Continuing our IFA 2014 cleanup, it’s over to Zhongxing Telecommunication Equipment Corporation, or “ZTE” for short.
The Chinese chaps have launched not one, not two, but three new phones, namely the Blade Vec 3G, Blade Vec 4G, and Kis 3 MAX. Man, those are some weird-ass names.
Diving straight into ZTE Blade Vec 3G specs, we have a quad-core MediaTek processor clocked at 1.3GHz, 8MP/5MP camera combo, and 8GB internal storage.
As for the ZTE Blade Vec 4G, specs include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 8MP or 13MP on the rear (depending on region) and 16GB internal storage. Needless to say, this guy supports 4G, too.
Curiously, if you opt for the otherwise-superior ZTE Blade Vec 4G, you're getting just 1 or 2MP on the front - again dependant on region, so you can upload your selfies quicker, but they won't look as good.
Shared ZTE Blade Vec 3G/4G specs include 1GB of RAM, microSD compatibility up to 32GB, a 5in 720p display, 2,300mAh battery, and KitKat Android 4.4.
ZTE Blade Vec 3G price comes in at €179, with the 4G model demanding €229. This next guy, the ZTE Kis 3 MAX, is significantly cheaper at €99, though it’s not hard to see why.
ZTE Kis 3 MAX specs include a 4.5in 854 x 480 display, 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal storage, a dual-core MediaTek processor, 5MP rear camera, 2MP front shooter, and 1,850mAh battery.
There’s no mention of a UK release for the ZTE Blade Vec 3G or 4G, but we will get the Kis 3 MAX (<insert obligatory comment about Motorola Moto G>).
