ZTE brings its Redbull V5 smartphone to India without 4G for Rs 10999

While we patiently wait for ZTE to launch the Nubia Z5 Max in India, the company has brought over an affordable smartphone called the V5. The new release flaunts a design similar to that of the flagship series and it offers mid-range specs at just Rs 10999.

The ZTE V5 looks familiar because you may know as the Redbull for China and it happens to support 4G networks there, isn’t the cheapest handset in its category. The Redmi 1S is the most affordable option available and it recently went on sale only to get sold out in mere seconds. What makes the smartphone in question more attractive than the competition is that it offers Android 4.4.2 KitKat with the Nubia 2.0 custom UI, and a 13MP Sony lens.

The rear camera has an Exmor RS sensor that’s also found on the gaming-centric Xolo Play 8X-1100 which recently went official for Rs 14499. The ZTE phone is not only attractive on the outside, but on the inside as well. The innards are furnished with a 1.2GHz quad core processor, an entire gigabyte of RAM and 4GB of storage.
