ZTE may be busy with the rumored launch of the ZTE Axon 30 featuring the company’s second-gen in-display camera. However, it still finds some time to bring a new duo of mid-range smartphones under its ZTE Blade V30 series. The new devices were revealed today as ZTE Blade V30 and ZTE Blade V30 Vita. The first market to receive the duo of handsets is Mexico, the new smartphones bring competitive specs, big batteries, and decent cameras. Let’s dive into their specs.
ZTE Blade V30 and V30 Vita specifications
The ZTE Blade V30 packs a 6.67-inch Full HD+ display with a punch-hole cutout that houses a 16 MP selfie camera. The 30 Vita has a larger 6.8-inch display but drops the resolution to 1,640 x 720 pixels (HD+). This is a little bit strange. After all, the device with the larger screen gets a lower resolution which will result in a lower pixel-per-inch density. Anyway, the Blade V30 Vita packs a waterdrop notch cutout with an 8 MP selfie camera.
In terms of optics, the ZTE Blade V30 packs a primary 64 MP camera which is accompanied by an 8 MP ultrawide snapper. The setup is completed with a 5 MP macro camera and a 2 MP depth helper. The Vita opts for a 48 MP primary shooter and retains the 5 MP macro and 2 MP depth cameras. The Blade V30 packs an Octa-Core Unisoc Tiger T618 chipset.
This chip features two ARM Cortex-A75 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores along with a Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. This chip offers the same level of performance as an Helio G80 SoC. The device is paired with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of Internal Storage. You can expand it via a microSD card slot. When it comes to the Blade V30 Vita it sports an unnamed Octa-Core chipset clocked at 1.6 GHz.
Both smartphones come with a huge 5,000mAh battery. However, only the regular Blade V30 sports 18W fast charging. Moreover, both handsets run Android 11 straight out of the box. However, ZTE’s MiFavor UI will be running on top.
Pricing & Availability
In terms of pricing and availability, the ZTE Blade V30 comes in Black and Gradient colorways and costs MXN 5,099. That is roughly $256 which isn’t really cheap for a mid-range smartphone with an Helio G80-like chipset. Anyway, this probably has to do with the regional pricing. The pricing for the ZTE Blade V30 Vita is yet to go, official. The global availability for both handsets is yet to be disclosed by the company.
