If at the end of the year one of ZTE’s proposals for ZTE Blade 9 materialized, now it’s time to meet his successor, a model that the Asian company has presented taking advantage of the celebration of MWC2019 in Barcelona. ZTE Blade V10 is a terminal focused on the struggle to gain a privileged space in a medium range in which competition is harder than ever.
This ZTE Blade 10, which is the name it receives, inherits some of the specifications that the previous model already showed. Continuity that is not exempt from the logical improvements that in this case come both for an improved hardware as well as for a slightly more stylized design.

“Almost” all screen and with notch
The ZTE Blade 10 is a successor to the V9 that half-way saw how the Blade V9 Vita arrived, a model that is committed to a design in which the notch returns to make an appearance, although they like to see how little too Little manufacturers have opted for a small model.
For the rest and attending only to the aesthetic section in this first contact, we find a front in which the screen occupies almost the entire extension and only the lower chin prevents offering a greater occupation of the front.
In the rear area reserved space for the fingerprint sensor to which ZTE continues to offer a classic position that has worked so well up to now and a gap for the camera, which now consists of two lenses.
The screen offers a generous diagonal of 6.3 inches, significantly increasing the size from the ZTE Blade V9. This offers coverage of 90.3% of the surface achieving a resolution FHD + or what in numbers come to be 2280 x 1080 pixels with a density of 400 PPI
Two models, two capacities
In a unibody body, the interior is watertight, but if it could be opened without problems we would run into an Octacore processor at 2.1 GHz of which we do not know the model. ZTE has not made it public.
The ZTE Blade V10 will arrive in two models based on its capacity: on the one hand, one with 3 GB of RAM that will have 32 GB of storage capacity and another with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of capacity. There will then be to see how many are free to be used by the user, although it is true that if there are few, you can always use the slot for microSD cards.
Multimedia section: Front camera with AI
When talking about the cameras we started with the front camera, a simple camera with a resolution of 32 megapixels in which the manufacturer has added AI technology “Smart Selfie” (smart selfie). With it seeks to adjust and refine all photographs and create high quality images without losing any detail. An improvement that also allows you to identify more than 300 scenes in “preview” mode by intelligently adapting the camera to get the best pictures.
As for the rear camera, this happens to be composed and consists of a 16 megapixel lens plus another 5 megapixel with which the brand tries to facilitate the obtaining of optimal photographs even when it is in low light situations.
Android Foot Factory
At the height of the year that we are, we should not highlight it, but seeing other releases from the competition, we should almost thank the brands that launch their new models with Android Foot from the factory, as in the case of ZTE. An Android P version adapted to the MiFavor 9.0 interface.
The battery that includes this model has a capacity of 3200 mAh and only the day to day will tell us if it is enough to power a generously sized screen. The rest of add-ons, the expected ones: Bluetooth 4.2 (the standard 5.0 is missing), input with USB Type C, 3.5 jack and Wi-Fi 2.4G / 5G 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac.
Price and availability
Both the ZTE Blade V10 and the rest of the new smartphones of the Blade family will be launched in China, Europe and Latin America in March 2019. In the case of the ZTE Blade V10, it will be available in three colors (black, blue and green) at an unknown price for now.
