This spring the Chinese ZTE company has launched 2 interesting handsets on the US market, the ZTE C78 and ZTE C79, which came out with Advanced Wireless Services support for the specific frequency bands, enabling access to next generation voice, data and multimedia applications.
Back in April we didnâ€™t have a nice picture with the ZTE C79 model but now we have it from the MetroPCS carrier where you can purchase the cell phone from at a price of $169.
ZTE C79 is a CDMA music phone in a clamshell design, bringing 60MB of user memory for different media files including downloaded games and applications, while sporting external dedicated music keys for the built-in MP3 player.
This mid-level stylish red cell phone has a built-in 1.3MP camera with autofocus, self-timer and flash, Bluetooth connectivity technology for short-range wireless transfers, speakerphone, and the extra frequency bands support called AWS, besides the standard PCS and Cellular.
It measures 3.5 x 1.75 x 0.7 inches, integrating a 1000mAh Li-Ion battery lasting up to 3.6 hours of continuous talk time, and 200 hours in standby mode.
Other features include a 176 x 220 main display of 262K colors, an external display measuring 96 x 64 pixels in diagonal and supporting up to 64K colors, and microSD card slot for adding up to 2GB external memory.
"At ZTE, we provide carriers with handsets that have great features and design at an affordable price because we know that is what many consumers today are searching for," said Dr. George Sun, CEO of ZTE USA. "With the ZTE C79, we are giving consumers everything they are looking for on a single, sleek device. Furthermore, MetroPCS is the perfect partner to help us deliver this handset to the U.S. market."
