ZTE, a provider of telecommunications equipment and network offerings, has launched its Android-based handset Lutea, which is available through German network operator E-Plus.

The co-branded Lutea handset is an Android Smartphone that provides a capacitive 3.5inch multi touchscreen with 480×800 megapixels.

The handset features an MP3 player and FM-radio, a 5-megapixel camera, 3GSM, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

In addition, the phone also supports a data capacity of up to 32GB, and comes with a 2GB micro SD card inbox and in-built memory of 300 MB.

The company said that the launch of Lutea is the first ZTE-branded handset in the German market, and it has entered into agreements on co-branded and own branded handsets in some European countries.

The mobile smartphone known as Blade in other countries has been made available in more than 20 high-end markets including the UK, France, Finland, Norway, Turkey, Hungary and Japan.
