ZTE, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, has released two low-cost phones in its popular Blade series, but they are not yet available in all countries.
ZTE is known for introducing low-cost phones, having introduced the world’s cheapest phone with a fingerprint sensor in 2017.
Now, the same company has quietly launched two of its most successful and popular Blade series phones, the ‘A72’ and ‘A52,’ in Indonesia, with plans to expand to other countries in the region, including India and Pakistan, in the near future.۔
The ‘A72’ from the company has a 5.6-inch screen and a 13-megapixel main camera, which is considered a very non-standard camera nowadays.
The back of the phone has a 2 megapixel macro camera in addition to the main camera; however, fans are dissatisfied with the main camera, as well as the front-facing 5 megapixel selfie camera.
However, the battery in the ‘A72’ has been kept at 6000 mAh, which is more powerful than the batteries in expensive phones, and the phone also comes with a powerful charger(Fast charging 25W).
The A72 has three gigabytes of RAM, Android 11, and the company’s proprietary MyFour 11 software.
On November 27, 2018, Unisoc announced the SC9863A, an 8-core chipset manufactured in a 28-nanometer process. It has four Cortex-A55 processor cores running at 1600 MHz and four Cortex-A55 processor cores running at 1200 MHz.
The Pakistani price of this phone has been kept at Rs 23,000, and it is expected to be released by the end of the month.
Similarly, the company has unveiled the ‘A52,’ which features a 5.6-inch screen and a 13-megapixel main camera on the back, as well as a 2-megapixel secondary camera.
On the front of its second phone, the company has included a 5-megapixel selfie camera, as well as a 5000mAh battery.
The A52 comes with 2GB of RAM and uses all the same features and software as the A72.
The ‘A52’ has been kept at Rs 18,000 in Pakistan, and it is expected to be released by the end of this month.
Although both the ZTE mobiles are said to be reasonably priced, consumers are expressing frustration over their cameras.
