Chinese phone maker ZTE has been selling phones in the United States for years, but the company’s Blade line of handsets haven’t been available in this market… until now.

The company has announced that the ZTE Blade V8 Pro is is now available for pre-order in the US for $230. While the phone isn’t as powerful as the company’s Axon 7 smartphones, it has pretty decent specs for a device in that price range.

The ZTE Blade V8 Pro has a 5.5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.

There’s a microSD card slot with support for up to 128GB of removable storage, a 3,140 mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 support, a USB 2.0 Type-C port, a headphone jack, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and dual SIM support.

ZTE’s phone has a dual-lens rear camera with two 13MP image sensors and support for recording 4K video, and an 8MP front-facing camera. There’s also a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone.
