ZTE Blade V8 with dual rear cameras leaks ahead of CES unveiling

Dual rear cameras are starting to appear on more and more smartphones lately, and the next one to sport such an arrangement is ZTE's Blade V8. The phone will be made official at CES in early January, but it's been leaked today in Russia in a few live images.

The Blade V8 is apparently going to be positioned by ZTE as a direct competitor to Huawei's Honor 8, which is an affordable handset with good specs (and, incidentally, a dual rear camera of its own).

ZTE's answer to the Honor 8 comes with a brushed metal body and its fingerprint scanner embedded in the physical Home button underneath the display. It boasts a 5.2-inch 1080p touchscreen with 2.5D glass on top, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 435 chipset at the helm, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage, and 7.7mm thickness.

The selfie camera is a 13 MP unit, while the rear sensors have 13 MP and 2 MP resolutions. The Blade V8 will run Android 7.0 Nougat underneath ZTE's own MiFavor UI 4.0. It should be available in many colors, including pink. No information about pricing has been leaked, but the Honor 8 it's aiming for costs $399 so for this device to have a chance it needs to be at most that expensive, but preferably a bit cheaper. We'll find out which it is soon enough, since CES starts in a few days.
