The Blade V9 sports a 5.7-inch 18:9 FHD+ display, with minimal bezels.

ZTE on Sunday added a pair of smartphones to its Blade portfolio of devices. Among other thing, the Blade V9 and Blade V9 Vita bring trendy new 18:9 panels to a more affordable price segment - somewhat of a trend this year.

The ZTE Blade V9 is larger than the Blade V9 Vita, which comes with a matte finish aluminum strip running around the edges as it's a dense-feeling device. Pricing for the Blade V9 will start at €269 ($331 USD) while the Blade V9 Vita will start at €179 ($220 USD). Android Go is based on Android 8.1 Oreo, more up-to-date than even some more expensive flagships. Specs include a 3180 mAh battery with quick charging, a single 20MP camera which serves as both the front and rear camera thanks to the folding design, a side mounted fingerprint scanner, and expandable storage.

Under the hood, the smartphone makes use of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset that is clocked at 1.8GHz.

The Blade V9 Vita will be offered in two variants, one with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage and one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. In terms of optics, the smartphone sports a combination of a 16-megapixel and a 5-megapixel sensors. The new Tempo Go smartphone is company's first smartphone to run with Android Go operating system. Smartphones based on the new OS will run a totally different set of Google apps, carrying the "Go" suffix.

Again, ZTE says that the Tempo Go should be available to purchase on its website starting today, although at the time of this writing we have not yet confirmed that is indeed the case.
