ZTE today added yet another device to their portfolio by launching the Blade S7 in China today. The ZTE Blade S7 is a successor to the Blade S6 which launched at the beginning of this year.
The Chinese OEM has ditched the iPhone look alike design this around to opt for a dual glass body with metal to the side. The front of the device sports a same 5 inch Full HD (1920x1080) display with a 2.5D glass for improved viewing angles.
The USP of the Blade S7 however lies in the larger 13MP selfie snapper found on the top right corner of the device. Surprisingly ZTE has included a LED flash for the front camera. The ZTE Blade S7 has carried the same 13MP camera to the back of the device. However ZTE has included a LED Flash!
Nothing much is changed under the hood, when compared with the Blade S6. It still comes with a Snapdragon 615 octa core SoC along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
On major difference on the front of the ZTE Blade S7 is the absence of the Halo home button. Apparently ZTE has replaced that with a rectangular home button which also doubles up as a Fingerprint sensor.
Just like the ZTE Blade S6, the new iteration comes with a slim profile - 7.2 mm - and runs on Android Lollipop (5.1.1). The Geekbuying listing of the ZTE S7 quotes a price of $277.99 i.e. Rs 18,000.
