ZTE Blade makes an appearance ahead of CES 2017 reveal

CES 2017 is just a few days away, and while we wait for Daniel to drag himself through New Year and off to Las Vegas, we can sit back and read about ZTE’s latest Blade release, thanks to today’s leak, and it’s quite a leak; not just some sketchy details, but a full press release that was published, and quickly pulled, but not before the details were noted down.

ZTE’s Blade V8 has been outed, with rather awfully photoshopped promotional images in tow. However, once we put those aside, here’s what we know.

The ZTE Blade V8 will feature a 5.2-inch FHD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage. It will run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, with ZTE’s MiFavour 4.0 UI skin overlay.

The Blade V8 features a dual-camera setup, with a 13MP primary camera and 2MP camera for depth information. Further, the ZTE Blade will be able to shoot quasi-3D images with the two cameras.

Last but not least, the Blade V8 will feature a fingerprint sensor in the home button on the front of the device, allowing users to unlock the phone in just 0.3 seconds, as well as the ability to assign shortcuts or functions.

We don’t know much more than this, and there’s definitely no mention on battery, but what we can extrapolate from the specs we do have is that the battery life will probably be fairly good. With CES just days away, it won’t be long until the big reveal, and we’ve got Dan heading to ZTE’s presser.
