It seems that if you do not roll out a 64-bit smartphone these days with at the very least four cores to go along with the chipset within, you aren’t par for the course. ZTE has just revealed a spanking new 64-bit smartphone which will hail from the Blade range, where it is known as the ZTE Blade V2. It might sound razor sharp, but this handset will not be on the cutting edge of technology with the kind of hardware that it packs within – which is why chances are it will be easy on the pocket, money-wise, that is.
At first glance, the ZTE Blade V2 does seem to shape up to be an improvised version of the Blade Vec 4G which was introduced to the masses in 2014. There will be a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor running proceedings from within, in addition to a 5MP front-facing shooter that allows you to snap selfies not through voice commands or a remote control, but with gesture controls. Apart from that, the 2,400 mAh battery should stand it in good stead to last the entire day.
Android 4.4 KitKat will be the operating system of choice, where the ZTE Blade V2 will also be accompanied by a 5” display at 720 x 1280 pixels resolution, LTE connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0 support, a 13MP shooter at the back with LED flash, 1GB RAM, and 8GB of internal memory. There is no word on pricing or availability as at press time, but it looks pretty primed up for a release!
