BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ZTE, a leading global mobile device maker, today began to showcase a range of smart devices at Mobile World Congress 2015 that are soon to be launched in markets across Europe. Flagship products on show include the smart voice ZTE Star 2, Smart Sense ZTE Blade S6, and the innovative Spro 2, the only smart projector with a touchscreen Android operating system.
“We are very excited to confirm the upcoming European availability for several of our hottest new products,” said Kan Yulun, CEO of EMEA & LATAM, ZTE Mobile Devices, and Vice President of ZTE Corporation. “We will continue to bring our latest smartphones to markets across Europe, as well as other smart connected devices such as our Spro 2 smart projector.”
With optimized system-level voice control, the ZTE Star 2 on show at MWC 2015 has been upgraded to feature English-language GPS and speech-to-text input that supports British English. ZTE’s Star 2 is set to launch in Germany at CeBIT on 12 March 2015. At present, voice control functions that support Spanish are under development, which will be the third smart voice language available after Chinese and English.
The ZTE Blade S6, which features ZTE’s innovative Smart Sense - an intuitive and practical set of gesture and motion controls - will soon be launched offline via channel partners in Germany, Spain, and France at the end of the month. This follows recent online launches via AliExpress globally, as well as via eBay and Amazon for the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. Outside Europe, the ZTE Blade S6 is also set for offline launches in Malaysia, Thailand, Russia and other markets across the Asia Pacific. The ZTE Blade L3 was also on display at ZTE’s booth, a device aimed at the budget shopper and younger smartphone user, which is also destined for European launches in April 2015. Devices in the Blade series underscore ZTE’s commitment to offering premium smartphones at affordable prices.
Unlike any other smart projector, the Spro 2 features a touchscreen Android operating system that provides full access to the Google Play store and a mobile hotspot. The smart projector was revealed at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show and received four prestigious awards. The Spro 2 will be available later this year in the United States through wireless carriers and across European markets.
ZTE’s MWC 2015 smartphone line-up also included the iF DESIGN AWARD 2015 winner, ZTE Grand S3 with Eyeprint ID, as well as the ZTE Open L – one of the first LTE smartphones to ship with the latest version of Firefox OS 2.2. In addition to smartphones, other technology on display included the ZTE Sports Camera and ZTE in-house LTE chipsets.
