ZTE Blade A2 offers an octa-core SoC for under 110 Euros
Alongside the flagship Nubia Z11 Max announcement comes the budget Blade A2 smartphone as the successor to the Blade A1. The device was actually announced last December, but more details and a firm launch date are now finally confirmed.
Core specifications include:
- 5-inch 720p display
- 1.5 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6750 SoC
- 2 GB RAM
- 16 GB eMMC w/ MicroSD reader
- 13 MP rear PDAF and LED Flash + 5 MP front cameras
- Android 5.1
- 2500 mAh battery
Other features include a fingerprint sensor and LTE radio, though the latter supports only bands 1, 3, 7, and 39 to 41. Most regions in Western Europe rely on band 20 for LTE connectivity. The smartphone is notable for its octa-core processor that is uncommon for its price range.
The Blade A2 will be available in Silver, Gray, and Gold color options for the equivalent of 105 to 110 Euros starting June 15 in China.
