Straight Talk has started offering its first Verizon-compatible LTE smartphone, the ZTE Rapido LTE. A user has spotted the phone in Walmart store. The Rapido LTE (Z932C) hasn’t been listed on the carrier’s website yet but obviously will be soon. Straight Talk ZTE Rapido LTE costs $179.88, according to the image from Walmart store and to the Walmart’s website, where the phone is listed but out of stock.
In addition to 4G LTE connectivity, the ZTE Rapido LTE features a 4.5-inch (720×1280) display protected by Corning Gorilla glass, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and microSD card slot for additional memory expansion up to 32GB. It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS and has 8-megapixel main camera with 1080p video capture and 1-megapixel front-facing camera. The Rapido LTE has Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi and GPS and its removable 2070 mAh battery provides up to 7 hours of talk time and up to 9 days of standby time.
ZTE Rapido LTE can be paired with Straight Talk’s unlimited prepaid service plans. The $45 unlimited plan includes unlimited talk, text and data with first 3GB at high speeds. The $60 unlimited international plan includes everything that $45 plan has in addition to 400 minutes of calling mobile numbers in Mexico, unlimited calls to 15 unique international landline numbers per month in 37 countries and international calling to landline and mobile numbers in Canada, China and India. Straight Talk throttles data to 2G speeds (around 64 Kbps) when high speed data limit is reached in a month.
Straight Talk is the second Verizon MVNO to start offering LTE. After Verizon has allowed access to LTE to its own prepaid customers in June this year, it’s been expected that its MVNOs will receive it as well. So far, only Page Plus Cellular has gained it but LTE speeds are limited to 3.5 Mbps down and 1 Mbps up. Now that Straight Talk is in the process of offering it, it shouldn’t be long before other MVNOs join.
