ZTE USA launches Grand X 3 smartphone, to retail for $ 130

CZTE USA, the fourth largest smartphone supplier in the U.S. and second largest in the no-contract market (according to Strategy Analytics, Q3 2015 stats) has announced the ZTE Grand X 3 smartphone, priced at just $129.99 MSRP. The Grand X 3 delivers high-end hardware and software at a fraction of the cost of similar smartphones, and will be available soon with Cricket Wireless.

“Today we are continuing our mission to deliver affordable premium smartphones with the Grand X 3,” said Lixin Cheng, chairman and CEO of ZTE USA. “Our users are now 20 million strong in the U.S. and ZTE phones provide the affordable connectivity that empowers users, encourages individually, and opens a world of possibilities.”

In 2015, ZTE ensured U.S. consumers could purchase a premium smartphone like the unlocked Axon for $450 – or even more affordable phones like the ZMAX 2 for $180. Continuing that momentum, ZTE is bringing the next generation of one of the best-selling smartphones in the U.S., the Grand X 3, which delivers on what consumers’ value most.
