ZTE Blade X9

Design and Display

In terms of design, the ZTE Blade X9 looks elegant and attractive with its metal body. It has a dimension of 155.3 x 77.2 x 8.6 millimetres and weighs 160 grams. This is essentially a big phone, but one that should fit nicely into the hand of an adult or older teen.

It crams in a huge 5.5-inch touch display with Full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. You should expect nothing less than awesome viewing on this phablet considering the use of an IPS panel and a very high pixel density of slightly over 400 pixels per inch.


ZTE Blade X9 looks ready to serve up some spectacular images with a powerful 13-megapixel camera on the rear.

The shooter features f/2.2 aperture, autofocus and LED flash while offering Full HD (1080p) video capturing capability. Selfie takers will love the 5-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture as well.

Hardware and Software

As for the internals, the Blade X9 is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor which delivers speeds of up to 1.5 GHz.

The robust CPU is married to 2 GB of RAM and an Adreno 405 graphics solution for high responsiveness, respectable multitasking and smooth gaming.

Onboard storage capacity of 16 GB looks sufficient for the needs of an average user. If you desire to expand storage further, however, the ZTE Blade X9 can take cards with up to 128GB capacity.

It runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system, coated with its maker’s own Nubia 3.0 skin.

Other Features

Juice is supplied to the phablet by a respectable 3,000mAh Li-Ion non-removable battery that should comfortably handle full-day use.

A circular fingerprint scanner can be seen on the rear below the primary camera for added protection. ZTE Blade X9 features dual SIM slots, one of which doubles as the microSD slot.

Users should expect impressive mobile data speeds with support for 4G LTE connectivity. The handset also offers microUSB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with hotspot for connectivity.

ZTE Blade X9 is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. ZTE Blade X9 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N53,500 to N75,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
