CES 2017 has already begun and we have seen quite a host of manufacturers take this platform to unveil their electronic and electrical goods alike. Joining in the increasingly growing list is ZTE as they have just officially announced a new soon-to-launch smartphone which would be totally funded by the community.

Sometime last year, this OEM commenced a campaign over at the popular crowd-funding site in US, Kickstarter, with a project with the moniker CSX. Now, they have officially unveiled this handset over at CES where it was named ZTE Hawkeye.


The smartphone would be featuring a 5.5 inch Full HD touchscreen display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Above the display there is a front camera which aids the sense-eye feature that this device is graced with. This implementation allows users to navigate through the phone and scroll up and down just with the movement of their eyes.


To make this feature more enjoyable, the manufacturers have also added a removable adhesive back cover to the Hawkeye which would allow it to stick to the wall for hands free action for users. This in addition to the Android Nougat 7.0 software it should ship with really proves that this handset would be one worth the wait.

Also making an appearance is a fingerprint scanner at the back panel of the device alongside the trending dual-camera technology. That’s all the manufacturers have dished out as the phone is still in the works and we still do not know when it would officially go live.


The handset is up for pre-order right now as it is customary for gadgets under Kickstarter as received cash goes a long way in making these devices a success. The pre-sale price is set at $199 over at the funding page nonetheless we believe this price is only for early birds as the price would surely go up once it is officially made available.
