It will further sport a 5.7-inch screen just like the G6 Play with a resolution of 2160 × 1080 pixels. There is also a dual-camera setup with a 16+5MP sensors combination as well as a 13MP selfie shooter. ZTE Blade V9 is packed with a 3200mAh battery and runs on Android 8.0 Oreo.
Though both devices come with slightly different chipsets, they both use the same octa-core Cortex-A53 processors. However, while the SD450 in the ZTE Blade V9 clocks, the SD430 in the G6 Play manages 1.4GHz. Both devices run on Android 8.0 Oreo although the Blade V9 uses 8.1 while the G6 Play comes with 8.0.
