ZTE brings premium features to its mid-range Blade line

DisplayAlthough the aspect ratios may be the same, the Blade V9's screen is larger at 5.7 inches and has a better FHD+ (2160x1080) resolution. We're not sure how the USA market will receive the phone but ZTE Mobile Devices' VP of Product Strategy and Marketing Jeff Yee believes it "will provide consumers with an optimized, powerful Android experience created to allow them to do more on an entry-level smartphone than ever thought before". "The low-light camera, full screen design, and other leading features of the ZTE Blade V9 provide everything consumers need for a life of exploration, and at an affordable price".

In the camera department, the ZTE Blade V9 comes equipped with a 16MP+5MP of dual main camera setup with LED flash. The Blade V9 was unveiled alongside a cheaper, less powerful-the Blade V9 Vita. PerformanceRunning on Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box, ZTE keeps software tweaks to a minimum in a deliberate effort to make software updates quicker and easier. It is backed up by a 3,200 mAh of non-removable battery. Above that screen is a 5MP camera, and around back there's a fingerprint reader. Paired with this is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 clocked at 1.8 Ghz. Naturally, the body is downsized as well, measuring 146.8 x 68.7 x 7.6mm. The company has announced two different variants of this phone with 2GB RAM and 16GB of Internal Storage Memory and 3GB RAM and 32GB of Internal Storage memory. In terms of optics, the smartphone sports a combination of a 16-megapixel and a 5-megapixel sensors. A fingerprint scanner is included on the back of these two phones as well, and the same can be said for ZTE's logo. 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. That's the cutoff price point for the Blade line, with the more premium Axon tier running $400 and up.

The multinational telecommunications equipment and systems company ZTE Mobile Devices showed off its new mid-range series at a ceremony on Sunday (Feb 25) before the start of MWC.

But there's more: Vivo has removed the integrated speaker into the front of the display and instead the screen acts as a speaker. Another way that Vivo has decreased its bezel size is by getting rid of the top-speaker which is normally used for phone calls.

The Tempo Go appears to be focused on the U.S. market, so we're not sure whether it will even come to our shores.

With Android Go, Google strives to deliver smooth experience to users on entry-level smartphones with 512MB or 1GB RAM. The unlocked ZTE Tempo Go smartphone is priced at $80 in the United States.
