After hitting other markets in Asia and other countries, ZTE's Blade series of phones is finally making its US debut with its V8 Pro. The phone features a 5.5 inch display with two rear cameras and Android Droid M. Aside from appearing here at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, you can preorder it now for $230. Though you wouldn't expect much for that low of a price, the V8 Pro offers a decent amount of hardware. It has Two 13 megapixel cameras on the back, which we've seen before in other high end phones. The V8 Pro uses its two cameras to create photos with a bokeh effect. Images have blurred backgrounds for a nice dramatic look that you can adjust after snapping a picture. Another fun feature turns your photos into black and white sketches straight out of a-ha's Take on Me music video. The phone also has a fingerprint reader expandable memory and dual-sim capabilities the last of which is useful for anyone who travels frequently or have to use two numbers these days phones we can sit on the high end of mid-range are getting cheaper and cheaper so far from what we've seen the V8 Pro work smoothly and with a still camera for just $230 It's off to a pretty good start.
