ZTE, a leading global mobile device maker, today announced that the ZTE Smart Projector (Spro) has been recognized as the ‘Best Mobile Enabled Consumer Electronics Device’ Award at Mobile World Congress 2015. The award was presented by the GSMA during the 20th Global Mobile Awards, held at the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona.
The ZTE Spro is the world’s first all-in-one smart portable projector. Designed to provide up to eight users with anytime Wi-Fi anywhere access at 4G LTE speed, the Android-based smart projector with built-in storage and expandable Micro-SD and USB port can project 120-inch images and videos from a variety of convenient inputs.
Shortlisted alongside the Phorus PS5 Speaker, Harman Kardon Wireless HD Audio System, Telekom Austria M2M AVUS Reviermanager and SlimPort’s NANO.CONSOLE, the ZTE Spro was selected by the judges due to its appeal to both business and consumer users and its category-defining combination of portable projection and mobile connectivity.
On presenting ZTE with its first ever Global Mobile Award in the category, Jon Fredrik Baksaas read comments from the judges affirming the ZTE Spro is “a nifty and useful collaboration device for the home or office, handy in almost any use-case scenario for small groups.”
“We are delighted to have won this award at Mobile World Congress; a show that we know to be extremely competitive” said Steven Mao, Vice President, ZTE Corporation & Head of Marketing, ZTE Mobile Devices, when receiving the award. “The ZTE team showed courage and vision to create an entirely new product category with the ZTE Spro. Our design and engineering teams have created a device that blends technology with practicality to offer consumers new ways to stay connected, be entertained, and be productive – all at the same time. Innovation is in our DNA and can be seen across all our recent innovations, such as the industry’s first system-level voice control in the Star 2 and eye print biometric unlocking technology in the Grand S3. We are shaping the future of human interaction with smart devices, and it is a proud day for ZTE indeed.”
On the show floor at MWC (Hall 3 Stand 3F30), ZTE will be demonstrating the second iteration of its award-winning Smart Projection technology, the SPRO2, which is due to launch in May this year.
