Lately we haven’t heard anything new about a new ZTE Blade phone. The last time was in October when Verizon’s Yahoo Mobile began offering the affordable ZTE Blade A3Y. That followed the ZTE Blade A3 Prime which was announced with a removable battery in June. The ZTE Blade 10 series is now getting a follow up as the company has just introduced the new ZTE Blade 11 Prime. It’s probably just one of several variants ZTE USA would release.
The ZTE Blade 11 Prime The name sounds premium, but it’s very affordable at under $ 200. It’s just a 4G LTE phone, but it impresses with the triple rear camera system and wireless and reverse charging. The phone also offers ample onboard storage for its price.
Like the ZTE Blade A3Y, the ZTE Blade 11 Prime is also available on Yahoo Mobile and Visible. It’s only $ 192, so it’s a great value, especially if you’re looking for a new smartphone.
ZTE USA CEO Brad Li describes the product: “The Blade 11 Prime is balanced with a careful selection of features that enhance the user experience without increasing the price. Our approach together with the Visible offering is like a breath of fresh air in a market that experiences price inflation every year. We expect consumers to agree as sales of our Blade smartphones continue to rise. “
The ZTE Blade 11 Prime features a decent 8MP front camera plus the 16MP + 8MP + 2MP cameras on the rear. AI scene detection features and an 80-degree wide-angle lens are also part of the package. The 4000 mAh battery charges via a USB-C cable, but can also be charged wirelessly.
Other features include a large 6.5-inch screen, 64GB onboard storage, 4GB of RAM, microSD card slot for memory expansion (2TB max), and a power button that doubles as a fingerprint sensor. The smartphone is ready in sky blue with a textured plastic back.
