ZTE has just announced another one of its budget devices, the Blade L2. This 5-inch smartphone is already starting its itinerary in Europe before it heads out for the rest of the world.
ZTE is probably more known for its low-spec yet affordable products, particularly its Blade line of smartphones. The latest installment of that series is the Blade L2. As you might expect, it sports rather mediocre hardware, though it might exactly be what a casual Android smartphone user needs.
The display isn't exactly impressive, even at 5 inches. Resolution is a rather platry 854x480, which would look quite poor given the size of the screen. It runs on a yet unnamed 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, which would probably just give enough power for basic necessities. There is 1 GB of RAM though, which is double that of the bare minimum. Internal storage is marked at 4 GB with no mention of a microSD card slot, but we'll just hope that there is one. Sadly it doesn't even have 4G network support. It also runs only Android 4.2, which could be another point of disappointment. A 5 megapixel rear camera, with features like face detection and Smile Shot, and a 0.3 megapixel front-facing shooter rounds up the features of the Blade L2.
Devices such as these would usually come with a low price tag to make them even a bit enticing, but ZTE hasn't yet revealed what the cost would be. The ZTE Blade L2 is already available in Spain and Greece. Later this year, it will be making its way to other European territories like Germany, the UK, and Slovakia before spreading to international markets such as Mexico, Chile, Columbia, and Venezuela.
