Budget-friendly ZTE Blade V9 to be unveiled at MWC 2018 before launching in the US
It appears that sources familiar with ZTE's plans claim that Blade V9 will finally be introduced later this month at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 trade fair.
Why is the ZTE Blade V9 so important? Well, this could become the cheapest Android smartphone in the US to feature an 18:9 display. Since ZTE inadvertently listed the Blade V9 on its website, we know quite a bit about its hardware.
The most important thing is that the Blade V9 comes with Android 8.0 Oreo right out of the box. Also, the smartphone sports a large 5.7-inch display with 1,080 x 2,160 pixels resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.
Hardware-wise, the Blade V9 isn't that impressive considering it packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor. It's unclear how much RAM it will pack in the US since it comes in multiple variations: 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB.
We have yet to learn how much it will cost and when it will be launched in the United States, but we'll surely know more details later this month if ZTE is indeed planning to go official with the Blade V9.
