The latest budget phone from ZTE is the Blade A3 Prime. It’s an entry-level smartphone with a $99 price that will be arriving to both of Verizon’s MVNO networks: Yahoo Mobile and Visible. The phone is free on Visible through the network’s SWAP program.
The Blade A3 Prime is equipped with a 5.45-inch 720p screen with 18:9 aspect ratio and powered by the MediaTek Helio A22. There’s 2GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage with support for a microSD card. And here’s something you don’t see anymore: the phone has a removable 2,660 mAh battery.
There’s support for both face unlock and fingerprint authentication thanks to the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. There’s also an 8MP camera on the back and dual LED flash. We’re also glad to see the USB-C charging port has finally trickled down to the entry-level phones here. There’s also a headphone jack.
