The V8000, as it is referred to by the FCC, supports the cellular bands used by Cricket Wireless and includes Cricket branding on the hardare. The FCC also confirms that the device includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. According to photos posted by the FCC, the V8000 has an 8-megapixel main camera with flash and a user-facing camera of unknown quality. Other elements of the hardware visible in the images include a microUSB port and 3.5mm headset jack, as well as SRS Audio and MuveMusic logos.

Neither ZTE nor Cricket Wireless has released information regarding this device yet.
