Chinese tech company ZTE is releasing a line of mid-range smartphones known as the Blade V7 and the Blade V7 Lite. Following the brand's luxurious Axon model, these phones are said to be just as luxurious without breaking the bank.
Presented at Mobile World Congress 2016, the Blade V7 and V7 Lite both feature metallic cases and look rather similar to one another. Each phone is also very reminiscent of Apple's iPhone designs. While the V7 mirrors the iPhone 6 or 6s, the V7 Lite shares characteristics with the iPhone 5.
Neither the Blade V7 or the V7 Lite were designed to replace the Axon but each phone serves as a new affordable option in China, Germany, Spain and other international markets.
