A new ZTE smartphone has passed through TENAA, which is the Chinese regulator that passes smartphones for certification in the country. The S3003 is an entry level device that comes with one striking feature, one that we do not expect in this age of mobile technology. The S3003 comes without a rear camera.A lack of a rear primary camera is very rare for smartphones. Some BlackBerry devices ship to enterprises without a rear camera for security purposes, but retail smartphones without a shooter are non-existent. Sure, we can argue that this is as entry level as it gets, so taking off the camera would make this device completely bare bones and probably even more affordable. However, a camera module costs at the most $10 at the budget end, so how much of this could be cost cutting on ZTE?s part? Elsewhere the S3003 gets a 5-inch 720p screen, a pixel density of 294ppi, a quad core 1.5GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, and LTE connectivity.
