These two 5-inch handsets come with Android Nougat on board and offer premium features for a mid-range price. The metallic unibody V8 Mini is the more advanced of them, sporting a dual camera setup and 3D shooting.

Back at CES in January, ZTE unveiled the Blade V8 Pro and the Blade V8 handsets. The first one featured dual cameras and an attractive price, while its sibling missed some of its more advanced features, but also carried a lower price tag. Now, this story repeats once again with the dual camera Blade V8 Mini and its V8 Lite companion.

These are the highlights of ZTE's latest handsets:

  • Blade V8 Mini - Qualcomm Snapdragon 435, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, 5-inch 720p, 5 MP front, 8 MP back, 2,800 mAh
  • Blade V8 Lite - MediaTek MT6750, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, 5-inch 720p, 5 MP front, 13 MP + 2 MP dual camera setup on the back, 2,500 mAh

Both handsets mentioned above feature a metallic body but their batteries are embedded, unfortunately. The connectivity options include the usual - WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, 4G LTE. They also feature a fingerprint reader and microSD support up to 128 GB. The operating system preloaded is Android Nougat, with ZTE's custom UI on top.

Pricing and availability details will be announced in the near future. In the meantime, the ZTE Blade V8 Mini and V8 Lite can be seen at MWC 2017 - booth 3F30, Hall 3.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
