ZTE today revealed two new Android phones: one for AT&T, and one for AT&T subsidiary Cricket Wireless.
First up is the ZTE Maven, an Android 5.1 handset for AT&T. The Maven’s got a 4.5-inch 854x480 display and VGA camera on its face, and around back is a 5-megapixel camera with flash. Inside the Maven lives a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a microSD slot, 4G LTE connectivity, and a 2100mAh non-removable battery.
The ZTE Maven is available from today and can be used on AT&T or GoPhone, AT&T’s prepaid brand. It’ll set buyers back $59.99 without a commitment.
Meanwhile, Cricket Wireless is getting the ZTE Sonata 2, the follow-up to the original Sonata that launched in early 2014. The Sonata 2 packs a 4-inch 800x480 display, 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, 4GB of storage, and a microSD card slot. Powering the second Sonata is a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 1650mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat.
The ZTE Sonata 2 is available from Cricket Wireless starting today for $29.99.
Both the Maven and Sonata 2 are targeting the affordable handset market, and they’ve each got their own perks. The Maven comes with Android 5.1 preinstalled, meaning that buyers are immediately going to be on the newest version of Android publicly available, while the Sonata 2 has a ultra-cheap price tag and a bigger battery than its predecessor. If one of them appeals to you, you can head to an AT&T or Cricket store to grab it.
