The latest 5G handset from ZTE is the Blade X1. It will be exclusive to US MVNO carrier Visible which operates on Verizon’s network. The X1 is actually quite similar to ZTE’s Blade V2020 5G with the only difference being the Blade X1 is powered by the Snapdragon 765G chipset.
You get a 6.5-inch IPS LCD with FHD+ resolution and a punch-hole cutout for the 16MP selfie cam. The back houses a quad-camera setup with a 48MP primary shooter backed by an 8MP ultrawide lens and two 2MP modules for macro shots and depth data. The phone also packs a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
The X1 5G comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage which is further expandable via the MicroSD card slot. The software side is covered by Android 10 while the battery comes in at 4,000 mAh.
The ZTE X1 5G has a single Midnight blue color and retails for $384.
ZTE the one before the z981 was my fist phone then I upgraded to the z981 I had 2 since then, and they are great for the price and features.
The Axon 7 is still a great phone, with a high rez OLED screen and unbelievable speakers, but I would never buy a ZTE product after they abandoned US user with no updates after they got banned.
