Phones are taking over the world…literally. The ZTE Star 2 is an amazing device that is sadly only headed to the Chinese market, but we’re going hands on to make you want things you can’t have.
The most amazing feature is its voice control. Keep in mind that there are very few phones out there made in China that are able to be commanded using English. There are simple commands like “play music,” “open camera,” or “exit” to close your current page and much more. Still not amazed? Just by lifting the phone to your ear, it will ask you who you want to call.
When it comes to hardware, it has a 1080p 5-inch display. It has a 13 megapixel rear camera with a noise cancelling microphone and a two-tone flash. On the front is a 5 megapixel wide-angle camera. Both front and rear camera can alternate through voice control. Under the hood it sports a 64-bit compatible Octa-Core MediaTek processor at 2.5GHz with 2GB of RAM.
There is an aluminum band that runs along the border of the handset that gives it a sleek finish and is just 6.9 mm thin. On one side, there are two slots for a SIM card and an expandable SD card. On the other side is the power button, along with a volume adjuster that has a unique texture to it. Speakers are on both sides of the phone. On the bottom, there is a headphone jack and a micro-USB port. There is 16 GB of internal storage already built in and 2 GB of RAM.
The ZTE Star 2 hasn’t been announced when it will be released in the United States. Meanwhile, it may come around at $400.
