ZTE Blade L5 shown in FCC certification process
A few days ago we gave news about the ZTE Blade D Lux that had just launched for some markets. Now we have news about another ZTE Blade series smartphone in the pipeline. The ZTE Blade L5 has just passed through the FCC in the US, and this has disclosed just a few of the specs and some images.
Usually once we see devices go through the FCC certification process, we often see an official launch within the next month or so. For example the Blade D Lux received FCC approval in November and launched last week in Vietnam and Singapore. Therefore we don’t expect it to be too much longer until ZTE officially announces the Blade L5.
The FCC certification filing shows that the ZTE Blade L5 carries a 2150 mAh battery. Connectivity includes 3G, 2G, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS, and EDGE, but the phone does not have 4G LTE connectivity. The images also confirm that the Blade L5 has a rear camera (with LED flash) as well as a front-facing camera, but doesn’t give further details on this aspect.
It seems that the ZTE Blade L5 could be launched under several model names including the Blade L5, ZTE L5, ZTE Blade M and others. Unfortunately the documentation doesn’t give any further information about the phone at the moment, so we’ll keep our eyes open for more and give you the news as we hear it. Hopefully we’ll hear something official very soon.
Interestingly another Blade smartphone called the ZTE Blade L6 passed through the FCC in November and has yet to be announced. The Blade L6 does have 4G LTE support though, and other specs revealed were a 2000 mAh battery, a microSD slot, and a display size of around 5-inches.
We wouldn’t be surprised to see both of these two new Blade handsets officially launched together. Are you a potential buyer of the ZTE Blade L5 or L6?
