ZTE Blade V2 is a 64-bit affordable smartphone that's good for selfies
ZTE has a new 64-bit smartphone that's been included in the company's Blade series (and this time it's not an iPhone 6 wannabe). Called ZTE Blade V2, the new handset won't impress anyone with its specs and design - that's why we're expecting it to be very affordable.

It seems that the Blade V2 is an improved version of the Blade Vec 4G that was released last year. The most significant improvements include the presence of a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor (instead of the Snapdragon 400 that's powering the older handset), and a 5 MP front-facing camera that lets you take selfies using gesture controls. There's also a slightly larger battery: 2400 mAh, instead of the 2300 mAh one of the Blade Vec 4G.

Running Android KitKat, the ZTE Blade V2 sports a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels. Furthermore, it features LTE connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of internal memory.

ZTE didn't say when and where the Blade V2 will be launched. However, since the promo video that presents it - embedded below - is in English, we assume the handset will be available internationally.

So if it's square, it's a Sony knockoff. If it has round edges on the sides, it's Nokia knockoff. Based on your logic, I hope you don't look anything like us human. Because if you do, you're also a knockoff that you so despise.

lol 5MP front camera has heen standard in China in the mid rabge last year. Now the defult is moving to 8MP but this one is on the cheaper side so it's "lacking "on the front cam side.

Doesn't ZTE usually release the Blade series phone in the UK?

Don't call this crap 'smartphone that is good for selfies', because Xperia C3 obviously has a better selfie camera (5MP wide-angle cam with flash)...

I smell a stupid Sony troll. Why don't we just wait for the camera test? Even the C3 camera test comes out better than this phone, I would still choose this phone any day over that overpriced fugly POS xperia C3, not to mention xperia display is crappy.

Why would anyone care about a front camera. I've never used one, and doubt I ever will. My problem is that I can't find where to insert the SD card. The instructions show a slot on the side, but there's only a slot for a SIM card. Even the supplier couldn't figure it out.
