ZTE to enter the rugged smartphone market

ZTE is about to join the likes of Kyocera and Casio and launch its very first rugged smartphone. The newly leaked ZTE G601U comes with “usual for these kind of devices” mediocre specs along with a rock-solid body that should keep it working even under the harshest of conditions.

It packs a 4-inch WVGA screen, 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, VGA front-facing camera, 1.3GHz dual-core processor, 3G/HSPA + Wi-Fi connectivity, 1GB of RAM, solid 2,500mAh battery and a microSD memory expansion slot, while Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is running the show. Size wise, the G601U measures 127.4 x 66 x 12 mm and has a weight of 156 grams. Yeah, it’s kinda heavy but that’s the price one needs to pay to get a durable device that works just about everywhere.

We’ve no idea when ZTE will officially launch this phone nor where it will be available from. Considering the fact it was caught at Chinese certification body, the chances are ZTE will launch it in its home market first, eventually bringing it to other parts of the world, as well. We’ll see…
