Android Nougat-Powered ZTE BV0800 Benchmarked


ZTE does bring to market quite a few devices each year and ones which typically span the pricing scale, with one of the newest being the ZTE Axon 7 Max. So if you are looking for a high-spec and premium device from ZTE, you will find one. Just as easily, if you are looking for a more affordable smartphone from ZTE, you will find one – like the ZTE Axon 7 Mini which after an IFA 2016 unveil, finally became available to pre-order in the US last month. That said, if you are looking for a newer smartphone and one which is also likely to be an affordable option, then a new ZTE smartphone has now been spotted being benchmarked on GFXBench.

In terms of this new and currently unknown smartphone, the device is currently going by the BV0800 model number. Which does not provide any useful information in itself. However, along with the benchmarking, a number of the specs have been confirmed. As such, it clear that the ZTE BV0800 makes use of a 5.2-inch form factor, while the display adopts a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Inside, the listing confirms that the ZTE BV0800 comes packing 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 quad-core processor.

Interestingly, as well as the rear camera being a 13-megapixel camera, the front-facing camera is also a 13-megapixel camera. Which does suggest that this very well could be marketed as a ‘selfie phone’. Just as interestingly, the listing also seems to detail that unit tested was tested while running on Android 7.0 (Nougat). While that in itself is not confirmation that the device will definitely hit the market running Android Nougat, if it does, it will be one of the first, if not the first, ZTE device to come to market running Android Nougat out of the box. Although, that would also of course depend on when the ZTE BV0800 does come to market and whether anything else is released from the company in the meantime. Either way, according to this latest benchmark, the takeaway is likely to be that ZTE looks ready to release a new smartphone which will likely be more of a mid-range handset, be selfie-oriented and will come running on Android 7.0 out of the box.
