ZTE seems to be planning to unveil a new smartphone as a device modeled the Z851 passes the WiFi certification from the official Wi-Fi Alliance site. Though this makes it quite clear that ZTE could well be into announcing a new smartphone, it’s surprising considering the fact that nothing is known about the device and googling it certainly doesn’t get us the results we might need.
As expected, WiFi Alliance barely reveals anything about the upcoming smartphone barring the fact that the device runs on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Upon further inspection it’s we realized that the new device resembles the company’s 2013 variant of the ZTE Grand X2 which bear the model number Z850, so we thought it could be the successor to the Grand X2.
But the Grand X2 already had a successor in the Grand X3, which brings us back to square one. So we request you take all of what we suggested with a pinch of salt before getting to know anything more about the Z851 when it releases.
Last week another one of ZTE’s upcoming smartphones cleared the TENAA certification as the company also sees to keen on launching the A2018 shortly after the unveiling of the entry-level ZTE Max XL which is supposed to be sold with a mammoth 3990mAh battery.
