Lagos - ZTE Corporation, the Chinese-based technology firm, expects to launch a series of smartphones in the country this year.

According to officials, the company will play active role in the country's mobile devices market with the introduction of devices in the second quarter of next year.

Speaking at the company's end-of year function in Lagos, Managing Director of ZTE Nigeria Limited, Brielle Gao, said the company would also focus on wireless and broadband systems and their ancillary transmission networks.

“To us Nigeria is a key market for telecommunications growth in Africa and the world. Here you have very dynamic and versatile market driven by high population of tech -trendy and unassuming end-users. With our competitive, robust, innovative solutions and technologies, ZTE is best poised for strong presence in this market,” Gao said.

Gao said ZTE Corporation, was in a good position to compete.

“ZTE a publicly-listed company posted a net profit of about US$90,5 million for the nine-month quarter ending in September 2013. Internationally, ZTE continued to focus its efforts in major and globally leading carriers, and gained strong momentum in key sectors such as enterprise and government ICT solutions, services and mobile devices, while consolidating its share of the telecommunications network infrastructure market.”
