MWC has officially started and we have already seen lots of smartphone manufacturers release new phones and tablets. Nokia launched the Nokia 6, Nokia 5, Nokia 3 and the classic Nokia 3310, LG unveiled the LG G6, Samsung has launched the Tab S3, Sony unveiled the Xperia XZ Premium and Huawei launched the P10 and the P10 Plus among others. And now, ZTE, which had just showcased the first 5G smartphone, has announced its low-range device, the ZTE Blade V8 Mini and Blade V8 Lite.

ZTE Blade V8 Mini

The Blade V8 Mini is a photography-centric smartphone. It is equipped with dual rear camera setup. Like most of the mid-range smartphones with dual setups, the V8 Mini houses a 13-megapixel primary rear camera and a 2-megapixel secondary rear camera. On the front, there is a 5-megapixel selfie shooter with a LED flash which will make sure you won’t need any other light.

Talking about the display, the ZTE Blade V8 Mini has a 5-inch IPS LCD display with the resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels (294 for the ppi). The device is powered by an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor with the clock speed of 1.4GHz. This is aided by 2GB of RAM and Adreno 505 GPU.

Another major selling point of the ZTE Blade V8 Mini is its software. The device will be shipped with Android v7.0 Nougat out of the box. It will also feature a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.  And considering the specifications, ZTE will probably ship the device at a low price. So, the device could actually feature some top-notch specs and still come under a budget.

Storage wise, the ZTE Blade V8 Mini comes with 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded via a microSD card. A decent 2,800 mAh Li-Ion battery backs the device.
