The Memo features Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, but be aware -- ZTE includes its own skin on top. From the notification bar, to the odd Rubik's Cube animation for the app drawer, you won't get away from this UI.
With a 0.33-inch profile, the phone is incredibly thin. It measures 6.3 inches tall and 3.25 inches wide, and feels relatively lightweight in the hand -- for a phablet, anyway.
Sporting a whopping 5.7-inch HD display, the screen also has a 1,280x720-pixel resolution.
Another look at the Grand Memo's UI from ZTE. Other features include 16GB of memory, 1GB of RAM, and a 1-megapixel front-facing camera.
On the rear is a 13-megapixel camera that's capable of recording 1080p video and has photo features like geotagging and time lapse.
