ZTE's Blade V9 leaked, shows 18:9 display

There's also a glass front and back and it's sleeker than the Blade V8

ZTE is finally joining the 18:9 party with its ZTE Blade V9, as leaked on its Spanish website.

Glass beauty

The highlight? A 5.7in full HD screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a glass display and back, the latter of which seems to be reflective.

All the other trendy bits and bobs are there too: on the rear there’s a fingerprint scanner and a dual-camera set up (a 16MP f/1.8 autofocus sensor alongside a 5MP fixed focus sensor). The front cam is 13MP and there will also be an LED flash at the back. 

It's all powered by the Snapdragon 450 and comes in 2GB, 3GB and 4GB variants paired respectively with 16GB, 32GB and 64GB storage options. A hybrid dual SIM slot for microSD storage, 3.5mm audio jack and microUSB port to charge the 3200mAh battery round out the features.

The phone runs on Android Oreo and is fairly light at 140g.

You can expect it to debut at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next year, in two colour options: gold and black.
