ZTE have today announced their Blade S7 phone, a device that they claim is perfect for selfie lovers.
Before the launch of the S7, the Blade range was made up of the S6 phones which launched earlier in the year and came with hot hardware and low-pricing even for customers not in China.
The new ZTE Blade S7 has an all new body design and updates features to make it better looking and more functional in use. Some of the hardware features include a 5-inch FHD 1920 x 1080 Super Retina display, with 178 degree viewing angles, 2.5D glass and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The same curved laminated glass is used on the rear too, creating a glass, alloy, glass sandwich.
ZTE are most proud of the fact the ZTE Blade S7 comes with front and rear 13 mega-pixel cameras. We’ve seen this before but on the S7 the front camera also benefits from PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) a feature we think is unique to the Blade S7.
