ZTE has started to release its latest Blade L2 Android smartphone in Europe with Spain and Greece among the first countries to get their hands on this latest budget offering. Later this year the device will have a wider launch in the global market. The Blade series of devices have sold quite well in some countries in Europe which is probably the reason why ZTE has introduced this new model in Europe.
The ZTE Blade L2 runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and has a 5-inch display with a resolution of 480×854 pixels which is quite low. It uses a quad-core 1.3 GHz MTK processor combined with of 1GB RAM. There’s 4GB of internal storage space but no mention of a microSD slot. Its other features include 3G, dual-SIM support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and a 2,000 mAh battery.
This device uses a 5MP rear camera that comes with an LED flash and a 0.3MP front camera that can be used to make video calls.
According to A O Wen, ZTE’s European general manager of handset operations, “We’ve had huge success with our Blade series to date in Europe, and we’re excited to introduce the latest edition. We’re confident that the ZTE Blade L2 will offer our ever-more discerning customers across Europe a stylish and high performance device at the right price.”
The specs of the ZTE Blade L2 are obviously that of a mid-range budget device. One of its disappointing features is that its 5-inch display only has a resolution of 480×854 pixels which won’t make images look good. If customers don’t mind the resolution then this will be a good device to own.
