What is Project CSX?

Project CSX stands for Crowd Sourced X, where "X" is any mobile device you want ZTE to build next. Originally announced at CES 2016 and kicked off on August 3rd, ZTE is currently holding the final voting stage now through October 19th to determine which device consumers around the world want in their hands.

The final device chosen solely by consumers has been announced  and will be unveiled in January at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017.

The Winner:

Congratulations to Z-Community member Arshad and his Eye Tracking, Self-Adhesive phone concept for winning Project CSX!  With over 176 countries voting throughout the competition ZTE is thrilled you have chosen to be a part of this industry-disrupting process and we look forward to bring this eye tracking, self-adhesive phone to market in 2017

The Finalists:

Choice A: Eye Tracking, Self-Adhesive Phone

A self-adhesive back allows the phone to be added to a wall or flat surface for hands-free use, and other users will not be able to peer in as the phone has split screens, so only the main user sees the intended content.



 

 

Choice B: Optional Intelligent Covers with Stock Android Smartphone

Four initial covers to be introduced for this phone are: 1) E-Ink flip cover, 2) Slide out gamepad cover, 3) Stylus cover and 4) an Android PC dock cover. Consumers can customize cases not just for appearance, but for functionality that makes sense to each individual.

 

 

 

  Choice C: Powerglove
