We're not sure how the United States market will receive the phone but ZTE Mobile Devices' VP of Product Strategy and Marketing Jeff Yee believes it "will provide consumers with an optimized, powerful Android experience created to allow them to do more on an entry-level smartphone than ever thought before".

DesignThe V9 is the highest-end of ZTE's Blade series, and as such employs a glass-on-both-sides design to keep up appearances, while the V9 Vita goes with a plastic body.

Moving on to the imaging, ZTE has equipped the Blade V9 with the now trending dual-camera setup. Pricing for the Blade V9 will start at €269 ($331 USD) while the Blade V9 Vita will start at €179 ($220 USD).

In terms of specifications, the Blade V9 runs Android Oreo.

The Vita has a 3,200mAh capacity battery that's sizable for a 5.5-inch 720p display. It is powered by a Qualcomm's Snapdragon 450 SoC, which comprises of an octa-core CPU clocked at 1.8 GHz and an Adreno 506 GPU. The front camera supports Faceb detection for unlocking and waking. Ticking away inside is a Snapdragon 450 chipset - not the most powerful around, but perfectly adequate for every day use. The ZTE Blade V9 is available in 2GB RAM and 16GB storage, or 3GB RAM and 32GB storage variants. The device also sports a 5 Megapixel of selfie shooter camera as Secondary Camera for taking selfies and making Video calls.
