Zong Launches 3 LePhone 4G Smartphones in Pakistan

Zong 4G, has collaborated with China-based LePhone to launch one of the most affordable 4G smartphones in Pakistan. It must be mentioned that LePhone is not the same company as LeEco, which is also an emerging Chinese brand.

Under this partnership, a trio of LePhone smartphones have been launched at an event at Zong 4G’s flagship Service Center in Lahore. With this phone launch, Zong aims to enable everyone to make use of fast 4G speeds.

Earlier this year, Zong 4G had announced their plans to upgrade 100% of its network to 4G, taking the total number of 4G sites to 10,500.

Currently, Zong 4G provides 4G connectivity to over 300 cities of Pakistan and is aggressively expanding its footprint in both the urban and rural areas of the country. Introduction of affordable 4G handsets by LePhone in collaboration with Zong 4G will further accelerate the transition of 2G & 3G users to 4G and increase 4G adoption in the country.

Following 3 smartphones were released by Zong 4G  and are available at all of its outlets starting 21st of July, 2017.

LePhone W11

Don’t go for the naming scheme here as LePhone W11 comes with better features compared to the other two. It is still an entry level device with a small screen and a dated processor.

W11 somewhat makes up for it with its good build quality and decent camera performance.

LePhone W12

Despite the name, LePhone W12 is actually cheaper and a slightly lower end device compared to the W11. It shares almost all of the W11’s specs, however, it misses out on the fingerprint scanner and the slightly larger battery.

Sans the fingerprint scanner, you won”t notice any difference between the two devices.

LePhone W7 Plus

W7 Plus is the cheapest of the lot and rightly so. While it shares the processing package, there’s less storage space on the device.

The smaller battery and weaker camera also make space for the price cut.

However, even at less than Rs. 9,000, it still supports Zong’s 4G network.
