Chinese smartphone manufacturer – ZTE – has gone a long way from its origins. ZTE is now indeed one of the most recognized Chinese phone brands in the US. That’s mostly because of the more cost-effective devices they’ve been launching throughout the years, as opposed to bigger brands such as Samsung, Apple and LG.
This time is no different, ZTE are in fact releasing a new really affordable handset in the US market – it’s called ZTE Blade Vantage. The smartphone is a low-end one and it’ll be costing $49.99 on Verizon’s website.
Hardware wise, the ZTE Blade Vantage is packed with a 5-inch display with 854×480 resolution, encased in a textured plastic body. ZTE’s handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 CPU which dates back to 2014, 2GB of RAM and a relatively good sized 2500mAh capacity battery.
ZTE says that due to the presence of a low-power consumption CPU, the device should bring at least 8 hours of talk time and 13 days of standby. The phone will be running Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, which should be still fine for most users.
