                              NEW PRODUCT RELEASE

ZTC Telecommunications Plc (AIM:ZTC), a fast growing China based domestic
designer, assembler and marketer of mobile phone handsets, today announces to
the market the  introduction of its latest model, the ZT2588.

This innovative new phone is the first domestic wide-screen handset in China,
and it's Quarter Video Graphics Array ('QVGA') enables improved graphics and
image presentation, which, together with a hi-fi speaker system, presents one of
the best video phones, at its price point,  currently on the Chinese market.

Key handset features:

  • 2.5 inch QVGA LCD screen, business-handset-style;
  • Smart Power Save - light sensors for different environments; automatically
    adjusts the brightness of the LCD screen to surrounding light to save power;
  • 2 speakers - provides hi-fi effect;
  • 2 SIM cards - ease of switching between two cards effectively reduces
    roaming charges;
  • 2 cameras - ability to take photos from the front and back of the phone.
  • Bluetooth and Touch Display;
  • T Flash Card memory (512M upgradeable to 1 Gig) has improved sound quality
    and ability to store more music and video

CEO Mr. Charles Huang commented:

'The ZT2588, the first ZTC business-handset-style, is characterized with unique
design which brings you a wide screen with improved graphics, outstanding
functionality and sound quality at a reasonable price. Following on from the
success of the ZT3158 model, we believe the ZT2588 will anticipate the latest
trends of the Chinese market, which has shown tremendous growth, particularly in
ZTC's key target regions of the rural North, West and South. Our research and
development road testing and initial distributor interest in the ZT2588 has been
very encouraging, and we are confident that this handset will enhance the
awareness and value of the ZTC brand.'
