ZTE's joining the Android Go party with the Tempo Go

ZTE brings premium features to its mid-range Blade line The ZTE Blade V9 looks like every other phone, but at €269 that's just fine

That's the cutoff price point for the Blade line, with the more premium Axon tier running $400 and up. As far as the cameras are concerned, the ZTE Blade V9 packs a 16-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 8-megapixel front shooter for selfies. Aside from this, not much separate the two in terms of looks. It brings the display size down to 5.45 inches and the resolution to HD+. They're light devices, but generally feel solid in the hand. The real highlight, though, is the 5.7-inch display which has an 18:9 aspect ratio.

Apart from the changes mentioned above, the rest of the specs of the Blade V9 VITA are similar to the Blade V9, including the connectivity options, eight layered glass, battery capacity, and Android 8.1 Oreo OS. Still, some home-baked apps exist, like those for power management, and of course the camera, among others. The Blade V9 sports either 3GB or 4GB of RAM, depending on the variant you get, while the Blade V9 VITA comes with either 2GB or 3GB of RAM. Ticking away inside is a Snapdragon 450 chipset - not the most powerful around, but perfectly adequate for every day use. The Snapdragon 450 64-bit octa-core SoC fuels the Blade V9, while the Snapdragon 435 is doing the same for the Blade V9 VITA. Although, it doesn't has as many features as the regular Android OS. Of course, further testing will be needed, but our initial impressions and knowledge of the SD 450 and 435 chips doesn't have us too anxious for this mid-ranger. The Blade V9 also comes with PDAF 2.0 - a mysterious new system, which will reportedly focus 40% faster. While the V9 sports a 16 MP main camera with a 5 MP secondary, the V9 Vita steps things down slightly with a 13 MP main and 2 MP secondary. This secondary camera is responsible for picking up depth data.




According to ZTE, the cameras boast improved low-light performance and the dual-lens cameras offer better bokeh and portrait images. The dual cameras also facilitate the capture of depth-of-field portrait shots.

The sleek and effortless design of the ZTE Blade V9 features an industry leading screen-to-body ratio of 83.6%, and provides a superior user experience that allows consumers to quickly and efficiently navigate with minimal reach. The Android 8.1 phone will sell for Euro 269, and a smaller version called the Blade V9 Vita will be available for Euro 179.
