"The ZTE Blade V9 has redefined the mid-tier industry segment and provides a platform for consumers to truly live without limits", said Lixin Cheng, CEO of ZTE Mobile Devices. That doesn't get you a lot of bang, or a particularly snazzy design, but this still has the honor of being the world's first Android Go phone powered by a Qualcomm processor. ZTE's aim here though, it appears, is to make users forget that, with dual-cameras, quick performance, and 18:9 displays - all of which can be found on the V9 and V9 Vita, but there are some differences to note. The 1.1 GHz quad-core processor present inside the Snapdragon 210 chipset powers the Tempo Go along with 1 GB of RAM. On the back sits dual cameras weighing in at 16MP and 5MP. The company just announced the Blade V9 and Blade V9 Vita at the MWC 2018. There's a 5MP camera on the back and a 2MP on the front, with a FWVGA (480×854) display clocking in at 5.0 inches.

ZTE Blade V9 was found listed on ZTE's Spanish website with complete specifications in December past year. It is powered by the 14nm Snapdragon 450, and comes in two memory configurations-3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.

For under $80, the ZTE Tempo Go provides the flawless complement of technologies and features, which also include a 5MP rear and 2MP front camera and a 2,200mAh battery that can last all day. You can choose between a 13 or 8MP single selfie shooter, with those rear-facing imaging sensors set at 16 and 5MP. Both the variants are expandable via microSD card slot. The front camera supports Faceb detection for unlocking and waking. The smartphone comes with 8GB internal storage, which is further expandable to 32GB via microSD card.

Again, ZTE says that the Tempo Go should be available to purchase on its website starting today, although at the time of this writing we have not yet confirmed that is indeed the case.

ZTE Unveils New Mid-Range Blade V9 Series at MWC 2018

ZTE tells me it stopped producing 512MB phones because the OS essentially required the device's entire memory, but with Android Go, the company now feels more comfortable keeping its 1GB phones around. Other stand-key specs include NFC, fingerprint reader, and a 3,100mAh battery.

ZTE is famous for offering bargain devices and these not only include entry-level phones but some of the most powerful flagships in the market.

The Temp Go wears a polycarbonate body that measures 145.5 x 71.9 x 9.1mm and it weighs 141 grams.
