The 4.3-inch ZTE Skate smartphone, announced at this year’s Mobile World Congress, is now set to arrive in the UK in the summer, 2011.
At the show in Barcelona ZTE previously announced its Skate Android-powered device would be arriving on our shores in May, but that would no longer seem the case.
In a chat with Pocket Lint, Wu Sa, the Director of Mobile Device Operations for ZTE UK, confirmed the release date would be in the “early” second half of 2011, indicating June or July.
If you missed it, the ZTE Skate will come equipped with a 800MHz processor, an Adreno 200 graphics processing unit (GPU), Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a hefty 4.3-inch display and a 5-megapixel camera.
In case you were wondering, this isn’t the first mobile from the manufacturer. The Orange San Francisco – a budget entry-level Android smartphone we awarded four stars in our review – is also made by ZTE.
