ZTE is one of the Chinese manufacturer, along side with Huawei and Lenovo that belongs to the Top 5 mobile manufacturers in the world. According to Canalys, ZTE was on the number 4 spot last Q4 of 2012 in terms of number of units shipped worldwide. However in the Philippines we don't really feel ZTE's presence in the mobile market.
While I am checking a community online store, I stumble upon the ZTE V987 Grand X Quad. Due to curiosity I made a quick check about its specification and as the name suggests it is actually a quad core device. I have not heard this ZTE model before and I just found out that it was announced last CES 2013 together with ZTE's flagship Grand S.
The ZTE Grand X Quad uses the MediaTek MT6589 chipset which is the same processor used in Cherry Mobile Blaze 2.0, SKK Mobile Silver, MyPhone A919i and O+ 8.15.
