ZTE dials up mid-range Blade V9 and Blade V9 Vita

ZTE brings premium features to its mid-range Blade line

That doesn't get you a lot of bang, or a particularly snazzy design, but this still has the honor of being the world's first Android Go phone powered by a Qualcomm processor.

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 ZTE Blade V9 is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM.

The phone is powered by an octa-core processor and comes in two builds: 2GB RAM with 16GB storage, 4GB RAM with 64GB storage. ZTE's Blade series is a tier under the top-of-the-line Axon series, and as such garners somewhat of a mid-range distinction. The 5.7-inch FHD+ screen with 18:9 aspect ratio makes it ideal for viewing photos, watching videos, playing video games, and browsing the web. The dual lens camera setup with 16MP sensors also comes with 6P lens, PDAF 2.0 for faster focus speed by 40%, and larger aperture. Selling for €269 and €179, respectively, the Blade V9 and V9 Vita might be attractive options for the sub-€300 price range. There are also dual-cameras on the rear with a special sensor dedicated to low-light.

And then there's the ZTE Blade V9 Vita, a slightly toned down version of the V9 Blade. The 8 MP camera on the front is flawless for taking selfies. ZTE USA will be selling the ZTE Tempo Go for only $79.99. Lastly, the device uses Snapdragon 435 SoC, which is significantly less powerful than the Snapdragon 450 SoC used in the Blade V9. The Chinese smartphone maker has also announced Temp Go as its first Android Go smartphone. The device already runs Android 8.1 Oreo.

The ZTE Tempo Go is an entry-level smartphone. Although, it doesn't has as many features as the regular Android OS. At the front, there is an 8MP selfie snapper.

The Android Oreo-powered ZTE Tempo Go will be sold unlocked in the United States with support for GSM networks. "The ZTE Tempo Go will provide consumers with an optimized, powerful Android experience created to allow them to do more on an entry-level smartphone than ever thought before". The device houses Snapdragon 210 SoC, 1GB RAM, and 8GB of internal storage.
