ZTE today announced its latest smartphone under the “Small Fresh” series in China, the new Small Fresh 5. While the Small Fresh 5 does boast a few improvements compared to its predecessor, it is surprisingly a downgrade in a few other areas. The most notable downgrade is in terms of the design. While the Small Fresh 4 features a metal build, the new model uses anodized texture paint and custom metal spraying process to give it a premium appearance.
The Small Fresh 5 features a 5-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 HD resolution and 2.5D curved glass on top. That makes it a downgrade over the Small Fresh 4 both in terms of the display size as well as resolution. Powering the new phone is Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 425 chipset clocked at 1.4 GHz, with the Adreno 308 GPU. In terms of memory, the Small Fresh 5 is a decent upgrade over its predecessor. It comes in two variants – one with 3GB of RAM paired with 16GB of internal memory and the other with 4GB of RAM + 32GB of built-in storage. There is a Hybrid Dual SIM slot for further expansion up to 128GB, provided you use just a single SIM card.
Coming to the cameras, the ZTE Small Fresh 5 features a dual-camera setup at the back and a 5MP selfie camera on the front. The primary camera at the rear is a 13MP unit, coupled with a secondary 2MP unit. Similar to its predecessor, the fingerprint scanner has been placed at the back of the handset. Connectivity features offered by the smartphone include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS with GLONASS, and 4G LTE network support. The battery inside is a relatively small 2500mAh unit, with no support for fast charging. The smartphone runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system out of the box, with the MiFavor UI 4.2 on top.
ZTE has priced the Small Fresh 5 at 999 yuan in China (Rs.9,500 approx) for the 16GB variant and 1399 yuan (Rs.13,200 approx) for the 32GB variant. It will be going on sale July 5th onwards in Elegant Gold, Glacier Blue, Dark Knight Gray, and Green colors.
