Just last month, ZTE announced the Blade V8 Pro in CES 2017. The Chinese company is back again in MWC 2017, this time to announce two more devices to the line: the ZTE Blade V8 Mini and Blade V8 Lite. These are mid-range budget smartphones that runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
First up, both the ZTE Blade V8 Mini and V8 Lite feature a 5” HD display at the front, while the back has a fingerprint sensor located right in the middle. On the inside, there is 2GB of RAM paired with 16GB of internal storage; there’s also a microSD card slot on both phones if you need more space.
Both these smartphones from ZTE look very similar, but the V8 Mini is definitely more premium of the two. Like the original ZTE Blade V8 Pro, it has a dual-camera setup at the back. The only compromise is that instead of dual 13MP sensors, the V8 Mini has a 13MP + 2MP setup. The ZTE Blade V8 Lite has a single 8MP rear-facing camera on board. Both phones have a 5MP selfie camera at the front.
As for the processor, the V8 Mini is powered by a Snapdragon 435 processor, while the V8 Lite is powered by a MediaTek 6750 processor. As mentioned before, both of them have 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. The V8 Mini has a slightly larger 2,800mAh battery on board compared to 2,500mAh on the V8 Lite.
ZTE will launch the ZTE Blade V8 Mini and V8 Lite in Asia Pacific and Europe. Sadly though, The Chinese company did not mention anything regarding the price, but they should be cheaper than the US$230 (about RM1,021) Blade V8 Pro; who says that you need to fork out big bucks to own a smartphone with dual-camera setup?
