The last few weeks have been very busy for ZTE. The company has released several high-end handsets recently, including the 5-inch Grand S, and is preparing to launch an 8-inch Jelly Bean tablet as well as the phablet P945 and the 6.3-inch Nubia Z7. Though it may seem that ZTE is targeting mainly its well-off customers, the company has not forgotten about those who cannot afford expensive devices and is planning to enrich its budget-friendly Blade lineup.

The new member of the family will be called the Blade C V807 and will come with quite decent specs. The phone is already available in China and it costs just 699 CNY, which is about $112 off contract.
The ZTE Blade C also is the first in the lineup to come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. The handset measures 4.88 x 2.51 x 0.43 inches (124 x 64 x 11 mm) and features a 4-inch WVGA display 3 megapixel rear camera, Bluetooth 4.0 and 3G connectivity. The phone is driven by a dual-core 1 GHz MediaTek MTK 6577 processor accompanied by 512 MB of RAM, and offers 4 GB of internal memory. The power is provided by a 1,600 mAh battery.
The specs are typical low- to mid-range stuff, but given the Blade lineup popularity, the C model should score quite a few fans. So far there is no word when the phone will be available on other markets. The pricing in China looks very tempting so let’s keep our fingers crossed for it to remain at a similar level when the handset becomes available in other countries. We will let you know as soon as we have more information.
