ZTE certainly launches some of the most interesting phones in the flagship market. We have the ZTE Axon series which brings innovative features like in-display cameras, and also devices that come under Nubia, one of ZTE’s “sister” brands. When it comes to the low-end and mid-range segments, ZTE offerings are modest. These modest budget devices usually come under the ZTE Blade series. According to a set of leaks, the company prepared a new budget smartphone under the ZTE Blade V40 specs. The device has leaked in the wild, confirming its design and some of its key specifications.
ZTE Blade V40 specifications
The ZTE Blade V40 design screams the low-end segment. We have the usual waterdrop notch, that became mandatory in low-end phones. The screen is surrounded by fairly thick side bezels and a huge chin at the bottom. Considering the phone’s approach, we are pretty sure this is an LCD screen. According to the leak, this is a 6.6-inch panel, and by our experience, it will have HD+ resolution.

The ZTE Blade V40 will boast the 12nm Unisoc T616 SoC. The phone will be paired with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of Internal Storage. In terms of software, the phone will run Android 12 with MyOS 12 running atop. We don’t know if the phone will get an Android 13 update.
The ZTE Blade V40 has two large circles at the back for the camera setup. There is a 50 MP main camera, and two decorative sensors for depth and macro shooting. The phone will draw its power from a 4,500 mAh battery. There is no mention of charging, but in the best scenario, it will get 18W charging. Anyway, since this is a low-end phone, it’s better to not have high expectations on charging.
As per the leak, the ZTE Blade V40 will cost BDT 17,999 in Bangladesh, that’s about $170. The announcement will likely take place in February.
