Summary:

The Good: Big OGS HD LCD, relatively slim profile, big battery


The Bad: No 850 for GSM or WCDMA


Verdict: Could be a great option for those not requiring 850

Great looking new phone from ZTE with MTK6589 is soon to be released. The model is V987. The ZTE Z987 will have a 720p HD 5″ OGS IPS LCD, 2500mA battery, Android 4.1, 1GB RAM / 4GB ROM, 1MP / 8MP cameras and a 9.2mm profile.

I’m really liking the looks of the ZTE V987. The side borders are quite thin for a 5″ LCD, OGS is a very nice inclusion and the 2500mA battery is a huge plus.

What’s not to like is the lack of 850mhz, not only for WCDMA, but GSM as well. Americans and any other people who rely on 850 will want to stay well away from this phone. In 2013, it’s almost shocking to see a phone not include 850 at least for GSM – especially for such a large player as ZTE, but there we have it.

The ZTE is expected to go on sale on Febuary 5 at a retail price of 1699 yuan.
