  • ZTE brings premium features to its mid-range Blade line

The ZTE Blade V9 and Blade V9 VITA look nearly the same on the outside (metal + glass vs metal unibody build), though the Blade V9 is larger than the Blade V9 VITA, and also superior to the "VITA" model. It will be available in a choice of black, grey, blue or gold. Included in that launch, we've got the new mid-range Blade V9 family, as well as the new Android Go-powered Tempo Go... It is priced at $220 (Rs 14,500).

"We are excited to work with ZTE and implement Android Oreo (Go edition) within our Snapdragon 210 Mobile Platform, as it means consumers get the reliability and security of an Android operating system without compromising on the experience, performance and capability on an affordable, excellent smartphone", said Nancy Fares, Vice President of Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. The storage is expandable via microSD card up to 256GB and the device comes with a rear place fingerprint scanner, just above the ZTE logo. There's a 5MP camera on the back and a 2MP on the front, with a FWVGA (480×854) display clocking in at 5.0 inches. At the front, there is an 8MP selfie snapper. Most other specs remain mostly unchanged from the bigger sibling, including fingerprint reader, VoLTE support, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi b/g/n and Global Positioning System. Though the ZTE rep I spoke with did suggest that company does see itself moving toward a headphone jack free future at some point. The Tempo Go runs Google's new Android Go OS and has 1GB of RAM coupled with 8GB of storage.


The device packs 5.7-inch, 2,220-by-1,080 LCD features 18:9 aspect ratio. Lastly, the device uses Snapdragon 435 SoC, which is significantly less powerful than the Snapdragon 450 SoC used in the Blade V9. It bears in 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory which is expandable via the microSD card slot.

In the camera department, the ZTE Blade V9 comes equipped with a 16MP+5MP of dual main camera setup with LED flash. Connectivity features include 4G VoLTE, Hybrid Dual-SIM, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, 3.5 mm audio jack, and DTS audio. Both sides are made from glass, with a sort of rainbow treated version on the back the company calls "Aurora Glass".
