ZTE is continuing its assault on the low end smartphone market with the brand new Blade Vantage.

Over the past year, ZTE has been busy introducing impressive budget phones with solid specs at a great price. The Blade Vantage is its latest offering, upping the ante with its $49.99 price tag—ZTE’s cheapest phone yet.

The specs are solid for a phone this cheap: 5-inch display (854 x 480), Snapdragon 210 processor, 8MP camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with MicroSD expandability and a 2,500mAh battery.

Moving on to the overall design, it’s very much the same story. It won’t win any beauty contests, but again, it’s not meant to. Outlining the back is a textured plastic cover and on the front is Gorilla Glass covering the display.

The main selling feature of the Blade Vantage is that it’ll specifically work with Verizon’s prepaid plans. In the past, ZTE’s phones have been stuck on Sprint or Boost Mobile, but now you can get the Blade Vantage on Verizon’s network. It will also be the cheapest prepaid phone available through Verizon.

The ZTE Blade Vantage is now available through Verizon.
