Virgin Mobile has added the ZTE Supreme to its lineup of Android smartphones, a 4G LTE smartphone that will cost $299 with one of the carrier's no-contract plans starting at $35 a month. The device is priced to compete with the likes of the Nexus 4 (before its price drop) and comes equipped with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 1280 x 720 5-inch display, a 13MP rear-facing camera, and a 2,500mAh removable battery. Virgin is confident in the device's performance and ships it with Real Racing 3 preloaded.

The Supreme comes with Android 4.1.2 and offers a pretty stock experience out of the box - one of the perks of buying these more budget-friendly handsets. The device's colored backing is still made of plastic, but it's a tad bolder than most devices in its class.
