Seems like ZTE is working on a new smartphone as an announced ZTE smartphone with model number ZTE Z851 has now received WiFi certification from the WiFi Alliance (WFA).
As per the Wi-Fi certification, the ZTE Z851 will support single-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n (2.4GHz) and Wi-Fi Direct connectivity features. Sadly, the listing does not show any specifications except that the device will be powered by Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system. The listing carries the certification ID WFA71784 and the date of certification being 8th May 2017.
