ZTE brings premium features to its mid-range Blade line

The highlight though is the 5.7-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.

ZTE on Sunday added a pair of smartphones to its Blade portfolio of devices.

ZTE's V9 Blade and V9 Blade Vita have a reasonable price.

In the camera department, the Blade V9 is equipped with a 16MP, f/1.8 main shooter, with an Omnivision OV16B10 sensors and a secondary 5MP one, to help along the way and enable features like real-time bokeh and "Re-Bokeh", for adjusting the focus afterwards.

The Blade V9 Vita is slightly smaller at 5.4 inches, has 16GB of storage and a slower processor.

It's not almost as stylish as the larger ZTE Blade V9, but it does have a nice size to it, fair performance, and what should be excellent battery life based on the specs. Specs include a 3180 mAh battery with quick charging, a single 20MP camera which serves as both the front and rear camera thanks to the folding design, a side mounted fingerprint scanner, and expandable storage. The Snapdragon 450 64-bit octa-core SoC fuels the Blade V9, while the Snapdragon 435 is doing the same for the Blade V9 VITA. Under the hood is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 450 processor under the hood. The phone packs 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded.

Other specs include a fingerprint reader, 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB, hybrid dual SIM support, LTE, NFC and Bluetooth 4.2, to name a few.

The ZTE Blade V9 Vita is priced at $250.

The ZTE Tempo Go will be sold unlocked in the U.S. for $80. The devices would be shipped with different set of features in different countries. While the ZTE Blade V9 falls in the mid-segment category, the ZTE Tempo Go is the company's first smartphone associated with Google's Android Go. The smartphone comes with 3GB/4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage variants.

Being an entry-level smartphone, the new ZTE Tempo Go smartphone has a plastic body which lower down the pricing of the device. The 5.0-inch screen has a resolution of 854×480 FWVGA. Our mobile phones and other devices incorporate US-made chipsets, US-made operating systems and other components. There are 5MP rear and 2MP front cameras on there, too, as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack and 2,200mAh battery. This specific handset, revealed as part of MWC 2018, is the ZTE Tempo Go, and it is supposed to be on sale right now at the company's website for the unlocked priced of $79.99.
