ZTE has unveiled a new entry-level smartphone in Mexico under the Blade L9 moniker. The handset debuts with modest specs such as the Android Go Edition OS, a Unisoc chip, and a low-resolution display. But all these specifications compensate for its affordable price tag.
Specifications of the ZTE Blade L9
The handset sports a 5-inch TFT panel, and it supports an 18:9 aspect ratio alongside a screen resolution of 960 x 480 pixels. The top bezel on the front side houses the 5-megapixel selfie camera that allows the user to take selfies and make video calls.
The ZTE Blade L9 packs a single 8-megapixel camera alongside an LED flash for lighting on the back. The phone’s left side sports a micro-USB port, and its right spine houses the volume rockers and the power button.
The top edge of the phone has the iconic 3.5mm audio jack. And the fascinating thing about the Blade L9’s design is that its bottom edge is free of ports or buttons – how unusual.
However, the Unisoc SC7731E chip comprises a 1.3GHz quad-core processor that oversees the operations of the ZTE Blade L9. It comes with 1GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM, and a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
Out of the box, the handset is pre-loaded with the Android 11 Go Edition, and it houses a 2,000mAh battery for backup. The Blade L9 also supports other features like dual SIM, 3G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.2.
The handset will arrive in Mexico in colors like Blue and Black, and it will retail for MXN 1,699 (~$83).
