Boost Mobile and ZTE have announced the new Warp Elite smartphone, the successor to the Warp Sync. Priced at just $179.99, the ZTE Warp Elite is shooting right for the mid-range market.
The ZTE Warp Elite has undergone a design overhaul from the last Warp smartphone, with a sleek looking case and large 5.5-inch display. Although the resolution is just 720×1280, which may be a little low at this size.
Inside the shell you will find a quad-core Snapdragon 410 SoC, backed up with 2GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front facing snapper. There’s also 16GB of internal memory with an expandable microSD card slot for an extra 64GB, 4G LTE support on US bands 25, 26, and 41, and compatibility with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 1.0 technology. There’s also Android 5.1 Lollipop on board straight out of the box.
Overall, the hardware is quite comparable to the similarly priced latest Motorola Moto G, just with a slightly larger display size. It certainly fits right into the mid-tier of the market.
As ZTE has partnered up with Boost, there are a selection of 4G data plans available to choose from. The lowest cost begins at $30 per month for unlimited talk and texts with 2GB of data, while 10GB of 3G/4G data can be yours for $55.
The ZTE Warp Elite is available from the Boost Mobile online store for $179.99 plus tax.
