“The Blade Z Max is a budget offering with a 6-inch display, dual cameras and a massive 4,080mAh battery”
ZTE has expanded its range of Z series smartphones with the launch of the Blade Z Max. The phone comes as the successor to last year’s ZMax Pro. Similar to its predecessor, the Blade Z Max brings loaded specs for a budget. At just $129 (~Rs 8,260), the phone offers a dual camera setup at the rear and a beefy battery under the hood.
The ZTE Blade Z Max features a combination of 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel cameras at the rear. The phone allows you to choose from a number of modes like bokeh, monochrome and portrait. In the front, the device gets an 8-megapixel selfie shooter. The handset features a textured back panel with a fingerprint sensor.
The Blade Z Max gets a 6-inch full HD IPS LCD display with a layer of 2.5D curved Dragontrail glass. It utilises a 1.4GHz octa-core Snapdragon 435 SoC, mated to 2GB of RAM. The storage capacity on board is 32GB, which can be further increased up to 128GB. The 4,080mAh battery under the hood supports Quick Charge 2.0 and delivers up to 31 hours of talk time.
The Android Nougat-powered offering comes with a headphone jack and a USB Type-C port. The phone is up for pre-order from the US telecom operator MetroPCS. There’s no word on when the brand is planning to launch the device outside the US at the moment.
