Three UK and ZTE announce lowest priced 4G Super-Voice handset 

Three UK and ZTE have today announced the availability of the new ZTE Blade V7, the lowest priced 4GSV device on the market, marking the beginning of an exclusive UK partnership between the two companies.  

Built according to ZTE’s ‘premium affordable philosophy,’ the Blade V7 is packed with high performance features including a 13MP rear camera and a double colour flash front camera, whilst running Android 6.0 Marshmallow straight out of the box. It also features a 5.2” Full HD edge-to-edge display with metal body and rounded-edge design, providing a high-end look and feel.

All this comes with an affordable price tag, starting at just £9 per month for 500MB of data with no upfront cost. It can also be purchased for £11 per month with no upfront cost as part of a 24 month contract, inclusive of Three’s Feel at Home service so you can use your phone abroad at no extra cost in 42 destinations.

The Blade V7 is also available to buy outright on Pay As You Go (PAYG) for just £129.99 with Three’s market-leading rates of 3p per minute, 2p per text and 1p per MB of data. In addition, all PAYG top-ups with Three don’t expire until you have used them, no matter how long that might take.

The Blade V7 also comes enabled with Three’s 4G SuperVoice service – an innovative solution that helps improve signal for customers indoors and in rural areas, putting an end to troublesome coverage blackspots.

Sylvia Chind, head of devices at Three, said: “We are pleased to now be able to offer ZTE to our customers. The Blade V7 is our lowest ever 4G Super-Voice enabled phone that will allow more people than ever to benefit from improved indoor and rural coverage.

“The Blade V7 boasts many features of a high-end smartphone at a fraction of the cost so will appeal to those customers looking for a bargain.”

David Holmes, account director operator business at ZTE, said: “ZTE’s partnership with Three will enable consumers to take full advantage of the premium features of ZTE devices without the high-end price tag. We’re looking forward to seeing more UK customers have fun with the Blade V7, from its camera capabilities to sleek design. We’re really excited to build on the great momentum we’ve seen around the ZTE series to date.”
