Not long after we saw the ZTE Blade S6, which runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, here we have another ZTE-made smartphone which comes with the latest version of Android pre-installed: the Blade L3.
Like the S6, the Blade L3 - pictured above - sports a 5-inch display, though its resolution is a lower one: 540 x 960 pixels. Its processor is also weaker: instead of the octa-core Snapdragon 615 that's powering the Blade S6, the L3 uses a quad-core MediaTek MT6582M CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz. The new Blade further features an 8 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, and a 2000 mAh battery. Of course, all this means the L3 will be significantly cheaper than the S6, which is expected to cost around $250.
While ZTE doesn't say when and where the Blade L3 will be released, the company mentions that the handset has several color variants, including " unique pearlescent colors." Sounds fancy.
All in all, it seems that we should get used to seeing only Lollipop (or OSes based on it) running on newly-announced Android smartphones. Here's hoping.
