ZTE have officially launched the Australian version of the Blade S6 today which we reported had popped up on the ZTE Mobile website earlier this week.
The Blade S6 is a nice looking phone with some pretty decent specs to boot. The Blade S6 will be a stock Android experience, with Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop) available right out of the box, with no Mi interface that has appeared on other Blade S6 handsets around the world. This lessening of the ZTE skin means that there’s more user accessible memory available for users.
If you’ve already forgotten the specs for the Blade S6, then here you go:
- 5″ HD (1280 x 720) IPS Display
- 1.5/1.0GHz Qualcomm Octa-core CPU
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB on-board storage(11.6GB user accessible) with microSD Card up to 32GB
- 13MP Sony IMX214 rear camera, 5MP front facing camera
- Bluetooth v4.0, Dual Band (2.4/5.0GHz) Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, GPS
- Dual SIM enabled (nano SIM)
- Network Connectivity:
- 4G: 1800 MHz(Band 3), 2600 MHz(Band 7), 700 MHz(Band 28)
- 3G: 850 MHz, 2100 MHz
- 2G: 900, 1800 MHz
- Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop)
The Blade S6 should be available at your local JB Hi-Fi store from May 7th, however from what we have been advised, that there could be some issues with some stores getting the device before this date – but you should expect it to start arriving from this date. The Blade S6 will also be available through the JB Hi-Fi website on the same date for a RRP of $299.
