ZTE is launching a new Android smartphone today (yes, today) as part of CES 2017 this week. The ZTE Blade V8 Pro looks to be a promising mid-range device, with one really stand out feature: its dual 13MP rear cameras.
We got a chance to get a bit of hands-on time with the Blade V8 Pro during CES. By far, the most impressive thing about this phone is the two rear cameras. One of the lenses is used to get depth information for your images. Basically, this should allow you to take a photo of your subject and put it in sharp focus, based on a particular aperture. Everything else in the image can have a slightly blurred look in the background, which should give your images a more professional look.
The camera software in the ZTE Blade V8 Pro will also allow you to quickly change where the focus is in the foreground or background in your images. Again, this is a nice feature that is usually reserved for higher end smartphones, so it’s interesting that it’s available on a more affordable device. The front-facing camera on the phone is more conventional with just one 8MP sensor for making selfies.
