The Blade V9 has made the trip over to Geekbench, Snapdragon 450 in tow. It's joined by the Moto G6 Play, Motorola's upcoming budget device which features the less impressive Snapdragon 430.

Word of the ZTE Blade V9 surfaced a while ago. The device will succeed the Blade V8 as the latest entry in ZTE's budget bang-for-buck line. The V9 has made its way over to Geekbench, with the listing showing us what to expect from the device in the performance department. It made the trip alongside the Moto G6 Play, another budget device.

Going by the listing, the Blade V9 will be powered by the Snapdragon 450, while the G6 Play will get its lifting juice from a Snapdragon 430. The 430 is already two years old, so it's a bit surprising to see it on a 2018 device. Poor form by Motorola, some would say. The Snapdragon 450 is the more interesting SoC here. It has been used on devices like the Redmi 5 and Vivo V7+, and a recent leak claims it will also be seen on the upcoming Nokia 4. 

The Snapdragon 450 impresses here, of course. Its score of 772 in single core and 3931 in multi-core are way above the paygrade of the Snapdragon 430's scores of 472 and 1801. An SoC similar to the Snapdragon 450 is the legendary Snapdragon 625, as both SoCs post similar benchmark figures—the Snapdragon 625 having a 10-15% advantage.

Both device will feature 18:9 displays, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage. They also both run on Android Oreo—8.1 in the case of the V9, and 8.0 on the G6 Play. MWC launches are expected.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
