The ZTE Grand X 3 features a 5.5-inch 720p resolution display, a Snapdragon 210 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and support for expandable storage via its microSD card slot. It also comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3080mAh battery. Surprisingly, the Grad X 3 is equipped with a USB Type-C connector, something that’s usually reserved for today’s high-end smartphones. Lastly, it will run Google’s Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system.

The ZTE Grand X3 will be available sometime this month through Cricket Wireless in the US for only $130 with no contract.
