(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ZTE USA, the fourth largest smartphone manufacturer in the U.S. and second largest in the no-contract market*, today announced its plans for the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

From January 6 to 9, the company will showcase an array of flagship devices at CES that reflect ZTE’s 2015 focus to create new consumer experiences for connecting to the mobile internet.
“As more consumers are using connected devices in their lives, the bigger the demand is on device makers and carriers to create seamless if not more personalized experience,” said Lixin Cheng, chairman and CEO of ZTE USA. “We are making significant improvements in user experiences through our Consumer Experience Unit and consumer interests will be at the heart of everything we imagine, build and deliver in 2015.”
