ZTE has rather been dull lately but this is going to change in 2018. The ZTE Blade V9 smartphone has been listed online and is expected to be announced soon.
The Blade V9 is first ZTE smartphone to feature 5.7-inch 18:9 aspect ratio display with FHD+ resolution. Aesthetically speaking, the handset packs in double side glass design, which is highly reflective.
The side bezels have been slimmed down while the top and bottom sides are prominent. There is no physical home button. For quick unlocking, the Chinese OEM has placed a fingerprint sensor at the back side.
Talking about the specifications, the Blade V9 features in octa-core Snapdragon 450 SoC and comes with 2GB/3GB/4GB RAM options with 16GB/32GB/64GB internal memory. There is a 16MP + 5MP dual cameras at the back coupled with 13MP selfie shooter at the front.
