ZTE Blade S6's successor has a 13 MP front camera, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, and runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

ZTE Blade S6 came out in January and now, less than a year later, it already gets a successor. ZTE has just introduced the Blade S7, a premium mid-ranger with an aluminum frame, glass back, and a generous front camera optimized for selfies.

The highlights of the new ZTE Blade S7 include the following:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC with Adreno 405 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage and microSD support (using second SIM slot)
  • Display: 5-inch IPS multitouch with 1,920X1,080 pixels
  • Cameras: 13 MP front, 14 MP with autofocus and LED flash on the back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 with LE and A2DP, GPS with A-GPS, micro USB
  • Operating system: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.29 pounds; 5.59X2.64X0.28 inches
  • Battery: embedded 2500 mAh lithium-ion
  • Colors: rose gold, lemon green, diamond white, space gray

In addition to the above, the Blade S7 also has a fingerprint scanner on the front panel that can be used to perform various other functions as well. Unfortunately, the phone will also be available in Asia for now. At roughly $280 USD, the ZTE Blade S7 looks like a very good deal, and it would not be a surprise to see it available internationally as well, maybe under a different name.

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.
