Michail, 22 May 2019

ZTE unveiled its entry-level Blade A7 at the beginning of the month and now it's adding the even more affordable ZTE Blade A5 2019 to its lineup. The phone offers an 18:9 screen, octa-core processor and affordable price.

The Blade A5 2019 features a 5.45-inch HD+ screen with an 8MP f/2.4 selfie cam sitting in the classic full bezel above it.

Around the back, it has a single 13MP f/2.0 camera with LED flash. The phone is powered by the Unisoc SC9863A chipset with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage, which can be expanded via the microSD card slot. Battery wise we’re looking at a 2,600 mAh cell which can be topped up via microUSB. The phone also sports a 3.5mm headphone jack.
