A new ZTE smartphone has received certification on TENAA, where it is listed as ZTE S6. This should be the ZTE Blade S6 2016 edition model, most likely the successor to the Blade S6 that was released last year.

Recall that ZTE launched the Blade S6  early last year with a 5-inch display, Snapdragon 615 SoC, and 2GB RAM, among a host of other specs. Then, later on, the Blade S6 Plus which is a larger and slightly more powerful version of the Blade S6 followed suit.

The ZTE Blade S6 2016 edition packs a lot of specs and features, different from last year’s Blade S6. The device seems to sport what looks like a fingerprint scanner at the back, colored in orange. It may be something else not yet known, though.

As earlier hinted, the smartphone is listed as ZTE S6 on TENAA and the listing shows the device comes with a 5.5-inch TFT HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The device is powered by  a 1GHz Quad-core processor which is believed to be a Snapdragon SoC but the model name wasn’t listed.

On the memory bank, the device packs just 1GB RAM as opposed to the 2GB version found on last year’s ZTE Blade S6. It also comes with 16GB of on-board storage which is expandable up to a further 64GB via microSD card.

Just like its predecessor, the ZTE S6 boots Android 5.1 Lollipop from the go but the 2016 S6 features just an 8MP rear shooter with LED flash and a 5MP front-facing selfie camera.

According to the TENAA listing, the ZTE S6 comes with a 3800mAh capacity battery and is available in Golden color option only. The device measures 157.2 × 76.4 × 9 mm and weighs 195 grams. Connectivity options available include 4G LTE, 3G, 2G, Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, FM Radio and a host of others.
