ZTE Blade APEX2 Smartphone Features NXP Software's HD Voice Solution

Stocks in this article: NXPI

EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands, May 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

NXP Software B.V. today announced that the new ZTE Blade APEX2 Android smartphone features HD compliant, wideband voice quality thanks to the incorporation of its LifeVibes VoiceExperience solution. 

The ZTE Blade APEX2 is compatible with 4G LTE networks and features a 4.5 inch 854x480px tactile screen. The APEX2 Android phone is based on the Qualcomm MSM8926 platform, a mid-range quad-core Snapdragon platform running at 1.2 GHz with an Adreno 305 GPU on board.

A key feature of the ZTE Blade APEX2 is the HD voice call quality. LifeVibes VoiceExperience applied to wideband calls enables crystal clear conversations with higher speech quality and richer, more natural tones. The APEX2 phone is fully GSMA HD Voice compliant.

Vivian Zhang is Director of the Software Department II at ZTE. Describing the HD Voice capabilities, Zhang says: "The wideband speech that LifeVibes VoiceExperience delivers is incredibly clear. Our customers will be amazed that mobile conversations can have such a high quality. From a development perspective, NXP Software was an ideal partner. They tuned their software specifically for this new model, and provided a very easy integration with the Qualcomm Hexagon DSP. The LifeVibes VoiceExperience software solution was the best HD Voice option in terms of performance and price for our new handset."

Nicolas Sauvage , Marketing & Sales Director, OEM Business Line, says: "The ZTE Blade APEX2 really does offer an incredible voice quality, especially when considering this is a mid-tier priced model. It competes very favorably with higher specification smartphones on the market, even when compared to the ones with a dedicated hardware solution. We are also very pleased to see that ZTE have been successful in marketing the APEX2 to some of Europe's most demanding network operators when it comes to cost, performance and technical compliance."

The ZTE Blade APEX2 smartphone has been recently launched in Europe. The handset is marketed by Orange as the Hi 4G, and by KPN as the Smart 400. The new model went into mass production in April 2014.
