ZTE Gigabit Phone Reveal Confirmed For MWC 2017

ZTE will reportedly announce its first gigabit LTE smartphone - fittingly - at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.

Unsurprisingly, the ZTE gigabit phone is being tipped to use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor, as it includes an X16 modem capable of supporting gigabit LTE speeds.

No other details about the Gigabit Phone were shared, but ZTE's press release did say that the company will focus on 5G, cloudification and the "Internet of Everything".

4G LTE networks are a thing of the past as tech companies are now focusing on 5G which will provide even faster data speeds on mobile devices.

Now, let's talk a bit more about this smartphone, shall we. Qualcomm unveiled its first 5G compatible modem - Snapdragon X50 - with gigabit LTE technology previous year.

Besides the fantastic download speeds - ZTE did not share details of how the phone will achieve such fast connectivity - the Gigabit Phone will also have the ability to create panoramic, 360-degree video, and it will come with "instant cloud storage". Qualcomm's X16 LTE modem, which was announced earlier this year, is a successor to its X12 modem.

It seems ZTE is all set to embrace the much-hyped gigabit LTE networks. Although no word on the specifications of the phone has been announced just yet, we should see some big specifications on the spec-sheet when the phone is released this MWC 2017.
