ZTE launched a smartphone named Blade A3 Prime a few weeks ago and it seems that the Chinese company is now gearing up to launch yet another budget smartphone, dubbed as ZTE Balde A3v — a variant of the Blade A3.
The smartphone has appeared on the Google Play Console carrying model number Z5157V. The listing reveals that the smartphone features an HD screen with a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels, offering around 320PPI pixel density.
Under the hood, the device will come powered by a MediaTek Helio A22 chipset clocked at 2.0GHz. It packs 2GB RAM but the internal storage information is not yet known. The smartphone is powered by the Android 10 operating system out-of-the-box.
While the screen size is not yet known, the leaks specs hints that the display could be of 5-inch — same as the ZTE Blade A3 (2019) but smaller than the Blade A3 Prime which has a 5.45-inch screen.

The ZTE Blade A3v was recently certified by both the FCC and the Bluetooth SIG. So, the smartphone should not be far away from getting launched. Since the Blade A3 Prime costs $99, we expect this one to be priced lower than that.
Just for the sake of comparison, the ZTE Blade A3 Prime comes with a 5.45-inch HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) IPS LCD panel with 295 PPI and 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by MediaTek Helio A22 SoC paired with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage.
The device features an 8MP primary camera with dual-LED flash and a 5MP front camera. It has all the basics such as 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C, dual-band WiFi 5, Bluetooth 4.2, and fingerprint sensor. Running on Android 10, the phone is powered by a 2,660mAh battery.
