Update: Check out our exclusive interview with Jeff Yee, from ZTE, on the phones and more below:

ZTE is ready to surprise once more at Mobile World Congress this year. Their Axon 7 series have been a success in past years and now, the manufacturer is trying to take the lead by launching an affordable handset with premium features (we’re not referring just to design) #mobilemagic

Rumor is ZTE will show off their first phone with 18:9 display this month at the trade show in Barcelona. The bezelless design won’t belong to a premium device, though; no, it will debut on top of a mid-ranger chassis. The Blade V9 will sport it, alongside a dual rear camera and a pretty good battery cell.

The phone is said to feature:

  • a 5.7-inch display
  • Android Oreo 8.0 from the box
  • 2GB and 3GB of RAM options
  • 16GB or 32GB of internal storage
  • 13MP front camera
  • 16MP with 5MP dual rear camera module
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 450
  • microSD card slot
  • 3,200 mAh battery

The memory and storage options were confirmed by a recent listing approved by the FCC. The device’ ID code that appeared in this context was “SRQ-ZTEBLADEV9″ which clearly points to the smartphone developed by ZTE.

We’ll have to wait and test the phone ourselves before giving any verdict, but on paper, Blade V9 looks like a “steal”! For less than $300 (approximated price), users should get a budget phone with a premium look – very attractive combination.
