ZTE Has Launched The Cheapest 4G Phone In India For $80 1

There will never be enough words to describe the pricing war in Indian handset market. Every day you’ve a new phone coming up which tries to disrupt the market and they succeed to some extent as well. But the latest smartphone from ZTE for India is making things a bit more fierce.


The weirdly named, ZTE Blade Qlux 4G, has just become the cheapest 4G phone in India. It costs you just $80 (INR 4,999) to own one. Until it arrived, 4G phones could be acquired for as low as $110 (INR 6,999). Telecos in India are especially aggressive about 4G roll-out and doing every damn thing for it. That is why, Airtel – leading 4G carrier in the country, is throwing in ‘double data’ offer with ZTE’s phone.

Blade Qlux offers satisfactory specifications. It has a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6732M quad-core processor and 1GB RAM. There’s 8GB of ROM as well. The rear camera has 8MP resolution and flash while the front has a 5MP cam. The screen is a tiny 4.5-inch unit. The 2,200 mAh battery powers the show. It will be available exclusively on Amazon India from June 16.
