Huge: ZTE Allegedly has 5.7-inch Phablet in the Works

In addition to ZTE’s 5-inch, 1080p handsets, the company also has a device in the works that out-bigs Samsung’s Galaxy Note II. Because with smartphones, bigger automatically equals success and power and presence. That seems to be the mantra companies are heeding as we near next week’s CES.

The newest ZTE handset, only known by its model number P945, will allegedly sport a 5.7-inch 720p display and come equipped with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. So it’s bigger, but it’s not exactly better spec-wise than the company’s Z5.

Other supposed specs include a frame thinner than 9mm, 8-megapixel camera (1-megapixel front), 3,000mAh battery, and an undetermined version of Android—sources believe Ice Cream Sandwich or above. Let’s hope it’s the above. The device is planned to hit China Mobile before summer, with a wider rollout currently unknown.
