ZTE Unveils Blade Z Max w/ 6-inch Screen, Dual Rear Cameras for $129

The Blade X Max, revealed earlier this year, seemed like a true successor to last year’s ZMax Pro. We mentioned this in our review, and we were overall impressed with the device much like we were the Pro. Now, ZTE is announcing the true successor to last year’s budget hit with the Blade Z Max that ups the ante for what you get for just $129.

Specifically, the Blade Z Max sports dual rear cameras. There’s a 16MP main shooter paired with a 2MP secondary lens. Together, this camera setup can shoot bokeh, portrait, and true monochrome photos. This lines up with the trend we’re seeing lately on higher-end devices like the iPhone 7 Plus, OnePlus 5, and Moto Z2 Force. Considering this phone is just $129, it should be interesting to see what quality of its photos is the result of the hardware onboard. For reference, there’s an 8MP selfie camera.

Other specifications include a large 6-inch 1080p IPS LCD display, a Snapdragon 435 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat. There’s also a huge 4,080mAh battery that should no doubt get you through at least a full day’s worth of use. It’s rechargeable via the USB-C port on the bottom using Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology. Finally, the device also features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor that we’re seeing more and more of on budget-oriented smartphones nowadays.

The Blade Z Max is available now for pre-order for just $129. It’ll launch exclusively on MetroPCS August 28th for the same price. You can learn more about the device here.
