Affordable ZTE Blade 20 5G announced with Dimensity 720G chip, big screen
ZTE just announced the Blade 20 5G in China, which looks a lot like the ZTE Blade A7s 2020, at least on the outside, that is. The rest of the specs are quite different.
For instance, the ZTE Blade 20 5G is based on the Dimensity 720 chipset and as the name of the handset implies, the SoC supports 5G connectivity. ZTE says that there’s some additional passive cooling (read heatsink) to prevent the chipset from overheating. The handset sports a notched, 6.52-inch IPS LCD panel with a rather tall, 20:9 aspect ratio and low 720 x 1600px resolution. To our surprise, the phone offers 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. We don’t know if it’s expandable at this time.
The camera setup on the back consists of a 16MP f/1.8 main camera, 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide unit and a 2MP sensor for depth information. Whereas the notch on the front houses an 8MP camera for selfies. The battery inside is 4,000 mAh and the Blade 20 5G ships with Android 10 out of the box and ZTE’s custom skin on top called MiFavor 10.5.
The asking price is CNY 1,499 ($224) and comes in Jazzy Gray and Mint Blue. No information regarding release date and price has been disclosed at the time.
