Mobile World Congress 2018
ZTE's Blade V8 Mini and V8 Lite mix metal, Nougat and dual camerasThe two new Blades won't cost much money, but you'll still get a metal Android Nougat phone with a dual-camera setup that lets you create depth effects in your shots.
Not everyone at the party needs to dress to impress at Mobile World Congress this year. That's definitely the case with ZTE. The Chinese company's two new phones, the ZTE Blade V8 Mini and the 8 Lite aren't particularly noteworthy in terms of specs and features but they do build out ZTE's family of affordable devices. The fancier of the pair, the Blade V8 Mini, has two cameras. A 13 and two megapixel shooter on the back, that'll let you shoot photos with blurred backgrounds for an artsy effect. Or you can capture 3D-like images by combining two photos together. The Blade V8 Lite shares a five inch display and Android Nougat with the V8 Mini. But it's other specs are scaled down. Highlights are an eight megapixel camera and a fingerprint reader. The V8 mini will be available in countries in Asia Pacific and Europe, while the V8 light will roll out in three colors to Italy, Germany and Spain. They don't have prices yet but expect them to be cheap.
