Details of upcoming ZTE Blade V10, Blade V10 Vita, and Blade L130 appear online
ZTE’s notable releases for last year remained restricted to quirky devices from its Nubia sub-brand, like the dual-display Nubia X. This year, the company plans to release a host of new devices, as details of three of its upcoming budget and mid-range devices in the Blade series have appeared online. Let’s take a look at the ZTE Blade V10, ZTE Blade, V10 Vita, and ZTE Blade L130.
ZTE Blade V10
According to the listing, the ZTE Blade V10 will come with a 6.3-inch FHD+ LCD. You can spot a centered front camera above the display, which coupled with the slim speaker grill and the general trend in current smartphone design, indicates that the phone will sport a waterdrop style notch. The listing showcases a phone that appears to have a glass back panel and a fingerprint scanner is also visible on the back panel. Device dimensions are noted to be 158 x 75.8 x 7.5 mm, and the device will weigh 154g.
The Blade V10 will come with an octa-core SoC, 4GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB RAM and storage options, as well as expandability options of another 256GB for storage. The phone will also sport a 3,100 mAh battery and a headphone jack. The camera setup on the device will consist of a 16MP + 5MP dual camera system on the back and a 32MP front camera, which should be interesting. The phone will also launch with Android Pie.
ZTE Blade V10 Vita
The ZTE Blade V10 Vita has been spotted on the Google Play Console Device Catalog.
The Blade V10 will be a budget smartphone, primarily coming to Mexico, which can be inferred from the “telcel” branding on the device render. The device is sporting a Spreadtrum 9863A SoC, which is an octa-core SoC consisting of 8x Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up to 1.6GHz. The GPU on the device is the Imagination Tech PowerVR GE8322, clocked at 550MHz. The phone will sport a display resolution of 720 x 1520. Interestingly, despite the fairly budget specifications, the phone will launch with Android Pie out-of-the-box. Other OEMs can definitely learn something from ZTE here.
ZTE Blade L130
The ZTE Blade L130 has been spotted at FCC’s database. This is a squarely budget device, as is visible from the ordinary pre-2018 looks and basic feature set.
Some of the key features that we could discern are the existence of a microUSB port on the bottom of the device, a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top, and microSD card expandability. The phone also comes with a 1,400 mAh battery.
More details about the device are currently unknown, but we expect this to be a low-key device to serve basic needs as a starter or secondary burner phone.
