ZTE Blade V6 was previously announced as Blade D6, so we guess the model name will depend on the market. Now that we've cleared this up, we are ready to show you one very beautiful phone.
You can tell right away the Blade V6 looks a lot like the iPhone 6 and it will most probably target people, who like the iPhone 6 design but are not fans of the restrictive iOS. And we can confirm the Blade V6 does not only look good, but it is of an excellent build!
The frame is made of metal, the front glass has the 2.5D effect and improves the handling by creating this comfy rim just above the frame. Unfortunately we are not sure what most of the rear cover is made of. It looks like metal, but feels more like a plastic.
The Blade V6 packs a 5" 720p IPS display with great contrast, but it's rather dim. Hopefully this is only an issue of this presentation unit, which might be preventing it of overheating issues during the IFA expo.
The phone ticks on a MT6735 chip with a quad-core 1.3GHz Cortex-A53, Mali-T720MP2 and 2GB RAM. It offers 16GB expandable storage and dual-SIM option. The Android version in charge is Lollipop, skinned with a custom MiFavor launcher.
The Blade V6 is a pure pleasure to handle. If priced right, this could be a very thoughtful mid-ranger.
