Virgin Media has landed a deal to sell the ZTE Blade L3 smartphone exclusively in the UK, costing £79.99 on prepay.

The device joins three other smartphones currently being sold by the MVNO: the Kis 3 Blue, Kis 3 Max White and Blade L2.

The Blade L3 is powered by a quad-core 1.3GHz processor and runs the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system.

It has a five-inch touchscreen, eight megapixel auto-focus rear camera, two megapixel front camera, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory.

ZTE Europe Mobile devices general manager Ao Wen said the manufacturer’s mission was to make feature-rich handsets available to everyone, regardless of their budget, with the Blade L3 another step towards this.

Virgin Media director of mobile Annie Brooks said: “We have carried devices for ZTE in the UK for some three years now – from the Blade L2 to the Blade Q Mini and the best-selling prepay smartphone Kis – and continue to see keen demand for its handsets.”
