ZTE Venture and Chaser Virgin Mobile Bound
In today’s edition of Prepaid Needs Love Too, we’ve got what appears to be a pair of Virgin Mobile’s upcoming budget friendly Androids. The good people over at Pocket Now have gotten hold of a couple of carrier branded renders, revealing both the ZTE-made Venture and Chaser. Reminiscent of the Motorola Titanium, the ZTE Venture sports about a 2.8-inch display and a full QWERTY keyboard. As for the rest of the device’s modest internals, the Venture is said to be rocking a lowly 600MHz processor, 512MB of RAM and a splash of Gingerbread for flavor.
Designed with a more modern look and feel, the ZTE Chaser is sadly said to easily be caught, as it’s suspected to carry bargain bin internals as well. Expected to be based off of the ZTE X500, the Chaser is likely to carry a 3.5-inch display, 600MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, a 3.2 megapixel camera and Android 2.3.
As it stands, pricing and release details are a mystery, but we’re suspecting a sub-$150 price point and a late December/early January release for both handsets. If you’re not a fan of contracts and are looking for a smartphone capable of running a few apps, then these two just might fit the bill.
