ZTE has pulled the wraps off its latest – seemingly China specific – smartphone, the Redbull. And while it doesn’t give you wings and may well end up the subject of a lawsuit, it does offer pretty decent value for money. Packing a 5-inch 720p display and a 13MP Sony CMOS camera sensor, the Redbull will cost the equivalent of just $ 135.

Other specs of note are a quad-core Snapdragon (MSM8926 or MSM8928) CPU, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of onboard storage with microSD card expansion and a removable 2400mAh battery. The Redbull also comes in an ‘Energy’ version – you can almost smell the lawsuit from here – which bumps the RAM to 2GB and onboard storage up to 8GB. This races the price slightly to around $ 160.

Oh, and it comes in a variety of colors, including some quite bright yellow and green options. It’s gone on sale immediately in China, but there’s no indication if we’ll ever see it anywhere else. And if we did it’d likely have a different name.
