ZTE Blade Max 3 (with a 4000 mAh battery) launched in the US for $199
US Cellular recently released a brand new ZTE smartphone that's targeting folks in need of a large and affordable handset. Called ZTE Blade Max 3, the new device kind of succeeds the ZTE Imperial Max (launched by US Cellular a year ago).

Powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, the ZTE Blade Max 3 sports a 6-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, and packs a 4,000 mAh battery - good enough for a talk time of up to 40 hours, or a stand-by time of up to 31 days. The new handset further offers a fingerprint scanner, a 13 MP dual rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, and a USB Type C port. Moreover, there's 2 GB of RAM on board, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a dedicated DAC (Digital-to-Analog Convertor) that should provide a high-quality audio experience (via headphones).

The ZTE Blade Max 3 costs $199.99 outright (after a $100 online discount), or $12.5 per month for 24 months. Unfortunately, for some mysterious reason, the phone runs Android 6 Marshmallow, and we don't know if it's going to be updated to Android 7 Nougat. Nevertheless, if you want to buy the device, you can order it from US Cellular via the source link below - though you should first check if the carrier offers services in your area.
