After launching the popular Nubia brand (and thus, the Z7 series), ZTE has once again shifted its focus to the parent brand as a phone manufacturer.
The Chinese company recently launched the Blade S6 smartphone, which is powered by a Snapdragon 615 SoC, and has 2GB of RAM to make for a decent mobile computing setup. Besides that, the phone has a 5-inch 720p display and a 13 mega-pixel / 5 mega-pixel camera duo on the rear and front of the phone respectively.
The device just went on pre-sale in Malaysia, which happens to be a market often frequented by Chinese makers. The pre-orders can be made on Lazada, where the listing mentions an expected arrival date of 23rd February. It is priced at RM939, which translates to a little over US$261.
Besides having an able processor and decent camera specs, the phone boasts of an impressive design, but one which can easily be called an iPhone 6 inspiration. It also has dual SIM support along with 4G LTE, making it a strong contender in the ‘premium budget’ market as we like to call it.
