At MWC 2016 ZTE unveiled two new smartphones, the Blade V7 and Blade V7 Lite. Now another new handset has surfaced and the ZTE Blade D2 price and specs have been made official. This is a lower-end device but the highlight is a very nicely sizeable battery.
So far the ZTE Blade D2 (model Blade-T620) has launched in Thailand but availability for other markets has not been specified. However, it’s also listed on an official website in Vietnam so it’s pretty certain that it will also launch elsewhere. Specifications include a 1GHz MediaTek MT6735P 64-bit quad-core processor, Mali-T720 graphics, and a 5-inch IPS LCD display with HD resolution of 1280 x 720.
Further ZTE Blade D2 specs are 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage that’s expandable via microSD card to 64GB. The version of the phone for Thailand has an 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash, and 1080p video capture, plus a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. However, the website entry for Vietnam lists it with a 5-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing snapper.
Connectivity includes 4G LTE, 3G, 2G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and microUSB 2.0, and it has a 4000 mAh battery that should keep the juice flowing nicely. The ZTE Blade D2 runs the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system. The handset measures 144mm x 69.5mm x 8mm and weighs in at 155g.
The ZTE Blade D2 price for Vietnam is shown as VND 2.690.000 and that equates to around $120, £84, €109, or Rs. 8,035.
