Three new ZTE phones from the ZTE Blade line are now official in the Russian market, namely the Balde X3, X5 and the X9.
The ZTE Blade X3 (top) is an 8990 Rubles ($138) phone with a 5-inch 720p display, a quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor paired with 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM and a rather large capacity 4000mAh battery. The Blade X3 comes with an 8 mega-pixel rear camera and a 2 mega-pixel front.
Moving on to the ZTE Blade X5 (above), it costs 10990 Rubles ($169) and features more or less the the same specs as the Blade X3, with the only difference being the front camera which is 8 mega-pixel in resolution in this case. Interestingly, the fingerprint sensor that you see on the rear of the phone is actually NOT a fingerprint sensor but a shutter button instead!
