs and prices, the Blade V8 Pro, the first Blade to step on US soil, indeed sports dual cameras are earlier leaked. Fortunately, the actual facts turned out to be even better.

ZTE, Lenovo, Archos dragged into BLU’s AdUps scandal [UPDATE]

ZTE, Lenovo, Archos dragged into BLU’s AdUps scandal [UPDATE]

Warranted or not, Chinese companies have had the misfortune of being associated with shady business practices and espionage. That has recently come to a rather sour turn when that situation directly reached US shores via Florida-based mobile device maker BLU Products. It seems, however, that the extent of the AdUps spyware is more far-reaching than initially thought. According to a report from mobile security outfit Trustlook, AdUps’ list of customers also includes some rather known brands like ZTE, Lenovo, MediaTek, and even France-based Archos.

ZTE wants the crowd to name its crowdsourced smartphone

ZTE wants the crowd to name its crowdsourced smartphone

If you thought that ZTE was done asking people’s opinions about its next “innovation”, you’d be dead wrong. Last month, the company closed the doors on is “Crowd Source X” or CSX campaign that crowd-sourced the idea for a unique device it will present at CES 2017. But while the idea should already be on its way to actual design and production, there is apparently a small hold up. It doesn’t have a name yet. And so ZTE did what any company would do: ask the same crowd to come up with a name.

ZTE Axon 7 Enhanced: 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, limited supply

ZTE Axon 7 Enhanced: 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, limited supply

ZTE’s US market invasion continues. After the Axon 7, Axon 7 Mini, and an odd crowdsourcing campaign, the Chinese OEM has announced a “half refresh” of its Axon 7 flagship that no Android fan will be able to resist. Adding to the already high-end specs of the original, this “Enhanced” edition gets 6 GB of RAM , 128 GB of storage, and “Force Touch”. But if you’re guessing there’s a higher price to pay, you’d be spot on. To make matters worse for buyers, it won’t be available for long.

ZTE Grand X 4 brings affordable power to Cricket Wireless

It has been a very busy two months for ZTE in the US. First, it launched the Axon 7 Mini in the country for the first time. Then it wrapped up it’s crowdsourcing campaign for a smartphone. Finally, it brought the ZMax Pro to T-Mobile, after enjoying some alone time with MetroPCS. Now, it is heading for Cricket Wireless and it is bringing along the ZTE Grand X 4, successor to the same line that prepaid carrier got in January, promising you won’t have to compromise on features just to get a low price.

ZTE ZMax Pro comes to T-Mobile at long last

ZTE ZMax Pro comes to T-Mobile at long last

Not everyone wants all the trappings of a high-end and expensive flagship smartphone. But almost everyone wants the best smartphone that their money can buy, and, sometimes, that money is in short supply. Mid-range smartphones are a dime a dozen, so choosing the best can be as daunting as choosing a wedding gown. For T-Mobile subscribers, however, that choice might have just been made simpler. After enjoying some attention at MetroPCS, the ZTE ZMax Pro is arriving at T-Mobile with its surprising mix of high specs and low price.

ZTE’s crowdsourced product: an eye-tracking, self-adhesive phone

ZTE’s crowdsourced product: an eye-tracking, self-adhesive phone

The people have spoken. Finally putting an end to the unorthodox, somewhat insane, not to mention risky, crowdsourcing project, ZTE USA has revealed the finally tally of its CSX stunt. After whittling the useful, sometimes wacky ideas down to five, the ZTE community has voted that the company’s next mobile device will be a smartphone that can use eye-tracking to control and navigate the interface. And, to facilitate that completely hands-free operation, the device can also stick to walls as well.

ZTE Axon 7 Mini finally goes on pre-order in the US

ZTE Axon 7 Mini finally goes on pre-order in the US

“Mini” and “compact” are two words that no longer mean what they originally meant, at least not in the smartphone market. Take for example, the ZTE Axon 7 Mini, which is finally making its way to the US after a month of basking in European weather. There is nothing mini, compact, or small about it, standing at 5.2 inches. That said, one can probably claim that its price tag is, at least, miniature, compared to its full-blown ZTE Axon 7 counterpart.

Nubia Z11 mini S gets official with 23MP rear camera

Nubia Z11 mini S gets official with 23MP rear camera

The nubia z11 mini S smartphone has gone official and it has some very cool features packed inside a device that really isn't small as the mini name would imply. The smartphone has a 5.2-inch screen with full HD resolution. It comes in three colors including khaki, champagne, and alloy. I think most of us would call those colors gray, black, and gold.
