January-bound ZTE Blade V8 leaks out of Russia, to carry dual camera setup, fingerprint scanner and more
The system of dual setup on rear cameras seem to be the in-thing with smartphone makers now and we have always seen them use the excuse of flagships and high end units to make this feature available. In a new twist of events though, ZTE is looking to get us the same kind of arrangement, and on a mid-range device. Expected to be made official at the CES event in the month of January, the device has already been leaked in Russia. For the name, we have confirmations that this mid ranger would be called the Blade V8.
The Blade V8 is expected to come as some sort of competition for the Honor 8 released by Huawei, given that this is also an affordable unit that carries a plethora of options which we would have found on high end units instead. The latter unit also has a dual camera setup of its own, so we can see where the inspiration for competition came from.
The ZTE Blade V8 has been made as premium as can be with a metal finish on the body and a home button on the front which embeds the fingerprint scanner.
The front is also home to a 5.2 inch screen with resolution of 1080p, running the snapdragon 435 chipsets under that hood. There is a 3GB of RAM paired to an internal storage space option of 32GB. The selfie unit stands at 13MP and on the back, is a rather strange arrangement of 13MP + 2MP dual sensors. Expected to run the Android Nougat 7.0 out of the box, ZTE’s own MiFlavor 4.0 would be on top.
