ZTE’s Entry-Level Blade Q Mini Goes On Sale In U.K. For Just £60


ZTE today launched its latest entry-level smartphone in the United Kingdom, and it is one of the most affordable Jelly Bean-powered handsets at just £60 off-contract. It’s called the Blade Q Mini and it’s exclusive to Virgin Mobile’s pay-as-you-go network, and you can pick one up today at Argos stores across the country.The Blade Q Mini might be an entry-level device, but it’s certainly not the worst one we’ve seen. It’s powered by a 1.3GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of storage, and although it may struggle with the latest high-end games, it should be more than enough for regular day-to-day smartphone tasks.

It also carries a 4-inch display with a 800×480 resolution at 233 pixels-per-inch, has a microSD card slot and a 5-megapixel camera, and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It is capable of running the latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS, but whether ZTE will ever update it remains to be seen.

The Blade Q Mini will also be coming to Sainsbury’s stores in the future, but it’s available now from Argos.
