ZTE has just released its Blade S6 4G LTE smartphone today. Aimed at the young and young at heart, the Blade S6 – per its name – boasts six key features designed to provide customers from across the board with world-class user experience.
Powering the Blade S6 is the new 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset – Qualcomm’s first octa-core system-on-chip solution – and an Adreno 405 image processor capable of Full-HD H.265 decoding. This makes the Blade S6 the world’s first Android 5.0 Lollipop device to be powered by the Snapdragon 615, and uniquely capable of providing one of the most seamless user experiences currently on the market.
ZTE’s MiFavor 3.0 user interface meanwhile offers numerous customization and personalization options at the finger-tips of the consumer. The Blade S6 also packs equally a punch in the audio department thanks to its Hi-Fi sound capability. The device’s five-inch screen is built using In-Cell technology, which allows better and more vibrant image quality.
Among those key features are the device’s Smart Sense, which includes an intuitive and practical sets of gesture and motion controls, such as with a flick of the wrist that allows users to shine the Blade S6’s flashlight, activate its built-in mirror application, take rapid succession of photographs, play music, and much more.
Packaged in a slender two-millimetre-thin casing, the Blade S6 comes in a silver or pink matte finish.
