Under Promise on Price, Over Deliver on Performance
The Blade 10 and Blade 10 Prime feature a 3,200mAh battery. Battery optimization features, Smart Power and Ultra-Low Power-Saving Mode, engage automatically when the battery depletes to 20 percent, extending the remaining battery life up to an additional 24 hours. The MediaTek P60 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and 64GB deliver performance above expectations, meanwhile storage is expandable up to 2TB for all of your multi-media demands.
The Blade 10 and Blade 10 Prime ship with the Android 9 Pie operating system, support swipe gestures, and the ‘Easy Mode’ configuration simplifies app and widget layouts for novice smartphone users.
The eclipse-shaped rear fingerprint sensor with a wide scanning area heightens the convenience factor when unlocking, quick-launching apps, and capturing photos. Up to five fingerprints can be saved and associated with quick-launching apps.
