ZTE’s latest smartphone, called the Blade A31, has officially launched in Russia. The smartphone runs on Android 11 (Go Edition). The smartphone features a 5.45-inch HD+ IPS display that offers 730 x 1440 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9. The smartphone runs a Unisoc SC9863A octa-core SoC.
The display of the smartphone is encased inside thick bezels on the top and bottom portions of the display. The back of the smartphone features a rectangular-shaped camera module, and there are volume and power buttons on the right side of the smartphone. ZTE Blade A31 runs on a 3000mAh battery. Moreover, the smartphone is offered with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which could be expanded by up to 128GB using a microSD card. As mentioned earlier, the ZTE Blade A31 smartphone is powered by an octa-core Unisoc SC9863A SoC, and the back of the camera features an 8MP primary camera.
Most of the smartphones that have been launched in recent times come with more than a single camera, even the ones that claim to be budget-friendly; however, that does not seem to be the case for this new offering by ZTE. The 8MP main camera supports HDR for better contrast in photos. As for the selfie camera, it is 5MP.
As the smartphone is available, as of now, in Russia only, it is priced at RUB 7490 which is approximately INR 7500, for the 2GB RAM + 32GB storage variant. The smartphone is offered in two color options: Blue and Grey. No news on its global availability yet.
ZTE Blade A31 comes with a 3,000mAh battery and features an intelligent power-saving mode. Connectivity options include a Micro-USB port, NFC, dual-SIM (Nano) slots, GPS, GLONASS, 4G LTE, Bluetooth v4.2, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, and more. The phone measures 140x71x8.9mm and weighs 166 grams.
