ZTE Welcomes the Festive Season with a Kis – Smartphone in Snow White


London, UK - ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, today launched its record-breaking Kis smartphone in white. Just in time for Christmas, this hugely successful feature-packed handset will be available in a crisp snow white finish, as well as the original black, on Wednesday, October 24th.


Everyone enjoys a kiss at Christmas and now PAYG customers can pucker up for a handset that’s more stylish than ever and still packed with the same incredible features including a 3.5 inch touch screen, an 800MHz processor, a 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus and a 2GB micro SD card. Having exclusively launched the ZTE Kis in June this year, Virgin Media is now offering both colours for just £49.99* plus 12 months free data** for all of its PAYG customers worth up to £60.


"Given our successful track record of mobile launches with Virgin Media, we wanted to develop our relationship with them by introducing another exclusive smartphone – the ZTE Kis in white. It is targeted at young, style-conscious people, who want the rich functionality of an Android device for an affordable price,” said Chris Edwards, European Marketing and Business Development Director, ZTE.


Jamie Heywood, Director of Mobile at Virgin Media said: “The ZTE Kis is a great value Android device that has been one of Virgin Media’s best-selling prepay phones since its arrival earlier this year, so we’re delighted to once again be able to launch a new and exclusive colour just for our customers. We know how much our customers love to stay connected no matter where they are, especially at Christmas, which is why we’re adding even more value to this handset by giving our customers free data for a whole year.”
