ZTE Blade S6 launches with decent specs and $249 price tag

ZTE Blade S6 launches with decent specs and 9 price tagRemember a couple of weeks ago we were saying ZTE Blade S6 looks like a Chinese iPhone 6? Well, it’s officially here!

Earlier this morning, ZTE lifted the lid on its Blade S6 smartphone, with the headline being: decent specs at a low price point. Y’know, the usual Chinese smartphone thing. Sweet.

Starting with the name, it’s not clear why the ZTE Blade S6 is so called. There’s no ZTE Blade S5, for example, though we suspect it’s intended to make consumers consider it as a viable alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S6 or even the iPhone 6. Possibly.

Anyway! ZTE Blade S6 specs include a 5in HD display (why not ZTE Blade S5 then?), 8-core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB expandable storage, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, LTE compatibility, 2,400mAh battery, and Android Lollipop 5.0.

One interesting software feature invites users to activate functionality like the ZTE Blade S6’s flashlight with a flick of the wrist. Smart Sense, they’re calling it. Users can similarly use “intuitive and practical sets of gesture and motion controls” to take photographs, play music and more.

ZTE Blade S6 price comes in at $249, which is roughly £164 in our money, though likely closer to £200 in reality.

There’s nothing specific in the press release, though the ZTE Blade S6 is tipped for a UK release. Fancy it?
