Meet Zong M811, a 4G Smartphone Priced at Rs. 21,900

Zong, along with launching 4G service, yesterday announced its own 4G smartphone that is likely to hit stores in Pakistan with-in next few days.

The 4G enabled smartphone is billed as Zong M811 in Pakistan and is supposedly the same handset that is retailed by China Mobile (Zong’s parent group) in China and Hong Kong for 999 Yuan (equivalent to Rs. 16,800).

Company has said that Zong M811 will be available at official service centres with-in 10 days with a price tag of Rs. 21,900, that’s way more than the original price in China. Zong 4G Bundles and/or details for other payment plans (such as instalments) will be revealed at a later time.

Zong M811 supports 5 network modes (including 2G, 3G and 4G) and 10 frequencies, making it compatible with almost any GSM network in the world.

Not to mention, there is a dual-SIM variant of M811 available in China, but reportedly Zong will only ship single-SIM version of M811 in Pakistan as naturally they wouldn’t want their customers to use competition network SIMs on their phones.

Specifications suggest that this M811 boosts a 5 inch IPS display with screen resolution of 1280×720 pixels. It is powered by a Qualcomm Quad-Core processor clocked at 1.2Ghz and 1GB of RAM along with 4GB of internal memory.

M811 runs on top of Android Jelly Bean or Android 4.3, however, we aren’t sure about any customization in the OS yet.

With angular design, Zong’s M811 bears curvy corners and a thin body (8.95mm) from outside with a total weight of 133 grams.

On the back, there’s a 8MP with BSI shooter for clicking HD photos and videos with an f2.2 aperture. There’s also a LED flash for richer shots during low light conditions. Additionally, you get a 1.3MP front camera for video calling.

Zong M811 sports a 2500mAh battery, which we believe should be enough for 14-18 hours of normal usage on a 4G network.

Other than extremely low internal memory, we will term Zong’s M811 a decent device. Flow of hardware and its compatibility with software is something we can’t comment without using the device.

We assume that Zong will introduce more 4G phones in coming months as there are not many low-end 4G devices in the market, a challenge that Zong is likely to face for 4G customer acquisitions. Not to mention, most of the 4G phones are usually high-end devices that are priced at least Rs. 40,000.

We also think that Zong may re-adjust the price of M811 in Pakistan since exactly the same device is sold at Rs. 16,800 in China as compared to its Rs. 21,900 price tag in Pakistan.

We will bring you more updates on Zong M811, but meanwhile check below the promo of Zong M811:

    chin cho yoo yoo chon cho pay ^_^

  • Radz

    4gb internal memory is too low in 2014.. atleast it should have been 8gb so we can freely install big apps.

    Other networks will follow ufone and zong and will release their own sets. So we should wait and choose the best one.

    • Arsalan Shah

      Why would OTHER networks launch a 4G handset? ONLY Zong and Warid have a 4G license, and I seriously doubt Warid could do that seeing the past…

  • Geekpk

    They should sell at same price as in China or they better add 3 months of free 4G if they are charging 21,900 for this phone.

  • 21,900 is too high.
    Then you should go for Huawei Honor 4 Play 4G

  • Taha Najam

    meh china and secondly android.

    • Inam

      iPhone + iProducts fully built in China, and for android, well you need brains for that to use. What’s the point?

      • Taha Najam

        Are you seriously comparing the quality of Apple products with this POS? As for Android, I just don’t like it. I don’t like iOS either. Too redundant.

        • Saad Durrani

          At least, this one won’t bend.

          • Jaguar

            Haha, Good one @Saad Durrani!

        • Saad

          Too redundant? You need a customized OS with your name? :P

        • Inam

          Its not your fault you’ve always used some Samsung toy for an android phone.
          For REAL ANDROID QUALITY, use SONY Flagships! Or even Nexus Flagships!

  • Atifsh

    many many many lte devices available in the market, they are used devices but are way cheaper and better than this.
    just sayin :)

    • SSA

      All used and refurbished 4G handsets are not comparable with Pakistan’s 1800 4G band.
      So please check it should have LTE band 3 or LTE 1800 MHz frequency before making any decision.

      • Atifsh

        zong own site listed all the handsets that are compatible, though it is wise to check before you buy.

        according to Zong im seeing each and every motorola and LG device available is listed.
        i got the sim, but my area is not 4g yet so will test in the area its available here in karachi later.

  • Hassan Salman Dita

  • panjgoori

    why not get Xperia SP 4G model which is also available at same price or may be a 1000 more. its more durable phone with 8 gb internal storage.

    • Muhammad Ashraf

      i bought this device last saturday but it was faulty, device itself doesnt look goods if you have in hands, on illustration it looks nice

    • Waqas

      Its cost is 32000 rupees which is not comparable with much cheaper M811.

      • panjgoori

  • Eli Ehsan

    • Waqas
