I’m not sure if out there in the world there’s another dual SIM LTE phone, so I consider the ZTE MT73 handset a premiere. This is a device based on a MediaTek chipset, that offers it support TD-LTE connectivity, TD-SCDMA, GSM and dual SIM as well. Considering China Mobile is the exclusive carrier for TD-SCDMA, this is 100% Chinese material, so it won’t be reaching Europe and the USA.


The MT73 was recently taken for a hands on ride by the guys of Engadget, who spotted it at the China Mobile booth at Mobile Asia Congress. This is a prototype right now, one that runs Android 2.3.4 and also comes with a 800 MHz processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4.1 inch 854 x 480 LCD screen and a 5 megapixel camera. There’s also a VGA front cam for videocalls and a 1,100 mAh battery to juice up the unit.

ZTE build quality is present as usual, so there’s a cheap feel for this product made in China. China Mobile mentioned that the release of the phone depends on the government issuing a commercial license for TD-LTE. Will dual SIM LTE phones ever be hot in the USA?
