ZTE is releasing a dual-screen smartphone

The company just announced the Blade V9 and Blade V9 Vita at the MWC 2018.

ZTE's one of those workhorse smartphone companies you don't hear much about, aside from the occasional misguided flirtation with a weird form factor, a la the dual-screen Axon M. But the Chinese handset manufacturer still powers away and manages to produce some solid handsets at bargain bin prices. These feature a metal frame sandwiched between the glass panels. The former consists of a total of eight layer, making from an impressive, if smudge-prone, surface. The phone comes with a 5.70-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 2160 pixels. It comes courtesy of LG and promises impressive brightness and viewing angles. It is powered by the same Qualcomm's Snapdragon 450 SoC as its bigger sibling.

As for specs, we're looking at Android Oreo with up to 4GB of RAM, up to 64GB of storage, and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 450 processor. All expandable through microSD. The smartphone comes with a dual camera setup with a 16-megapixel primary camera and a 5-megapixel secondary camera with LED Flash.

First, let's talk about the Blade V9. Selfies are handled by an 8MP shooter, complete with optional interpolation, up to 13MP.

Nicer camera, static design, higher price — New Samsung phone
The Galaxy S9 +, on the other hand, is expected to be priced at Rs 70,000 for the 64GB model, and Rs 79,000 for the 256GB model. For graphics, the Exynos version will use the Mali-G72 MP18 GPU while the Qualcomm versions will get to use the Adreno 630 GPU.

Other connectivity options such as VoLTE support, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi b/g/n and Global Positioning System are also available on the device.

The ZTE Blade V9 and ZTE Blade V9 Vita will launch with Android 8.1. The device is measuring 146.8 x 68.7 x 7.6mm which is relatively low compare to the original Blade V9.

The Blade V9 Vita will be offered in two variants, one with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage and one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It will also have a 5 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front-facing camera and a 2,200 mAh battery. In terms of connectivity, you get 4G VoLTE capability, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS + GLONASS, and NFC. Pricing is expected to be under USD$300. And you can expect some market-dependant features. This device packs the same design as its larger brother, but with a smaller 5.45-inch 18:9 display, lower-end Snapdragon 435 processor, and only up to 3GB of RAM.

The Tempo Go appears to be focused on the United States market, so we're not sure whether it will even come to our shores. The resolution of the front-facing camera has also been trimmed down to 5MP.
