ZTE Blade V8 Pro now available for pre-order with 5.5-inch display, dual 13MP rear cameras


ZTE today announced an Android smartphone targeted at the US market.

The ZTE Blade V8 Pro is now official, boasting dual 13-megapixel rear cameras that let you do things like add a bokeh effect to your images. Also included with the rear cameras is a dual flash and 4K video capture. There’s an 8-megapixel camera on the front of the Blade V8 Pro, too.

ZTE’s Blade V8 Pro runs Android Marshmallow on a 5.5-inch 1920×1080 display and also includes an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, dual SIM slots (second SIM slot doubles as a microSD slot), and a fingerprint reader on the front of the unit. Powering the Blade V8 Pro is a 3,140mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0 support.

When it comes to cellular connectivity, the Blade V8 Pro includes support for GSM 850/900/1800/1900, UMTS 850/1900/AWS/2100, and LTE bands 2/4/5/7/12. ZTE tells me that the Blade V8 Pro offers support for T-Mobile band 12 LTE and VoLTE, but not Wi-Fi Calling.

If the ZTE Blade V8 Pro is piquing your interest, you can pre-order the unlocked model right now for $229.98. Anyone that orders between now and January 17 will receive a free protective case for their new phone.

      HTC had the ability to change focus after the image was taken with the M8, which is software. definitely handy for certain things.

    Am I correct in assuming this isn’t covered by ZTE’s 2 year Passport extended warranty that they offer on the Axon line?

    • D. Matthew Dukes

      The AXON passport system would not apply to my understanding.

    Good looking specs for this mid-ranger.
    ZTE makes real good solid phones.
