ZTE Blade V9 with Android Oreo onboard hits FCC
ZTE unveiled the Blade V9 by mistake in December, quickly removing the pages that surfaced online by accident. Obviously, once something ends up online, it is very hard to take it back, so now it is only a matter of time until this handset finally gets the official launch it deserves. Now, we just heard that the ZTE Blade V9 has recently visited the FCC and is scheduled to debut next month, at the MWC 2018 trade show.
The handset that visited the US certification authority is identified as SRQ-ZTEBLADEV9. Some of the materials submitted by ZTE also reveal that the ZTE Blade V9 runs Android 8.0 Oreo with the January security patch on top, and two hardware configurations are ready to hit the market: one with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage, and the other with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage.
The remaining specs that were unveiled so far include a 5.7-inch full HD display (some rumors also mention an 18:9 display ratio), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, a 13 MP selfie shooter, a dual camera setup with 16 MP + 5 MP on the back, as well as a 3,200 mAh battery.
Obviously, all the above should get an official confirmation, but most chances are that ZTE will bring the Blade V9 into the spotlight at MWC 2018.
