ZTE Blade V9 with Android Oreo and 18:9 display may soon be launched in the US
The Blade V9 is the next Android smartphone ZTE is likely to introduce in the United States. It won't be the first Blade series handset to go on sale in the US, and most likely not the last, but the phone will certainly mark a premiere. The Blade V9 could be ZTE's first smartphone powered by Android Oreo to make its debut in the US.

The device was recently spotted at FCC (Federal Communication Commission), which indicates ZTE might ready the Blade V9 for a US release. As far as specs go, this looks like a decent mid-range device.

The phone sports a 5.7-inch Full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio and packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor. Although ZTE plans to launch different variations of the Blade V9 based on the amount of memory, the US model comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB expandable storage.

On the back, ZTE's smartphone features a dual-camera setup (16MP+5MP), while in the front there's a secondary 13-megapixel selfie snapper. A rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is included as well, along with a 3,200 mAh battery and an audio jack.

It's quite possible that the ZTE Blade V9 will be officially unveiled next month at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, but it's yet unclear when it will be released in the US.

3 or 4 gb of ram should be the standard minimum now for any tier of phone. And dont cry that its asking too much of cheap phones because the parts are so cheap now

That was the v8 pro. The v8 had a snapdragon 435, and a 450 is better than that. The v9 pro will probably tout a snapdragon 630 or 636.

Honor just has all these beat with its honor 7X. Unless they sell this for $100.
