The ZTE Blade 6 offers up a Snapdragon 615 and Android 5.0 for $250

ZTE Blade S6

The last time we looked at a ZTE device, it was back in July of last year when the company rolled out the Nubia Z7 lineup. They’ve released various handsets since that time, but their latest has really grabbed our attention. It’s called the ZTE Blade S6, and it’s quite the device at only $250.

If you buy a new Android handset from a retailer today, there’s only a slim chance it will come with Android 5.0 stock. The ZTE Blade S6 will offer Lollipop straight out of the box although you’ll have the company’s MiFavor 3.0 UI on top of it. That said, ZTE has thrown in some cool features on the software side of things including “Smart Sense” motion gestures which allow flip on your flash as a torch or snap  a quick photo.

In terms of specs, the ZTE Blade S6 will hum along nicely thanks to an octa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 615 and 2GB of RAM. You’ll get 16GB of internal storage to work with as well, and the microSD card slot lets you expand things further. The battery is listed at 2,400mAh, which should be plenty of juice to power the 5-inch 720p display.

Selfie snappers will be pleased to know the ZTE Blade S6 has a 5MP sensor on the front with a wide-angle lens, and the rear camera is more than sufficient at 13MP. Connectivity options include Bluetooth, WiFi, A-GPS, FM Radio and LTE. As it’s an “international” device, you’ll also have the added benefit of dual-SIM card slots.

Once you’ve taken in the ZTE Blade S6 specs, you immediately see how attractive the $250 price tag is as you’ll be hard pressed to find an unlocked handset running 5.0 that offers that much bang for your buck. The smartphone will be available in Pink or Silver, and will be sold internationally through AliExpress.
