New ZTE Blade C (V807) with Android Jelly Bean coming soon
ZTE’s Blade series of Android smartphones is quite successful, as it’s offering decent performance at an affordable price. The Chinese company has sold millions of Blade handsets around the world since the first model was launched (back in late 2010).
Now, a new member of the family is about to be released. Called ZTE Blade C, the new smartphone is the first in the series to run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean from day one.
The Bluetooth SIG reveals that the Blade C is also known as ZTE V807, ZTE V889S, and ZTE T807. The V889S is already available for purchase in China, where it costs only 699 CNY – meaning about €84, or $112. This being said, the Blade C should arrive in Europe for a similarly low price.
According to ZTE, the Blade C / V807 has been designed to “capture a larger share of the low-end market”. Its features include a 4 inch WVGA display, 3G, 3MP rear camera, Bluetooth 4.0, dual-core 1 GHz MediaTek MTK 6577 processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, and a 1,600 mAh battery. The handset measures 124 x 64 x 11 mm.
Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly when the ZTE Blade C will be launched in Europe, and neither in what countries. But we’ll keep you posted.
