Announcement. ZTE Libero 5G II for Japan with non-standard protection class

ZTE smartphone announced yesterday in JapanLibero 5G II. As is customary in those parts of the world, the smartphone is protected from dust and moisture. The protection class for the current times is a bit unusual - IP57, which theoretically means complete protection against water, but incomplete protection against dust (“dust can get inside in small amounts, but this should not interfere with the operation of the device”).

By and large, we have before us an insignificantmodification of the ZTE Libero 5G smartphone announced half a year earlier. The latter had a different (but similar in power) chipset - Qualcomm Snapdragon 690. And the fingerprint scanner was located on the back, not on the side.

ZTE Libero 5G

The apparatus is nothing supernatural. Typical middle class or even slightly lower. But with support for 5G networks, as its name suggests.

The chipset is famous and popular.MediaTek Dimensity 700. So you can wait in AnTuTu for three hundred thousand points. They were greedy with memory. Only 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. Support for memory cards, of course, is.

The screen is large, 6.67 ″. The resolution is high - 1080 × 2400 (395 ppi). Nothing is said about the refresh rate of the screen, so, most likely, there is only a standard 60 Hz.

Suddenly a very modest battery, only 3900 mAh. Nothing is said about the charging speed.

With cameras, too, everything is simple. The front camera has a resolution of 8 MP. Behind the trio 16 + 8 + 2 MP - main camera, wide-angle, depth sensor.

LTE frequencies are categorically “not ours”. There is an NFC module, a fingerprint scanner is located on the side. As far as I was able to understand, there is support for both regular Nano-SIM and eSIM.

ZTE Libero 5G II is for Japaneseoperator Y! Mobile. It will obviously not be sold outside the Land of the Rising Sun (at least under the same name). Available from December 2021. There is no information on the cost yet.
