ZTE continues its march forward to establishing itself on the US smartphone market. Thatís why the Chinese company is taking CES 2017 very seriously, and it's right here in Las Vegas where the company is proudly showcasing their latest device the Blade V8 Pro.
The Blade V8 Pro will be a major weapon in the companyís arsenal in the first half of the year. Why? Because it costs $230 and packs a lot more than you might initially think.
ZTE chose the V8 part in the phoneís name carefully, as itíll undoubtedly cater to muscle car lovers in the US. With that bad joke out of the way, the Blade V8 Pro is more akin to an electric drive car than to a V8 muscle car.
The reason lies in the Snapdragon 625 chipset, which is built for range rather than speed. Performance-wise, it's far ahead from an entry level chipset but power efficiency is its forte.
Here's what else you should expect from the Blade V8 Pro regarding features.
