ZTE Blade Force is the Latest Phone to Support HPUE Technology

ZTE Blade Force
Earlier today, ZTE unveiled the ZTE Blade Force as the latest Boost Mobile device. And just like many other ZTE devices, the Blade Force comes with decent specs sold at a reasonable price tag.

The specs on this mid-priced smartphone include a 5.5-inch IPS HD display, a 1.4 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 processor with 2GB of RAM, 16GB native storage, and up to 128GB memory expansion via the microSD card slot. To take pictures with the phone, there is an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing sensor. The phone also includes a 3,000 mAh battery that allows the Blade Force to last a full day of use. Upon release, the phone runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS.

Perhaps the thing that makes the Blade Force a remarkable device is that it supports Sprint's High Performance User Equipment (HPUE) tecnology. What this generally means is that it allows LTE connection speeds of up to 1Gbps. Although it isn't a guarantee that this speed will be obtained, HPUE will allow you to get faster connection speeds in an area where it is already supported.

Usually, HPUE technology is supported by higher-priced devices. Boost's ZTE Blade Force and ZTE MAX XL are the least expensive devices to support this technology.

The Blade Force costs $130 and is available for Boost Mobile customers or those willing to switch to the MVNO.

  1. This high tech gee whiz sneaking in to such an 'average' priced model, telling something....what is that, is the question!

  2. Metro's Blade Z Max is a better deal.

    Nothing to see here.

  3. Actually HPUE is the technology inside iphone 7 galaxy s7 and newer, To get this in a phone for less than $130 is great, I am on boost and use iphone 7 I run speedtest all day and see speeds 60ms ping 125 mb download and 10 mp upload everywhere I go. this is cool that a cheap phone will not get the LTE PLUS network of sprint.

  4. the ZTE Max XL on Boost is the cheapest phone with HPUE at 99.99

    1. You are right, the post has been updated.

    2. Also the new LG X Charge. It supports HPUE and is $129.99 at Best Buy.

    3. Which LG X Charge? There's one for Cricket and another for Verizon.

    4. @anonymous 6:10 pm Oct 13.. Sorry for the late reply. Boost mobile has the X Charge as well. Best Buy has been selling it for a while, and it just landed on their site today. It says it supports HPUE.

  5. HPUE and 2500 MHz deployment increased Sprint's average download speed by 33% compared to last year. They are getting ready to deploy Massive MIMO, which will increase network capacity 10X.
