This is ZTE Blade A72, the immediate successor to the Blade A71 of last year. Some of the interesting upgrades on this model includes bigger and better display, and a notably larger battery. But the phone is still based on Google Android 11 OS, and the same UNISOC SC9863a CPU is used.

Talking about display, you are getting a 6.75-inches screen on the front, featuring 1080p display panel and a 90Hz refresh. The 8-core CPU on the Blade A72 is backed by PowerVR GE8233 GPU, 3GB RAM with either 64/128GB ROM.

Camera options on the Blade A72 includes three lenses on the rear; a 13-megapixel main lens, 2-megapixel macro and a third 2-megapixel depth sensor. A single LED flash is also available on the rear, while a 5-megapixel shooter is used on the front.

Interestingly, the phone is powered by a fairly large 6000mAh battery with 22.5W fast charger. It support dual 4G SIMs, has USB C interface, and backed by Google Android 11 out of the box. The complete specs of ZTE Blade A72 is contained in the tabled below.
