ZTE just unveiled another new couple of mid-range smartphones at MWC 2017 – Blade V8 Mini and Blade V8 Lite.
The Blade V8 Mini sports a 5-inch 720p display and powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 (28nm, 8×1.4GHz Cortex-A53 CPU, Adreno 505GPU). The phone comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage which can be expanded via external microSD.
The Blade V8 Mini is perfect for both selfie freaks and photography lovers. It packs a dual-camera configuration, 13MP primary sensor and a 2MP secondary one for depth sensing. You get bokeh effects with simulated apertures in the f/1.0-f/8.0 range and post-capture refocusing. For selfie, a powerful 5MP camera is fixed at the front.
The phone is powered by Android Nougat OS, 2,800mAh and it’s fitted in a body that measures 143.5x70x8.9mm. The fingerprint sensor is mounted at the back. It will be available in the Asia Pacific and Europe, though ZTE doesn’t specify when and at what price.
The Blade V8 Lite also sports a 5-inch 720p display and powered by MT6750 (one of those non-Helio MediaTeks), also come with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of inbuilt storage, can also be expanded with a microSD slot if you want to more storage.
The phone has no fancy dual-camera setup but an 8MP shooter on the back (with autofocus, at least), and a 5MP selfie snapper. The spec sheet lists a 2,500mAh battery capacity, and Android 7.0 as the OS. The Blade V8 Lite will be available in Italy, Germany, and Spain, though price remains to be detailed.
