MWC 2018: ZTE Blade V9, Tempo Go Android Go smartphone launched

It gets an 8 MP selfie shooter. The front facing camera is there to make full HD video calls and to take selfies.

One of Google's big initiatives for 2018 is Android Go, a lite version of Android 8 Oreo that is optimized for phones with 1 GB of RAM or less.

The Vita has a 3,200mAh capacity battery that's sizable for a 5.5-inch 720p display. You will have to use a microUSB cable to charge. Just like other giants, ZTE's new smartphones have acquired the facial recognition technology.

Starting with the design, the ZTE Blade V9 is a very attractive looking smartphone; the front and the back of the device are covered by an eight-layered glass, which gives the device a distinguished look. We're not sure how the USA market will receive the phone but ZTE Mobile Devices' VP of Product Strategy and Marketing Jeff Yee believes it "will provide consumers with an optimized, powerful Android experience created to allow them to do more on an entry-level smartphone than ever thought before". Surprisingly though, the Blade V9 Vita packs a bit larger battery of 3,200mAh. The device is measuring 146.8 x 68.7 x 7.6mm which is relatively low compare to the original Blade V9. Fortunately, both the devices will also come with memory expansion option to expand the memory of the device by using a microSD card.

In terms of optics, the phone offers a dual rear camera setup that comprises of a 16MP primary sensor and a 5MP secondary sensor. A fingerprint scanner is included on the back of these two phones as well, and the same can be said for ZTE's logo. The connectivity features that are available on the Tempo Go include 4G VoLTE, 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 4.2 Bluetooth, microUSB, 3.5mm audio jack and Global Positioning System.

The ZTE Blade V9 Vita is priced at $250. Smartphones based on the new OS will run a totally different set of Google apps, carrying the "Go" suffix.

The ZTE Tempo Go is an entry-level smartphone.

The first Android Go phones are coming to market, and today, ZTE announced its first device for the project.

The Axon M looks fairly normal until the second screen is folded out - it has a pair of 5.2-inch displays which allows users to mirror the main display, run two separate apps side-by-side, or extend the main display. The smartphone comes with 3GB/4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage variants.
