Chinese smartphone manufacturer ZTE rolled out the Blade D2 budget smartphone with a 5-inch display and 4000mAh battery in Vietnam at VND 2,690,000 (roughly Rs. 8,100). ZTE did not reveal any information about the global launch of the phone including India.
Showing the details of the phone, the company sources informed that the biggest attraction of ZTE Blade D2 is the integration of a 4000mAh battery, which can also act as a charger for other devices like smartphones and tablets. Moreover, the handset is manufactured using the plastic body with a sophisticated design of the frame.
On the specifications front, ZTE Blade D2 is equipped with a 5-inch HD IPS display, a quad-core MediaTek MTK6735P processor paired with 1GB RAM. Even though the internal storage is only 8GB, you will be able to expand the storage up to 64GB using microSD card. Moreover, the device is loaded with the latest version of Android Lollipop.
At this point, we don’t have accurate information about the possibility of an upgrade to Android Marshmallow.
ZTE Blade D2 houses a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash in addition to a 2-megapixel front-facing snapper with all the required connectivity features such as 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, GPS and Micro-USB. With a weight of 155 grams, ZTE Blade D2 measures only 8 mm in thickness.
Previously, in February 2016, ZTE showcased Blade V7 and Blade V7 Lite along with a new Android-based Spro Plus ‘smart projector’ on the sidelines of Mobile World Congress 2016.
However, ZTE is yet to reveal the pricing details of the smartphones but according to internal sources, the devices will be initially available in Spain, Ethiopia, South Africa and Mexico from this year.
