The New ZTE Warp 7 Is Available Online From Boost Mobile

China-based ZTE announced the Warp 7, a low-range, affordable smartphone will be available on Boost Mobile starting at just $99.99.

The Warp 7 may still qualify as a budget device at $99, but that doesn’t mean it’s compromising. The handset, which weighs 175 grams and measures 154.3 x 76 x 9.3 mm, sports a 5.2-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) TFT display shielded by Gorilla Glass 3. Under the hood, it is packing a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor paired with 2 gigabyte of RAM, and around the front and back a 1080p-capable 13 megapixel rear-facing camera and 5 megapixel front-facing shooter. In terms of storage, the Warp 7 ships with 16 gigabyte of built-in memory and a Micro SD slot that can accommodate cards up to 64 gigabyte in size.

Powering all those components is generous 3,080mAh battery, which ZTE said should last about 32 hours on a call. Better still, it also supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 standard — in theory, you’ll be able to plug it into a wall charger, return in 15 minutes or so, and count on hours of charge when you unplug. That’s a major convenience, needless to say.

The Warp 7 follows ZTE’s other $100 prepaid handset, the ZMax Pro, which was announced in July for the MetroPCS. Despite a similar price tag, the ZMax Pro has slightly better specs, including a 6-inch screen with a sharper 1,080p resolution, an octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor and a 3,400mAh battery.

Still, Boost Mobile’s handset is a pretty decent deal and we will know more once we get our hands on it.
