USB Type-C port at the bottom
The device is ZTE's first smartphone in the US that uses USB Type-C -- a type of connector port that promises to be faster and more efficient than the common Micro-USB port. It's also reversible so you'll always plug it in the right way.
An 8-megapixel camera
On the back is an 8-megapixel camera that can record 720p video, while a 2-megapixel shooter on the front takes care of selfie and webchatting needs.
Running Android Lollipop
The phone has a 5.5-inch LCD display with a 1,280x720-pixel resolution. It also runs Google Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
A look at the right
The Grand X 3 measures 6.07 by 2.99 by 0.37 inches and weighs 6 ounces. Here on its right you can see its volume rocker and power key.
A battery with Quick Charge Technology
The device is powered by a 1.3GHz Snapdragon 210 quad-core processor and a 3,080mAh removable battery.
Not just for the marquee handsets
With its USB Type-C port, the midlevel ZTE Grand X 3 is a signal that the standard isn't just reserved for flagship phones anymore. For more information, click here for more of CNET's coverage of CES 2016.
