ZTE is already off to a flying start in 2017 with the unveiling of the Blade V8 Pro and announcement of Project CSX at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2017).
Rumors are rife that Shenzhen-based ZTE is coming up with yet another handset that bears the model number BA602. The Chinese telecommunication authority, TENAA has already certified the company's latest device with the license number 02-6467-170203.
This information listed on TENAA indicates that ZTE is currently working on the impending handset.
ZTE BA602 Features
The official information as shown on the TENAA suggests that the new device will sport a 5.5-inch HD display with the resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels and a pixel density of 267 ppi.
The smartphone is expected to pack a quad-core processor that can clock up to 1.25 GHz. The device is expected to come in three different variants and each of them will have a different RAM configuration.
The cheapest variant is expected to house 1 GB of RAM with an on-board storage capacity of 8 GB. The mid-range variant will have a 2 GB of RAM under its hood with an internal storage of 16 GB, while the most expensive variant will sport a combination of 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage.
The device is reportedly powered by a 3,000 mAh battery which is quite impressive for an entry-level smartphone. The handset is expected to come with the older Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, with ZTE's custom UI running on top.
The impending handset is expected to available in five color options of Quicksand Gold, Silver Galaxy, Phantom Gray, Quiet Blue, and Black. The handset will weigh 168 grams and measure 6.04 x 3.03 x 0.34 inches.
The ZTE BA602 will come equipped with an 8-megapixel primary camera and a 2-megapixel selfie snapper. The fingerprint sensor will not be embedded in the device's home button, but on the rear of the device.
TENAA also reveals that the packaging for the ZTE smartphone will include a travel charger, a data cable, and a Quick Guide.
Price And Release Date
With the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2017) around the corner it is possible that the ZTE BA602 may make its debut at the trade show. However, since it has been spotted on TENAA, it is likely that the device may get introduced in China before getting released in any other country.
There has been no information from ZTE or any outside source regarding the price and availability of the upcoming smartphone.
