ZTE Entering U.S. Market Once Again With Two New Devices

Now that the export ban on ZTE has been lifted, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is taking small yet cautious steps in entering the U.S. market once again.

As a way of marking its comeback to the U.S. market, ZTE has unveiled two new entry-level devices that will be compatible with U.S. carriers.

Earlier today, ZTE took the wraps off of the Blade Max View and the Blade Max 2s. What's remarkable about these two phones is that they cost under $200 yet manage to be equipped with big batteries and screens. In more detail, here are the specs of these two phones:

Blade Max View

The ZTE Blade Max View comes with a 6-inch Full HD+ display. It is powered by a Snapdragon 435 processor with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot for expandable storage. There is a dual-camera configuration on the back featuring a 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel sensor. In front, there is room for an 8-megapixel camera. This phone includes a 4000mAh battery, fingerprint reader, USB-C, Bluetooth 4.2, and dual-band Wi-Fi. It runs on a clean version of Android 7.0 Nougat.

The Blade Max View will be available on Verizon Wireless and GSM networks.

Price: $199

Blade Max 2s

Following the former, the ZTE Blade Max 2s comes with the same 6-inch Full HD+ display, fingerprint reader, and 4000mAh battery. It varies with its 1.4GHz processor with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, and microSD card slot. For its camera, the phone comes with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front camera.

Apart from compatibility with GSM networks, the Blade Max 2s is compatible with Sprint's LTE network.

Price: $179

Both of these phones are available on ZTE's website, B&H, and Newegg.

  1. Um, import ban, not export ban...

    1. It’s an export ban to the US from the company’s perspective.

      It’s an import ban from the US perspective. Food for thought.

    2. Two sides of the same coin...

  2. Impressive specs for an entry level phone. I am especially impressed with the 4,000 MHA battery. Can anybody explain to me what the resolution for the 'full HD+ screen' is?

    1. Full HD+ is 1080p. They changed calling phones 1080p when they changed the aspect ratios from 16:9 to 18:9 last year.

  3. Full HD 16:9 is 1920x1080. Full HD+ is the new super tall 18:9 ratio aka 2:1 2160x1080. Math 1080 x 2 = 2160. The phone height is now double the width. Flip the numbers around for phone width x height.

  4. Why would a phone released this late come with Android 7? Yikes
