ZTE Quartz Android Wear smartwatch gets leaked

ZTE Quartz Android Wear smartwatch gets leaked

Android Wear is already at its second major version but ZTE has yet to actually launch its first smartwatch. Long-rumored and almost forever-delayed, that smartwatch might finally be arriving real soon. At least if you consider these leaked photos that show a retail-ready form of the ZTE Quartz. That said, if you also consider the information that came with the images, you might wonder if it was worth the wait at all.

ZTE nubia N1 lite tries to make a big splash at MWC 2017

ZTE nubia N1 lite tries to make a big splash at MWC 2017

When ZTE sub-brand nubia released the nubia N1 last year, it barely made a peep. With the less capable but supposedly more affordable nubia N1 lite, however, it is devoting some MWC 2017 space for it. Which is even more ironic considering the N1 lite is truly a “lite” version of the N1, though nubia promises that it has just enough features to be worth its cost.

ZTE Blade V8 Mini and Lite offer more choices for everyone

ZTE Blade V8 Mini and Lite offer more choices for everyone

Just last month, ZTE launched its popular Blade brand in the US with the Blade V8 Pro. The point of the brand was to offer some semblance of premium features at a not so premium price. At MWC 2017, the Chinese OEM is unveiling two “offshoots” of the Blade V8 line, the Blade V8 Mini and the Blade V8 Lite. Unlike the more or less generic Blade V8 Pro, these two focus their energies, not to mention their specs, on specific user groups that may have needs that another group may not want.

ZTE Axon 7 Nougat update brings Daydream, Hiya caller ID

ZTE is making good on its commitment to deliver a quality Android smartphone experience to the US.

ZTE Hawkeye Kickstarter might be canceled for higher end model

ZTE Hawkeye Kickstarter might be canceled for higher end model

With the perks of getting help, even funding, from the public comes the risks of increased scrutiny and sometimes even scathing criticism. Such is the lesson that ZTE is learning now after what was a smooth-flowing crowdsourced stunt turned into a crowdfunding disappointment. The Kickstarter for Hawkeye, the crowdsourced eye-tracking self-adhesive phone, seems to be beyond hope and ZTE is very likely to just cancel it. Not all hope, however, is lost because that could give way to a new Kickstarter with a higher end smartphone being offered.

ZTE Hawkeye specs reconsidered amidst dismal Kickstarter

ZTE Hawkeye specs reconsidered amidst dismal Kickstarter

ZTE's Project CSX, short for Crowd Sourced X, has always been a big leap of faith. It first asked the crowds what phone they wanted to be made and is now asking them for help in funding it. All up to the Kickstarter, it has been fairly smooth sailing. But when ZTE finally unveiled everything, including the specs, things seem to have taken a downward turn. And now, ZTE is making yet another unorthodox and potentially risky action again. It is admitting it has made a mistake.

ZTE Blade V8 Pro premium features, budget price now available

At CES 2017, ZTE made two big splashes. First was the formal unveiling of the ZTE Hawkeye, it’s self-adhesive eye-tracking smartphone born out of an unorthodox crowdsourcing campaign. While its crowdfunding phase might be in a bit of trouble, ZTE’s second reveal might have better luck. It has, true to rumors, brought its Blade smartphone line to the US, starting with the ZTE Blade V8 Pro. The mid-range Android device flaunts flagship-level features at an unbeatable price and can now be yours if you so wish.

ZTE Hawkeye crowdsourced phone specs are mid-range at best

ZTE Hawkeye crowdsourced phone specs are mid-range at best

ZTE announced the formal name and existence of its first, and probably last, crowdsourced smartphone back at CES earlier this month. So it's a bit puzzling that it chose to withhold the actual specs of such an equally puzzling smartphone until the last minute. Well it is finally spilling all the beans about the ZTE Hawkeye, the product formerly known as Project CSX ("Crowd Source X"). Now the question whether it's to late for those details to do its struggling Kickstarter any good.

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.
