It seems ZTE is beginning to add more of their own smartphones to the market, with the latest being the Blade Vec 3G popping up on JB HiFi’s website for $249.
The ZTE Blade Vec 3G offers some decent specs for a mid range phablet, although at only 5″ what defines a phablet these days? The price is pretty decent, at $249 but it comes with a bit of a mystery.
With the name ‘ZTE Blade Vec 4G’ you’d expect an LTE radio, instead the JB Hifi website simply lists ‘3G’, we are trying to chase this up with ZTE Australia, so we’ll let you know.
Update, Tuesday Oct 7 JB Hi-Fi has corrected their listing, the phone is now identified as the “Blade Vec 3G”.
