During the media event held at EDSA Shangri-La, ZTE Philippines announces their flagship handset Skate 4.3 Smartphone; a 4.3-Inch Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) phone that uses a 1 GHz Qualcomm processor.

I’m still verifying the exact availability of the ZTE Skate 4.3 and if it’s upgradable to any later version of Android, but the reported SRP is Php13,990, a bit pricey considering other android phones from major manufacturers are also within that price range and using the later version of Android OS.
