ZTE has added two new entrants to its mid-range line-up, the Blade V7 and the Blade V7 Lite. As we can derive from the nomenclature, the Blade V7 Lite will be a slightly lower specced variant of the Blade V7. The Blade V7 comes clad in a full metal body and the 5-inch FHD display comes with curved glass edge and a 78.2 percent body to screen ratio, something that would eventually help the users in one handed operations.


The Blade V7 draws its power from the Octa core MediaTek MT 6753 clocked at 1.5GHz and mated to 2GB of RAM. On the imaging front, the Blade V7 comes equipped with a 13-Megapixel primary snapper alongside a dual-tone dual-LED flash, and the secondary camera shapes up in the form of a 5-Megapixel unit. The device offers 16GB of on board storage along with an expandable storage option and it will be backed by a tiny 2,500 mAh battery.

Blade V7 is expected to be available in Germany, Spain, South Africa, Ethiopia and Mexico in the second half of 2016 for an undisclosed pricing.

ZTE Blade V7 Lite heralds with a 5-inch 720p display and comes clad in a aluminium design with a 2.5D glass. The Blade V7 Lite is powered by the quad-core MediaTek MT6735P SoC clocked at 1.3GHz and coupled with 2GB of RAM.

On the imaging front, the Blade V7 Lite offers an 8-Megapixel primary sensor and an 8-Megapixel secondary sensor as well and thankfully both come paired with a LED flash. The V7 Lite offers 16GB of internal storage along with the expandable microSD card slot. The device is backed up by a 2,500mAh battery and it also has a fingerprint sensor baked in at the back.

The Blade Lite is expected to launch in spring this year and Russia, Spain, Germany and Thailand will be some of the first markets it will be making a debut at. The pricing details and the exact availability for both the Blade V7 and the Blade V7 Lite are yet to be revealed.
