Speaking to Reuters in an intervew, ZTE’s Lv Qianhao said that the United States and China will be the target for their smartphone sales thereby expanding to more areas.

Almost all of ZTE’s smartphones are powered by Google Inc’s Android operating system, although the company is gradually introducing more Windows Phones globally. It launched Windows Phone smartphones in the United States in the second half of last year.
