A new smartphone from ZTE’s Blade series has received Wi-Fi certifications. The model number indicates that it’s the successor to the last year’s Blade A520, so it may be called as Blade A530. The details of this new device are pretty scarce but the certification does mention the name of the processor.
It’s the MediaTek MT6739 that the device can come powered with. This suggests the device is going to be an entry-level device. The Wi-Fi certification also discloses that the device runs on Android Oreo, which is a great thing, considering it’s an entry-level device.
Nothing else is mention in this certification but the processor can tell us what to expect from the Blade A530.
The MediaTek MT6739 is the successor to MT6737 and it has Imagination Technologies’ PowerVR GE8100 clocked at up to 570MHz. It supports 18:9 displays with a maximum resolution of HD+ (1440×720), and it has an LTE Cat. 4 modems. The maximum RAM supported is 3GB LPDDR3 RAM. The SoC supports a maximum camera resolution of 13MP, and it can record video up to 1080p resolution at 30 FPS. Finally, it supports eMMC 5.1 and Bluetooth 4.2.
The launch date of the device is unknown. However, the MWC is fast approaching and we may see ZTE unveiling this device at the event.
