ZTE's Blade D6 is a new iPhone 6-like Android Lollipop smartphone

Shortly after launching the high-end Axon Phone in the US, ZTE today announced another new Android handset, but this time we're talking about a mid-range one. Called ZTE Blade D6, the new smartphone resembles the Blade S6 and Blade S6 Plus that ZTE released earlier this year, which means it kind of looks like Apple's iPhone 6.

Just like the iPhone 6, the ZTE Blade D6 - pictured above - is made out of aluminum, and is 6.9mm-thin. However, the D6 is taller and wider than Apple's flagship, and that's because it sports a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels.

The Blade D6 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop customized with ZTE's own MiFavor 3.2 UI, and is powered by a 64-bit quad-core MediaTek MTK6735 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz. The handset also features LTE connectivity, dual SIM support, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2200 mAh battery. A 5 MP front-facing camera and a 13 MP rear camera complete the specs list. The D6 comes with what ZTE is calling a "3 in 2 innovative tray holder" - this can simultaneously accommodate a regular micro SIM card, plus either a nano SIM, or a microSD card.

The ZTE Blade D6 will be available starting the next few months, coming in several color versions, including silver, gold, pink, and grey. The smartphone's price wasn't announced, but ZTE revealed some of the markets where it will be sold: Australia, Russia and Japan. Anyone interested?

Everyone can copy the looks of the iPhone except Samsung and get away with it. This device looks way more like an iPhone than any Samsung device with exception of the very first S. GooPhone and 2 others also have phones that are near identical to the iPhone, yet Apple hasn't raised a finger to sue any of them. They went after Samsung for absolutely no reason other than to slow their progress, which failed.

That's because those are chinese OEMs and Apple don't see them as a threat like Samsung is. My understanding is that China pisses on foreign companies pattents and a lawsuit from Apple to them would be useless.

The iP6 copied the Ativ S, so Apple doesn't have a leg to stand on. All these new phones are just a clone of the Ativ S.

Well I find it better than iphone 6 in design. Because it doesn't have that ugly antenna bands. Hardware wise Apple's A8 blows the MTK System On Crap Out of the water.
