ZTE dials up mid-range Blade V9 and Blade V9 Vita


ZTE USA will be selling the ZTE Tempo Go for only $79.99.

As expected, ZTE has a couple of new phones to showcase at MWC 2018, and also as expected, the already long overdue Axon 9 is not one of them. Below are the detailed specifications of each device. With the Blade V9, ZTE is upping the value with a brand new design, updated specs, and Android Oreo out of the box. However, the bezels are quite thick, like that of the Google Pixel 2 XL. Paired with this is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 clocked at 1.8 Ghz.

The ZTE Blade V9 Vita runs Android 8.1 and is powered by a 3200mAh. Low-light photography in general should be particularly improved on the V9 as ZTE has opted for a large f/1.8 aperture to let in more light. It also comes with a dual camera and a finger print scanner. As for the selfies, the device has an 8MP sensor above the display.

The Blade V9 and V9 Vita once again reiterate the transformation of the mid-range segment to one with a premium built and well-studded models that could pass for flagships. The smartphone is equipped with 4GB of RAM, and up to 64GB of storage. The pricing of the ZTE Blade V9 has not been revealed yet. The real highlight, though, is the 5.7-inch display which has an 18:9 aspect ratio. The front camera supports Faceb detection for unlocking and waking.

Powered by a Snapdragon 450 processor, the Blade V9 is obviously no Samsung Galaxy S9 challenger. The phone packs 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded. The smartphone is based on the lighter version of Android, the Android Go. According to the company, the camera can capture magical images in all situations even in low-light scenarios. Although, it doesn't has as many features as the regular Android OS. The smartphone is fitted with a 5-inch display with a screen resolution of 480×854 pixels. The cameras also gets a downgrade with a 13-megapixel plus 2-megapixel rear setup at the back, and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. The former will cost €269, while the later will go for €299.
