The Grand X 2, the third generation of the ZTE Grand series, is now available at Bell and Virgin Mobile according to ZTE Canada. The Grand X 2 looks good, runs well, and is available at a budget price.

If you’re not familiar with ZTE, that’s okay. The Chinese telecommunications company, despite being the fourth largest smartphone maker in the world, isn’t that well known of a name. When MEGATechNews spoke to ZTE Canada Chairman Lixin Cheng at CES 2015, he talked about the future of the company, which included the Grand X 2.

The Grand X 2 could easily be the company’s next big hit, with impressive specs for its low cost. The phone offers a 5.0 HD screen made of Corning Gorilla Glass 3, a 1.2GHz Qualcomm quad-core processor, an 8MP rear camera that captures 1080p HD video, a 2MP front-facing camera, and 16GB of internal storage with a MicroSD slot. Where the phone really excels is the cost, which is $149.95 off-contract or you can get it free with a two-year contract from Bell Mobility or Virgin Mobile.
