CES in Las Vegas was a very sweet event, and we got to see the introduction of some new units. ZTE has introduced a new flagship device and it is in the Blade series. Being the first Blade line of devices to be officially announced in the United States market, they also made available Hawkeye – their crowdsourced smartphone – which can be picked at $199 on preorder.
To make sure the Blade V8 Pro can reach and serve a number of customers, it is expected that it would be unlocked for all carriers in the States. For the major selling points, there is a vertically arranged dual camera unit on the back keeping a fingerprint sensor company and designed with 5.5 inches of display material.
Going further into the innards, the Blade V8 Pro uses 3GB of RAM and pairs that to 32GB of internal storage space. Instead of going for a top of the shelf chipset, ZTE has used the Qualcomm snapdragon 625 SoC instead and we would have loved to see a bigger one. There’s an upside though, as the dual rear cameras can take videos with 4K resolution.
