ZTE is launching two budget phones with Android N

ZTE

Nearly two months after ZTE announced that the Blade V8 Pro would be coming to the US, the company is adding two new devices to the line: the Blade V8 Lite and Blade V8 Mini. Both phones will only be initially available in the Asia Pacific and Europe, including Russia, Japan, and Germany. Let’s check out the specs:

Blade V8 Mini:

ZTE
  • Snapdragon 435 processor
  • Android N
  • 13-megapixel / 2-megapixel dual rear camera system
  • Rear fingerprint sensor
  • 5-inch HD screen
  • 2GB RAM with 16GB storage
  • 2,800 mAh battery
  • Micro USB; headphone jack

Blade V8 Lite:

ZTE
  • MediaTek 6750 processor
  • Android N
  • 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera
  • Rear fingerprint sensor
  • 5-inch Full HD screen
  • 2GB RAM with 16GB storage
  • 2,500mAh battery
  • Micro USB; headphone jack

The Mini’s super cute! That red color (pictured above) reminds me slightly of the spunky iPhone 5C colors. The Mini also features a similar dual camera system to the V8 Pro, but at a cheaper price, which is cool. But really what’s commendable here is that ZTE is launching these devices with Android N. Good job, ZTE.
