ZTE has just announced the ZTE ZMax Pro. A 6-inch phablet with a fingerprint scanner, huge battery, and great specs for the price of only $99 after a $100 instant-rebate.
ZTE had us over for the New York unveiling of this successor to the ZTE ZMax 2.
The ZMax will not be available on AT&T like its successor. Instead, ZTE have have a deal with Metro PCS. The phone will hit Metro PCS stores starting August 1 with pre-registration open now. The first 5000 pre-registered customers who buy the phone will be mailed a free leather flip case.
ZTE says the Zmax Pro breaks records for the best spec'd device under $100 and it's a better value than the costlier Samsung Galaxy J7 and the LG Stylo 2 because it either matches or outperforms the others on paper. Of course, you have to bear in mind that this price is for a unit locked to MetroPCS network. There is no contractual obligation for the carrier's services but for this price the phone won't take SIM cards from another carrier - not even T-Mobile's, even though T-Mobile owns the MetroPCS network and brand.
We've got hands-on photos for you to check out from the event as we take a fist look at the ZTE ZMax Pro.

They have to unlock it legally if the phone is paid for. There is no amount of time you must wait. If metro PC's is telling you that print of the FCC law and show it to them. If they refuse.. sue their ass.
