We say so as a new ZTE branded smartphone has appeared on the company's Spanish website. Dubbed as the Blade V9, it is the first ZTE phone to feature a display with the aspect ratio of 18:9. Talking about the design, the smartphone sports a double sided glass design. The glass on the rear panel appears to be reflective like HTC's U lineup of smartphones.

While the bezels around the display are narrow, the ZTE Blade V9 can't be called a bezel-less phone. Especially, the top and bottom bezels are pretty prominent. The device doesn't feature a physical home button at the front and the fingerprint sensor is placed at the back. Design-wise, the Blade V9 is quite an improvement over its predecessor Blade V8.
