Hot on the heels of the Samsung Galaxy Grand, a lower-end Galaxy Note 2 alternative announced yesterday, ZTE is amble out a dual-core phablet of its own: the U887. According to Gizchina and the TENAA certification database, the device has a display of 5-inch 800 x 480 and using a dual-core 1.2GHz MT6577 chip with 512MB of RAM. It is also dual-band for China, sporting support for both TD-SCDMA and GSM networks. If we see the physical appearance , the U887 is not a far cry from ZTE’s higher end Nubia Z5 — at least based on the image we have seen — although it packs a 5-megapixel back camera rather than the 13MP shooter on the quad-core Z5. As with the upcoming Galaxy Grand, costing and availability info for the ZTE U887 remains MIA, but that’s sure to surface in the coming months.
