Blade V7

With Mobile World Congress now officially underway, other companies are starting to announce their new smartphones as well.

ZTE has recently announced a pair of new smartphones within the same V7 family. The first is the Blade V7 (pictured above), which features a 5.2-inch full HD display with a 2.5D curved design, and a 78.2-percent screen-to-body ratio. There’s an octa-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz under the hood, paired with 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of built-in storage. It’s running Android M out of the box, and the battery is measured in at 2500mAh. The camera on the back is a 13MP PDAF shooter, with a double color flash for good measure. It also boasts ZTE’s Smart Sense gesture controls. There’s a 5MP camera on the other side. It will be available in Germany, Spain, South Africa, Ethiopia, and Mexico by summer of 2016.

Blade V7 Lite

The Blade V7 Lite shares a similar design, just with a 5-inch display, a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of built-in storage with expandable memory. It’s running Android 6.0, too, and a battery that’s measured in at 2500mAh. Interestingly enough, the Blade V7 Lite features a fingerprint sensor. It will first launch in Russia before becoming available in Mexico, Spain, Germany and Thailand by spring 2016.
