The ZTE Blade V8 Mini is a new smartphone from ZTE aimed at new and younger smartphone users. If the title already didn’t give it away, it includes a slightly smaller screen compared to the ZTE Blade V8. To learn more about this phone including the ZTE Blade V8 Mini Dubai price and specs, continue reading.
For a budget phone, the ZTE Blade V8 Mini is quite a good looking one. It looks quite premium-ish and didn’t settle for a poor build quality. There are some minor changes in design compared to the ZTE Blade V8 but nothing that takes away from the nice design of the phone. It’s packing a 5.0-inch screen showing 1280 x 720 pixels resolution and 294ppi of pixel density. This is slightly disappointing as most of the phones with a 5.0-inch screen are switching to a full HD resolution display. It’s not really notable if you are concerned about the brightness of the phone. If it’s a phone with a bigger screen you want, there is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and Motorola Moto G4 Plus with 5.5-inch screen. It’s comparatively cheap if not as cheap as the ZTE Blade V8 Mini Dubai price.
This is probably a surprising feature to see in this phone considering the price, dual camera on the back. Users will be able to take bokeh filled pictures thanks to the dual cameras set on the back, one 13-megapixel camera and one 2-megapixel camera. The front camera is a decent 5-megapixel one but this one includes LED flash as well which is definitely something to look forward to if you love taking selfies. While there are phones with dual cameras like the Huawei P9 and iPhone 7 Plus, it’s really a great feature to have in a phone that costs less than 800 AED. These are already available but the ZTE Blade V8 Mini release date UAE is still a mystery at this point.
As mentioned earlier, it’s a budget phone and it’s quite visible in the processor and RAM. The phone is packing a mediocre octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor clocked at 1.4GHz. It’s paired with 2GB of RAM. It should not be a problem if you are not a heavy user and don’t intend to use your phone for running high-end apps. Other notable features include: 2800mAh non-removable battery, fingerprint sensor on the back, microUSB v2.0 port, FM radio and all the necessary connectivity options including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
The ZTE Blade V8 Mini will be available for only about 800 AED or SAR (~1600 EGP) which definitely makes it worth checking out. It’s expected to be available in multiple colors but only one storage option: 16GB built-in storage which can be expanded using the microSD card slot. The ZTE Blade V8 Mini release date UAE is not too far from now, March, 2017. The Nokia 5 is another smartphone that will show up almost at the same time as this one that you can check out.
