ZTE Z978 overview

  • 1Description

Powerful multi-core performance and enhanced camera optics are combined in the black ZTE Blade V8 Pro Z978 32GB Smartphone. This handset incorporates 3GB of RAM and is powered by the Snapdragon 625 chipset with a 2.0 GHz octa-core processor and Adreno 506 GPU. For storage purposes, this device features a 32GB internal capacity, which can be expanded by up to 128GB by inserting a microSD card into the second SIM card slot.

At the front of the device, a 5.5" 1920 x 1080 Full HD IPS LCD display is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with 2.5D curved edges. For photo capturing and video chatting, this smartphone features an 8MP front camera and dual 13MP rear cameras for variable depth of field. Phase-detection autofocus is also built-in, and the dual LED flash helps you take pictures and videos in low-light environments.

This 4G LTE smartphone has Bluetooth 4.2 with NFC for pairing with other Bluetooth-enabled devices, and 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi for high-speed Internet connectivity. A fingerprint reader on the front of the phone provides convenience and security, letting you unlock your phone with a swipe of your finger. For rich audio performance, an AKM DAC is onboard, as is a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Axon Pro has a 3140mAh battery with QuickCharge 2.0 that can be quickly replenished with Qualcomm QuickCharge 2.0-compatible charger.

Dual Rear Cameras
The Blade V8 Pro features a pair of 13MP cameras on its back, enabling you to capture images with deep depth of field to capture every part of an image or simulate shallow depth of field for limited focus and dramatic bokeh effects.
Dual cameras also permit the Blade V8 Pro to increase its shutter speed, so you can better capture fast-moving people and objects. Adjustable aperture settings let you customize your photos before and after you edit them, and the dual-LED flash has seven levels of brightness.
The rear-facing cameras are capable of 4K UHD video capture, while the 8MP camera at the front of the device records Full HD (1080p) video.
GSM / 4G LTE Wireless Connectivity
This phone is designed to work on select GSM networks and is 4G LTE capable. LTE is an advanced cellular network data protocol capable of data speeds so fast that they compete with wired broadband internet providers. With an LTE connection, this phone should have no problem streaming HD video, downloading apps, uploading photos, or anything else that requires a high-speed data connection. The phone is also backwards compatible with 3G and 2G data for instances when you can't get LTE. In addition to cellular wireless, this phone also features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Note: Not compatible with all cellular networks. Please make sure your provider uses a frequency or band that this phone supports. You can check which bands this phone works with in the Specifications.
North American Variant / US Compatible LTE
The Z978 is a US variant of the Blade V8 Pro. The Z978's LTE radio is tuned to frequencies that are most often used in the United States and North America. It can also be used in other parts of the world; however, LTE access may be limited or unsupported, depending on the network. To ensure this phone will work with your carrier please check to make sure the frequencies your carrier uses are supported by this phone. The full list of compatible carrier frequencies can be found herefasczcxqrczdbyszdccy, the frequencies this phone supports can be found in the product specs.
Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS)
Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) allows you to lower your mobile costs when traveling while staying connected. Once your SIM cards are installed, you will be able to receive phone calls and text messages from either without needing to manually choose which one is active. When you want to make a call or send an SMS message, you can select the correct SIM card. When one SIM card is being used for a phone call, the other will not be active until you hang up. Operator charges may apply.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 6.0 Marshmallow overhauls permissions, allowing you to have finer control over what your applications have access to. It also marks the debut of Now on Tap, a context-sensitive update to Google Now that checks your current screen for keywords and then searches for them automatically. Other performance and security enhancements are included as well.
