ZTE Blade Spark Launches on AT&T for $99

Adjust Comment Print

Not exactly a head turner, with a somewhat weirdly patterned rear cover, the Blade Spark shines in terms of pre-installed software, camera capabilities and biometrics, considering that insane low price tag.

The ZTE Blade Spark from AT&T ships with Google Android Nougat 7.1.1 so you can have the latest and greatest Android OS right out of the box.

If you're an AT&T customer and in the market for a phone that doesn't have a lot of frills but will get the basics done for under a hundred bucks, the all-new ZTE Blade Spark is another worthy contender in the ultra-affordable smartphone market.

ZTE has also included a 5MP camera on the front of the phone for selfie takers, but with an added bonus. The smartphone is powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. Below the rear camera is a fingerprint reader, and below the front camera is a 5.5-inch 1280×720 display.

13 MP Rear-facing camera with phase detection autofocus (PDAF), 4160 x 3120 resolution and 4x zoom.

Ma Bell's recently rebranded no-contract cell service welcomes an even cheaper device than the $150 Blade X Max today, obviously letting ZTE Blade Spark buyers take advantage of the carrier's "best promotion to date".
