ZTE is one of the biggest Chinese phone makers & today it has unveiled its new trio of affordable phones that will be at its sales in late 2015:
these are ZTE V3 Youth Edition, the ZTE V3 Energy Edition, and ZTE V3 Extreme Edition. Priced between $160 and $250.
The three new V3 variants have similar specs and they differ only on network support grounds. All of these phones feature sturdy aluminum body & come with a fingerprint scanner – two features that are traditionally considered as premium.
No doubt, the phones have an affordable price tag; while not exactly a low-end affair, the prices for these phone start at the fairly affordable $160 (999 yuan).
ZTE is known to be in a spat with Meizu over use of its round capacitive key and and now it is also trying to compete with Meizu’s thunder by hosting its unveiling on the same day as the Meizu M2 official unveiling.
All three phones show up a 5.5” 1080p display, 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage (via microSD card), and 3,000mAh non-removable battery.
The devices also feature 13MP f/2.2 rear snapper and 5MP front-facing camera with the same aperture. The ZTE V3 family boots Nubia 3.0 UI and of course on top of Android 5.1 Lollipop.
The V3 Youth version features dual 4G LTE network support and will be offered to you in Silver color, while the V3 Energy and V3 Extreme models will be sold in gold.
So, the ZTE has priced the V3 Youth at 999 Yuan ($160) & the V3 Energy at 1,299 Yuan ($210). The V3 Extreme edition bundles with a few special accessories and it costs you 1,499 Yuan ($240). [source]
