Earlier this week, we were shown some of the future ‘Mango’ Windows Phone devices, however predictably there wasn’t much information about the devices released.
Yesterday we learned that the first Mango phone would be released in August, the Fujitsu IS12T comes with a 3.7 inch screen and is waterproof, however there isn’t many other details known.
Today, Dr. Luo Zhong Sheng, General Manager of Mobile Communications at ZTE gave us a better look at the upcoming ZTE device that will also be running Mango out of the box. The image he posted on Weibo (Chinese version of Twitter) seems to be quite a lot different than the image taken at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference 2011 last week. He also mentioned that whilst ZTE produce Android devices already, he believes Windows Phone will eventually outperform Android in terms of market share.
At this point, it’s known that ZTE will release multiple Mango devices that will be released around a similar time. Additionally Zhong Sheng suggested that the devices produced by ZTE will be tailored for a worldwide consumer base.
Mango is looking promising and the new set of phones make the excitement grow even quicker. As the update is apparently bringing front facing camera support, it’s likely we’ll see such feature on some of the upcoming devices, for now however the images being provided show no signs of such a feature. At this point however, it's probably expected to see it as Microsoft would almost be officially announcing front facing cameras coming this fall. As the devices are still in development we may see some more prominent features in future leaks.
