ZTE T-Mobile phablet testing

T-Mobile doesn’t have many current phablet devices on its roster, with only the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and LG G Flex filling both of those criteria. It looks like that group could soon gain a new member, though, as a leak has suggested that T-Mo is testing a new Android phone-tablet hybrid.

An image shared by @evleaks claims to show an Android phablet device that’s said to be in testing at T-Mobile. The giganto-phone is made by ZTE and appears to be running a mostly-vanilla version of Android. There’s not a ton of information to be gleaned from this leaked photo, but we can see that the handset has skinned on-screen navigation buttons and T-Mobile’s Visual Voicemail app.

Since we can’t really see much of the phone itself in this photo, it’s difficult to determine which ZTE device it could be. The company recently introduced the Grand Memo II LTE, which has a 6-inch display, but the camera and earpiece on this T-Mobile-bound unit are very different from the international GMIILTE.

What do you think of phablet-style devices? Are you a phablet phan or do you prefer to turn to a tablet for your large-screen needs?
