May 30, 2019: Leading telecom operator, Verizon Wireless, has announced the release of a new software update for the ZTE Blade Vantage. This update is only for those phones that are carrier-locked by Verizon. Notably, this update comes nearly three months after Verizon last pushed an OTA update for the phone.
Just like three months earlier, this new update offers the latest security patch that brings the phone’s Android security level to April 2019, up from the previous February patch. The new update bears software version Z839V1.0.0B24 and can be downloaded directly by tapping on the update notification on your phone.
