Photo Announcement. ZTE Blade V40 Smart 5G - a smartphone with familiar looks for Mexico

Oh, those marketing games. In Mexico, a smartphone under the long name ZTE Blade V40 Smart 5G has appeared on sale. And this is the sixth V40 in the ZTE collection. What is funny, the newcomer does not look like one of his namesakes at all. But it is very similar to a pair of twins ZTE Blade A72 5G / ZTE Voyage 30, only those have a weaker main camera. Pathetic 13 MP against as much as 48 MP for our Mexican!

Shortly about the characteristics.

People's favorite chipset is MediaTek Dimensity 700, so AnTuTu will have 300-350 thousand points.

Not enough RAM, only 4 GB. From po�With permanent memory, everything is not bad, its 128 GB. (Memory twins are slightly different. 4+64 GB for Blade A72 5G, 4/6+128 GB for Voyage 30).

The screen is standard, but with a slightly increased - up to 90 Hz - refresh rate. Diagonal 6.52" (103 cm²), resolution 720x1600 (269 ppi).

The battery is obscenely modest, only 4000 mAh. But charging is accelerated - 22.5 W.

The set of cameras is the simplest. 5 MP front, 48+2+2 MP rear.

There is a fingerprint scanner located on the side. But the NFC module is something not to be seen.

Android version surprised me. Only the eleventh.

Cost ZTE Blade V40 Smart 5G useddet 4999 Mexican pesos (₽20900, $276).
