ZTE Hawkeye Tech Specs, Release Date, and Price
ZTE Hawkeye is a Project CSX Phone and the goal is to produce a crowdsourced smartphone. This smartphone has been in rumor for a while, but now its tech specs has been officially announced. We will talk about its specs, features, price, and release time.
ZTE Hawkeye Tech Specs
ZTE Hawkeye will feature a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution, 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM, and the storage can also be expanded with a MicroSD card that supports up to 256GB. So you won’t have to compromise with media files. The device supports 2 SIM cards, but you can either use 2 SIM Cards or 1 SIM + MicroSD. The device will run Android 7.0 Nougat Operating System.
As far as Chipset is concerned, it will feature Snapdragon 625 octa-core CPU that will be clocked at 2.0 GHz. Its 3000 mAh battery will support Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 that will make the battery charge quickly.
The cameras on smartphones have become one of the primary points of attraction, so ZTE will use 2 cameras on its rear panel; 13-megapixel + 12 megapixels, and it will also support optical zoom to capture distant images without destroying the picture quality. The front panel will feature an 8-megapixel camera.
Finger Print Scanner will be located on the device’s rear panel in round shape. ZTE Hawkeye will also feature NFC, HI-FI Audio, and a USB Type-C Port.
ZTE Hawkeye Features
ZTE Hawkeye will come with a self-adhesive back cover that can be used to fix the phone on any flat surface. The front camera of the device is capable of tracking eye movement. While reading something on the web you can use eye movement to scroll, and ZTE also claims that it can also make gameplay and navigation easier than hand movement. You can focus on the screen and move your eye in up, down, left, or right direction according to your need. Well, Samsung has used such feature in many devices, but these features don’t work well and users eventually use their hand. We will see What ZTE Hawkeye really can do when it is launched.
