Chinese ZTE decided to keep up with the market trends and introduced a smartphone Blade V9 with a screen aspect ratio of 18: 9. The novelty is completely different from its predecessor - the designers of the company were clearly inspired by the devices of the Honor family from Huawei.
What kind of beast?
ZTE Blade V9 received an elongated 5.7-inch panel Full HD + (2160x1080 pixels), but frameless smartphone can not be named. Inside, the eight-core Snapdragon 450 chipset is used, three versions are expected: the base version with 2 GB of operative and 16 GB of internal memory, the more optimal version for 3/32 GB and the top version with 4 GB of RAM and a 64 GB flash drive. Memory cards are supported, but because of the hybrid slot, you will have to sacrifice the second sim card. The rear glass panel will "play" in the sun, as in Honor 9.
On the back there is a double camera consisting of 16 megapixel modules (with phase autofocus and aperture f / 1.8) and 5 megapixels. The front camera is 13-megapixel. For battery life, a 3200 mAh battery responds, charging via the Micro USB port. In some modifications there will be an NFC chip.
When the announcement?
Description ZTE Blade V9 accidentally published on the Spanish site of the company (the page is no longer available), so the price and timing of the release of the model there is no information. Most likely, the official announcement of the smartphone will take place at the CES 2018 in Las Vegas, which will be held from 9 to 12 January. In terms of characteristics, the appart is similar to the Chinese state budget Xiaomi Redmi 5 , and the choice in favor of one of them will depend on the cost of the novelty.
Until now, the subtle framework was the chip of the Nubia brand. The flagship Nubia Z17s, for example, the screen occupies 90.36% of the area of the front panel.
