We have been hearing rumors about about the ZTE Blade S6 for some time now and the company has finally made the phone official revealing the ZTE Blade S6 specs and price.

The company is not just targeting its home market with this device, in fact, its plans to go global, reaching out to international markets through the reseller Aliexpress.

The ZTE Blade S6 is the perfect blend of high end specs and affordable price tag. The phone sports a 5-inch 1280 x 720p display with InCell technology which ideal for this kind of size. Inside, it features a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor (MSM8939) with 2GB DDR3 RAM and 16GB eMMC memory.

To keep the price low, ZTE went with a plastic body with the measurements, 144 x 70.7 x 7.7mm. So, its not as thick as some other devices in the market. However, the device feel like its well built and its smooth finish gives it a iPhone 6 like look. Further, you have two color options namely silver and matte pink.


At the back, there is a Sony IMX214 13MP camera and up front, there is a 5MP shooter. Other special features include Hi-Fi sound, dual SIM card slots (both nano SIMS), expandable storage, and 4G LTE connectivity (supported bands are given below). Finally, there is a 2400 mAh battery at the back.

For software, the device comes with the latest Android 5.0 operating system which should run smoothly with the 64-bit processor. ZTE has its own MiFavor UI on top of this OS, which brings additional features such as Smart Sense, making things easier for the user.

Overall, the Blade S6 turns out to be a great offering for $240. It will be available for sale via comebuy’s store on Aliexpress and will ship from warehouses located in Germany and China.
