The ZTE Blade V8 Pro is one of the most affordable smartphones with a dual-camera system that lets you adjust the depth of photographs for bokeh-style shots.

Priced at $230, the phone features a 5.5 inch full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, and a 3,140 mAh battery.

At the Consumer Electronics Show, ZTE announced the phone was coming to America and started taking pre-orders. It starts shipping starting today.

The ZTE Blade V8 Pro features 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a microSD card slot. It also has a USB 2.0 Type-C port, Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 support for fast charging, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, dual SIM support, and a fingerprint scanner.

There’s an 8MP camera on the front of the phone, and two 13MP cameras on the back.

All told, the smartphone has an unusual mix of premium and mid-range specs, with a price that’s decidedly closer to the mid-range side of things.

Like most of ZTE’s unlocked smartphones, the Blade V8 Pro will support AT&T or T-Mobile, but not Verizon or Sprint.
