07/20/2014
Richardson, Texas – July 9, 2014 – ZTE USA, one of the fastest-growing smartphone manufacturers in the United States, today announced the availability of its portable, compact projector with hotspot, power bank and 4-inch touchscreen powered by Google’s Android™ operating system. This all-in-one device, best described as a “smart projector,” is the first of its kind to be sold anywhere in the world. After being revealed at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), ZTE’s smart projector was awarded Best Projector in PCMag.com’s Best of CES 2014. Now, it is available for purchase exclusively in the U.S.
 
“Since 1985, ZTE’s mission has been to provide affordable communication to everyone with innovation as a core driver in achieving that mission. The all-in-one projector is a pioneering product and demonstrates ZTE’s ability to deliver,” said Lixin Cheng, chairman and CEO of ZTE USA. “The ability to develop one device with a wide range of components brings the idea of affordable premium to light. Combining a projector, mobile hotspot, and power bank with the popular Android interface, in a portable, compact device not only makes sense for overall convenience but also for overall cost.”
 
ZTE’s all-in-one mini projector is smart! It uses the Android operating system, combined with a durable 4-inch touchscreen to easily navigate, stream and project presentations, movies, video, games and Google Play™ apps. It delivers even more possibilities through several connectivity options, including Wi-Fi, LTE networks, Bluetooth®, USB and HDMI ports and expandable memory of up to 64GB.
 
What is even smarter, the projector is equipped with a hotspot that supports up to eight devices and the ability to charge a multitude of devices. It cuts down on the number of devices today’s road warrior packs and saves on space at only 4.7 x 4.7 x 1.1 inches.
 
Entertainment goes where you go! The 10 to 120 inch projection display and a loud, clear built-in speaker will satisfy a group or a party-of-one. Go bigger by connecting the projector to any wireless speaker via Bluetooth.
 
“U.S. consumers can expect to see additional ZTE devices that will deliver more value and more innovation,” Cheng said. “If you don’t know the ZTE brand now, you will surely know it soon.”
 
ZTE’s smart projector will be offered exclusively from Sprint as Sprint LivePro and available for purchase in select Sprint Stores and through Sprint Business Sales, Web Sales and Telesales at 1-800-SPRINT1. With Sprint Easy Pay, well-qualified buyers can purchase Sprint LivePro with $0 down (plus tax) and 24 monthly payments of $18.75; manufacturer suggested retail price is $449.99.
 
The smart projector includes pending patents, in the United States and China that build upon ZTE’s history of leadership in patent applications based on the World Intellectual Property Organization’s (WIPO) annual patent application rankings.
