ZTE unveils the Blade S6 4G LTE with 5-inch display, 13MP camera and more


On Wednesday, January 28, ZTE officially unveiled the latest addition to their Blade lineup of smartphones, the Blade S6 4G LTE.

The handset manages to pack plenty of noteworthy features into the thin shell, and it does it all with a pretty cheap price tag at the end of it all. As far as features go, the Blade S6 4G LTE packs a 5-inch IPS LCD 720p display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor under the hood and 16GB of built-in storage. There’s a microSD card slot to expand that memory, though. ZTE threw in a 13-megapixel camera on the back, and front-facing shooter is of the 5-megapixel variety.

The Blade S6 4G LTE is running Android 5.0 Lollipop underneath ZTE’s proprietary MiFavor 3.0 user interface, and it also includes the company’s Smart Sense gesture support. Owners will be able to open up Play Music, snap a series of photos, or even turn on a flashlight with just a quick gesture.

The device measures in at 7.7mm thin and it will be available in matte pink or silver.

ZTE notes that the handset will be available in select markets through Amazon and eBay and that it will cost $250. In Hong Kong, the Blade S6 4G LTE will be launched exclusively with carrier CSL.

    Not too shabby.

    It’d be nice to see an lte world phone (EUTRAN).. something that supports the u.s. standard (AWS1/UMTS band IV/LTE-FDD (full & half duplex)) as well as asian lte tdd standard. Dual sims would be fine.

    Although, even the u.s. standard is so fragmented in terms of bands, frequencies:
    2/25 (1900), 4 (1700), 5 (850) and 17/12/13/17 (700), 26 (800) and 41 (2500)
