On the day one of MWC 2018, ZTE has launched two new smartphones. There is something special about the night, and the ZTE Blade V9 camera enables consumers to capture this magic.

The ZTE Blade V9 Vita is the cheap and light alternative to the normal-sized V9 with dimensions of 146.8 x 68.7 x 7.6mm. Low-light photography in general should be particularly improved on the V9 as ZTE has opted for a large f/1.8 aperture to let in more light.

The ZTE Blade V9 Vita is a standout budget phone thanks to its trendy 18:9 display that's become popular thanks to higher-end all-screen phones. 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 ZTE Tempo Go, on the other hand, comes with a 5-inch 854 x 480 display, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage. 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.

Now over to the camera. In terms of optics, the smartphone sports a combination of a 16-megapixel and a 5-megapixel sensors. Both setups employ the secondary lens to receive lighting and depth information and adjust shutter speed for the main sensor when taking regular pictures. The company might even revisit those 512MB devices. The front camera supports Faceb detection for unlocking and waking. It runs on Android Oreo out of the box, with support for some form of facial recognition. There is one let down. It also comes with a 3.5 mm headphone jack. I prefer the jacks.

Boats that exceed this limit are often treated as potential arms-smuggling vessels by the Israeli forces and may come under fire. The deceased teenager was identified as 18-year-old Ismail Saleh Abu Reyala.

The Blade V9 Vita is basically the same phone, but with slightly smaller size and watered-down specs.

The smartphone comes with 5.45-inch HD+ 18:9 aspect ratio display and comes with glass back. Imaging is handled by a 16MP sensor paired with a 5MP sensor on the back, while the front camera has a 13MP sensor.

The device will be available within the next few months at selected markets across Europe, Mexico, and China.

The sleek and effortless design of the ZTE Blade V9 features an industry leading screen-to-body ratio of 83.6%, and provides a superior user experience that allows consumers to quickly and efficiently navigate with minimal reach.
