Description

The Blade V8 Pro is a mid-range handset at heart, as the phone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory (expandable up to 128GB via microSD). It's worth noting that the phone features hybrid dual-SIM support, so you can either use two SIM cards, or one SIM card and a memory card. The physical Home button hides a fingerprint sensor. ZTE Blade V8 Pro sports a 5.5-inch display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 coating. The phone is powered by a 3,140 mAh battery that features Quick Charge 2.0 support.
