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?
