ZTE Blade V580 launches with fingerprint sensor

Less than 24 hours after launching the Blade D2, Chinese tech giant ZTE has launched the Blade V580, another device with a powerful battery.

The ZTE Blade V580 at the moment can only be pre-ordered in Japan at a price of JPY 27,800 (roughly 51,000 Naira) and ZTE said shipping of the smartphone will start from March 25th 2016. There was however no word about the phone’s availability outside of the Asian country.

The highlight of the smartphone, apart from its powerful battery is that it sports a ‘high-precision’ fingerprint at the back.

The fingerprint, despite improving the security of the phone can also work as a camera shutter button. The handset measures 77.2×155.3×8.6mm and weighs 165 grams.

According to the listing, the dual-SIM (Nano SIM+Nano SIM) smartphone comes in a metal body and sports a 5.5 inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) resolution display. The second SIM slot in the handset also acts as a microSD card slot.

Under the hood, there’s an octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz doing the heavy lifting. This is further backed by a 2 GB RAM to give its prospective users a smooth experience when multitasking or playing video games.

The ZTE Blade V580 also houses 16GB of inbuilt storage, and if there’s need for more memory a microSD slot is on board which can receive memory cards not bigger than 32 GB.

On the camera front, the Blade V580 sports a 13 megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 5 megapixel front-facing camera for taking selfies and making video calls. Connectivity options on the phone include support for 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, GPS/ A-GPS and Micro-USB.

The ZTE Blade V580 is backed by a 3000 mAh battery and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system out-of-the-box. It will be available in Silver and Grey colour variants.
