Earlier this month, T-Mobile and ZTE finally announced that they would be launching the long-rumored ZMAX. Of course, we’d known it previously known as “Olympia” or “Z970”. The device features some admirable specs for a mid-range phone, and it looks like it’s on its way to MetroPCS too. A company inventory system shows the device in its list of available options and has it down as the “Z970 Olympia”.
As a reminder, the ZMAX features the following specs:
- 5.7-inch, 720p LCD display
- 1.2GHz quad-core processor
- LTE bands 2, 4, 7, 12, 17
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB storage with option to expand via MicroSD
- 3,400mAh battery
- Android KitKat 4.4
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac (2.4GHz/5GHz)
- Wi-Fi calling
- Bluetooth 4.0
T-Mobile is selling the device for $252 full retail ($10.50/mo on EIP with $0 down). Which – judging from the specs – is an absolute steal. Yet another example of a mid-range device which should offer a fantastic experience.
We’re yet to see MetroPCS officially announce the device, or its pricing. But it looks as though it is on its way soon.
