ZTE has announced two new entry level phones – the new Blade A7 Prime and Blade 10 Prime. Both smartphones of course pack specs for their level and attractive prices aimed at those on the look for a budget or looking for a secondary device.
Blade 10 Prime
The Blade 10 Prime packs dual cameras along with a more capable chipset. You also get a 6.3-inch FHD+ panel with a waterdrop notch for the 16MP selfie cam.
The back is where you find the 16MP F/2.0 main shooter combined with a secondary 5MP F/2.2 depth helper. Like the A7 Prime, you also get a rear-mounted fingerprint reader.
The Blade 10 Prime comes with the Helio P60 SoC paired with 3GB RAM and 64GB internal storage which is expandable. Battery wise you’re still looking at a 3,200 mAh cell which also supports USB PD 2.0.
The phone runs Android 9 Pie and also packs a 3.5mm headphone jack up top.
