  • ZTE's new Blade Spark brings near-stock Nougat and a 'selfie button' to AT&T for $99

The ZTE Blade Spark from AT&T ships with Google Android Nougat 7.1.1 so you can have the latest and greatest Android OS right out of the box. Not exactly a head turner, with a somewhat weirdly patterned rear cover, the Blade Spark shines in terms of pre-installed software, camera capabilities and biometrics, considering that insane low price tag.

The fingerprint reader aside, there's not much to say about the Blade Spark.

Available for only $99.99, the ZTE Blade Spark comes with an embedded fingerprint sensor. The new smartphone features a trio of capacitive navigation buttons and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, located just middle of the device.

On the imaging front, ZTE Blade Spark rocks 13MP rear camera and 5MP camera at the front for clicking selfies.

Other features of the ZTE Blade Spark include Android 7.1.1, 16GB of built-in storage, a microSD slot for adding more storage, 2GB of RAM, and a 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor. On the battery front, the new ZTE Blade Spark comes packed with a decent 3,140mAh Li-ion polymer battery that is rated to deliver up to 17 hours of talk time, up to 53 hours of music playback time and up to 240 hours of standby time.

Further, the device weighs around 173.4 grams, and it measures 6.14 x 3.06 x 0.38 inches.
