Chinese telecom major, ZTE on Friday forayed into Indian handset market with the launch of premium smartphone Grand X Quad Lite along with a slew of mid-range devices.

ZTE's high-end phone Grand X Quad Lite sports a 5.0-inch screen with qHD 960x540p display resolution and runs on Android v4.2 Jelly Bean OS with 1GB RAM and 4GB inbuilt memory which can be expanded up to 32Gb via microSD card.

The new ZTE phone packs a 1.2GHz quad-core processor powered by a 2500 mAh battery. Camera wise, it flaunts a 5.0-megapixel camera on the rear side and VGA camera on the front side.

With a price-tag of ₹14,999, ZTE Grand X Quad Lite is a bit let down in term of its specification. It is expected to face daunting task of competing with local devices like Lava Iris 504Q, Xolo Play T1000, Micromax A116 Canvas HD and many more which boasts of superior specs at reasonable prices.

Along with Grand X Quad Lite, ZTE also launched four Blade branded mid-range smartphones- Blade L (₹12,599), Blade E (₹11,999), Blade G2 (₹11,599), Blade C (₹7,599), and the Chinese company also released four Swift series 3G data cards.
