ZTE has quite a lot of interesting smartphone releases lately. Their new handsets offer really good value for the money. However, a lot of them are only exclusive to the United States. And this newcomer, the ZTE Blade Z Max, is the same old story.
The new ZTE Blade Z Max is a tall device with a 6-inch screen at 1080p — which is protected from minor scratches thanks to its 2.5D Dragontrail Glass.
Inside it’s being powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor aided by 2GB of RAM. The chipset itself was intended for the budget market, so we shouldn’t expect too much from its performance.
And keeping up with the 2017 trend, the ZTE Blade Z Max features a dual-camera setup at the back. There’s a 16-megapixel primary shooter that’s backed with a 2-megapixel one for calculating depth details. You wouldn’t get any optical zoom or wide-angle capabilities, but at least you can take images with a synthetic bokeh effect.
Lastly, the device’s highlight feature is its substantial 4,080mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0 support.
