Two new ZTE Blade Max phones and they can work on all the networks

By Jules Wang October 31, 2018, 6:13 pm

With new confidence, ZTE has splashed two new, unlocked Blade-series budget phones into the US market — the bonus factor is that each of them works on a legacy CDMA network.

The Blade Max View and Blade Max 2s could’ve been the same phone. The former is compatible with Verizon spectrum while the latter is suited towards Sprint. Both obviously also have capacity for GSM networks.

The pair feature 1080p 2:1 displays, Snapdragon 435 processors from Qualcomm, rear-facing fingerprint sensors and 4,000mAh batteries which charge via USB-C. They also have 32GB of native storage with a microSD slot.

And then we get to the gradients. The Blade Max View has 3GB of RAM, a rear dual-camera system and more resolute cameras than the Blade Max 2s. However, this phone has Android 7.1.1 Nougat — it will apparently cross over to Oreo in December. The 2s goes with 2GB of RAM, Dolby-enhanced speakers and in-line sound and strikes with Android 8.1 Oreo and has Google-fed OTA updates.


The Blade Max View costs $199.98. The Blade Max 2s costs $179.98. Both are available directly from ZTE in the links below this story.
