ZTE Blade V7 and ZTE Blade V7 Lite went official at the MWC today. Both are targeting the young people and those with young hearts, as ZTE likes to say, and both will become available in selected markets later this year.
Both phones support smart gesture controls and run on the latest available Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.

The ZTE Blade V7 is made entirely of metal and is thick just 3.5mm at its thinnest point. It packs a 5.2” 1080p display covered with a 2.5D glass, and runs on the MediaTek MT 6753 chipset with an octa-core 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Mali-T720 GPU, and 2GB of RAM.
The Blade V7 features a 13MP rear camera with a dual-tone dual-LED flash. It has a 5MP front snapper, which can use the screen as a flash. The rest of the highlighted specs include 16GB expandable storage, LTE connectivity, and a 2,500 mAh battery.
The Blade V7 will be available in Germany, Spain, South Africa, Ethiopia, and Mexico in the middle of 2016. The pricing is yet to be announced.
