ZTE Blade S6 seems to be another iPhone 6-like Android handset

ZTE Blade S6 seems to be another iPhone 6-like Android handset
Last month, we told you about the ZTE Q7, an unannounced smartphone that looks a lot like an iPhone 6. Now, another similar ZTE handset showed up: the Blade S6.

According to online retailer GearBest, the ZTE Blade S6 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, features 4G connectivity, and sports a 5-inch display. This means it’s smaller than the Q7, which has a 5.5-inch screen. Even so, the two handsets are almost identical, though the S6 has a single LED flash next to the rear camera, while the Q7 comes with a dual LED flash. The sensors on the front (above the screen) are also positioned differently.

In the past, ZTE released quite many Blade-branded handsets around the world, so the Blade S6 could be a non-Chinese variant of the Q7. Of course, given the similarity between it and the iPhone 6, ZTE could get in trouble for selling the S6 outside of China.

The ZTE Blade S6 is expected to be officially announced later this month, when we should find out more about its features, availability, and price.

But the chinese copycat is actually better looking than the original as it lacks those ugly thick antenna lines.

If an OEM create a phone with rounded corners it looks like an iPhone, if its boxy it looks like sony and squared it will look like the BlackBerry passport. Maybe they should start creating an oval or maybe a triangle one.

Then it would look like a KIN.

If you hate Apple, that is Okay. But, just look at this garbage and confess its a clear iPhone clone. I really wish these Chinese companies to die. The smartphone world was very great without them

Agreed, just because they don't have laws in their county....doesn't mean that they can do anything they want ....

They took the name of the s6 (I know it has not come out yet) and the design of the iPhone 6. Good job on all your original ideas.

And beating the original by a land mile as well, much more cleaner looking and beautiful.

I think it's just as ugly, maybe worse, at least according to these pics.

What was awfully opinionated in my post? Are you going to deny not having the antenna lines results in a cleaner look? The more beautiful part i do agree that is opinionated.

Never thought I'd ever say this, but ZTE, time to take notes from Xiaomi.

Good grief that's clearly a copy an so much so its hideous to my tastes. Another shelf queen.

I may have bad eyes, but IMO it looks more like galaxy phones rather than iphones.
