ZTE launches a $99 phone with a fingerprint sensor

ZTE is getting pretty good at bringing good performance and software to affordable smartphones, and today the company's list of budget offerings is expanding with the launch of the Blade Spark.

"ZTE highlighted the "security at your fingertips" as a key feature in a statement announcing the Blade Spark, adding that it can store up to five fingerprints at a time."

Diego Costa, Nemanja Matic given permission to miss Chelsea pre-season tour
There is strong interest in him from Manchester United , while Inter and Juventus are possible options as well. The 22-year old may push out Matic out of Chelsea with the Serbian determined to leave the Blues this summer.

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

ZTE's new Blade Spark runs Android 7.1.1 on a 5-inch 1280x720 display. Namely, 720p screen resolution, Gorilla Glass 3 protection, quad-core Snapdragon 425 processing power, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, microSD support, 4G LTE speeds and Dolby audio enhancements. The rear panel of the handset houses a 13MP camera, LED flash module and fingerprint recognition button, while the top front panel features a 5MP selfie camera, sensors, and an earpiece. On the front, it sports a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter for capturing selfies and making video calls.

Strong storms, heavy rain loom in Thursday forecast
Some showers and storms could linger into Sunday across the Upstate while western NC sees a lower chance of rain or storms. Moisture is a bit deeper across Alabama today, and the air aloft is slightly colder, meaning the air is more unstable.

$99 for such a device is no bargain, as they're better options out there, but there's no doubt that the ZTE branding on this phone offers some value in itself. A 3,140mAh battery keeps the juices flowing.
