ZTE’s launching a new smartphone in the US today. The Blade 11 Prime interestingly has big Blade branding on the back, and the only mention of ZTE is on the lower side where the small regulatory text is.
The Blade 11 Prime is already available from both Visible and Yahoo Mobile, both of which are MVNOs operating on Verizon’s network. The phone is priced at $192 outright, or you can buy it on 24 monthly installments of $8.
If you’re wondering exactly what specs that amount of cash will net you, here are the details. The Blade 11 Prime has a 6.52-inch 720×1600 touchscreen, the MediaTek Helio P22 chipset at the helm, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, a triple rear camera system (16 MP main + 8 MP ultrawide + 2 MP depth), an 8 MP selfie snapper, and a 4,000 mAh battery with wireless charging and wired reverse charging.
It runs Android 11 and has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor inside the power button. It measures 166 x 76 x 8.7 mm and weighs 190g.
