3 new Blade-series phones are now live on the ZTE website. 2 of these - the Blade 10 Prime and A7 Prime - are available through the carrier Visible. The Blade 10, on the other hand, is an unlocked device sold by the OEM itself.

ZTE is back selling new phones in the US with the Blade 10, 10 Prime and A7 Prime. The last 2 of these are being sold through the carrier Visible for US$179 and $99 respectively. The Blade 10 is the same price as its Prime variant, but is available through zteusa.com instead. 

The ZTE Blade 10 has a 6.3-inch FHD+ display with a waterdrop notch. It is powered by the MediaTek Helio P60 SoC and has just 1 3GB/64GB SKU. These attributes, along with the Blade 10's 16MP selfie camera and 16+5MP dual shooters, are powered by a 3200 mAh battery which charges via a USB type C port. The new phone also has a microSD card slot; a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, Android Pie (9.0) and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Blade 10 Prime has the exact same specs, apart from the fact that it is LTE-only. It supports the B2/4/5/12/13/66 bands, 2xCA and Category (Cat.) 6 speeds. The 10 does the same, but also has quad GSM bands and the UMTS Bands B1, 2, 4, 5 and 8. Both Blade 10 variants also only come in black.

The ZTE Blade A7 Prime is also a non-3G phone, and has B2/4/5/13 bands and Cat. 4 speeds. Its HD+ screen measures 6.088 inches and is driven by the Helio A22 SoC. It has 32GB of internal storage, a 5MP selfie camera and one 16MP main camera; apart from this, its specs are identical to those of the Blades 10.

However, its gray plastic rear casing has a fabric-effect finish, whereas those of the other 2 new devices mimic glass instead. These new ZTE phones are available from their varied vendors from now.
