There’s sure to be a several new phones announced at CES next month, and it looks like ZTE will be responsible for at least one of them.
A new ZTE phone named the Blade V8 has leaked out. An official announcement for the device briefly appeared on ZTE’s own website before being pulled down, but because this is the internet, a cached version is still available.
ZTE’s announcement confirms that the Blade V8 offers dual rear cameras, with one 13-megapixel shooter and a second 2-megapixel camera for capturing depth information. This will help you to add bokeh effects to your images, and ZTE touts that the Blade V8 can also capture 3D photos that can be viewed through 3D glasses.
Other confirmed features of the ZTE Blade V8 include a 5.2-inch 1920x1080 display with 2.5D glass and a fingerprint sensor below that display. Inside the Blade V8’s 7.7mm-thick metallic body lives an octa-core Snapdragon 435 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and NFC.
On the software side, the Blade V8 runs Android 7.0 Nougat below ZTE’s customer MiFavor 4.0 user interface.
At the same time that ZTE leaked its own device, Russian site Hi-Tech.Mail.Ru posted hands-on photos of the device. The images give us a better look at the Blade V8’s metallic body, include the 3.5mm headphone jack up top, and what appears to be a 13-megapixel front-facing camera.
We’ll have to wait until CES 2017 kicks off until the ZTE Blade V8 is officially official, but so far it looks like an interesting device. While it may not have the most high-end specs, it does offer premium features like a metallic body, fingerprint reader, and dual rear cameras, and so the Blade V8 could be a good option for folks that want higher-end features at an affordable price.
