ZTE Tempo Go is an Android Go for the US

ZTE brings premium features to its mid-range Blade line

ZTE has officially announced the much awaited ZTE Blade V9 and ZTE Blade V9 Vita smartphones at an event at MWC 2018 in Barcelona, Spain.

As for the second phone, it's called the V9 Vita and takes things down a notch.

It checks off a lot of other once-flagship-level boxes, too. Surprisingly, even though the Blade V9 is a mid-range smartphone, it comes pre-loaded with Android 8.1 Oreo OS with a custom theme from ZTE.

The non-final hardware we saw showed promise, enough to become a contender for our best cheap phones list eventually.

Speaking of which, while we don't know exact pricing, we do know the V9 will cost under $300 while the V9 Vita will cost under $200. The bigger Blade V9 has a glass build on both sides and an aluminum strip, sandwiched in between. It will be available in a choice of black, grey, blue or gold.

First Alert Forecast: Few showers Sunday, rain chance peaks Monday
The primary concern will be heavy rain and flooding, with an occasional strong wind gust or two with some of these storms. The rain will start around 6:00pm but the heavy rain and possible thunderstorms won't happen until later in the evening.

The 5.45-inch screen (rounded up to 5.5-inch on some specs sheets) is the right size for a lot of people. Each has an 18:9 aspect ratio for the display, dual rear cameras, 3.5mm headphone jacks, microUSB, memory card slot, and the usual fare of connectivity.

We would have also liked to seen more the ability to wake the device by tap tapping or double tapping the the screen, but you can't expect everything at a low price. Prices start at €269 (around $330) for the Blade V9 and €179 (around $220) for the Blade V9 Vita.

In the camera department, the Blade V9 is equipped with a 16MP, f/1.8 main shooter, with an Omnivision OV16B10 sensors and a secondary 5MP one, to help along the way and enable features like real-time bokeh and "Re-Bokeh", for adjusting the focus afterwards.

More opportunities for unique combination photos. The front camera includes a 5-megapixel sensor that can capture 8-megapixel snaps and there is standard PDAF software available in the Blade V9 Vita.

It's created to do the basics with its Snapdragon 435 chipset. It's not exactly a powerhouse but it's capable of running most Android tasks. There will be two version of the Blade V9 offered, one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The specs make it ideal for casual users with limited requirements.
