ZTE has had a rather successful year. This China-based company has released quite a few of interesting devices, and the most appealing ones belong in the company’s Axon and Nubia lines. The ZTE Nubia Z9 was announced earlier this year, a device with no bezel on the sides whatsoever. Their Axon devices, on the other hand, sport quite an interesting design, and are also quite powerful in terms of audio. That being said, ZTE also sells ‘Blade’ devices, which are the company’s mid-range devices. Well, the Blade S7 surfaced a few times thus far, and it is now official, read on.
This Chinese smartphone OEM has unveiled the ZTE Blade S7 in China. The device features a 5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) LTPS display (445 PPI, 2.5D curved display, Gorilla Glass 3) with 178-degree viewing angles. The phone also packs in 3GB of DDR3 RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The Blade S7 is fueled by the Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor along with an Adreno 405 GPU for graphics. The device packs in two 13-megapixel shooters, one on the front, and one on the back. The rear-facing shooter is flanked by a Laser Autofocus, and both of these cameras sport an LED flash. There are a number of shooting modes included in ZTE’s software, as usual. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed here with ZTE’s MiFavor 3.2 UI available on top of it. The phone is 7.2mm thick, and it is 67mm wide. It is also worth mentioning that the phone sports a physical home button below the display which doubles as a fingerprint scanner.
