ZTE Axon 9 Pro Specs and Price: Powered By Snapdragon 845 And Android One

ZTE couldn’t resist the notch temptation. The Chinese company has announced its newest flagship phone — the Axon 9 Pro — at IFA 2018, and, of course, it features a notch along with a bezel at the bottom of the display. It also features vertically aligned dual, rear-facing cameras, like the iPhone X.

The ZTE Axon 9 Pro sports a 6.21-inch AMOLED display with resolution of 1080 x 2248 pixels and 18.7:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by the flagship Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Speaking on the camera department, the dual camera setup boasts of 12-MP and 20-MP camera sensors in back while there’s a 20-MP camera sensor in front. All these are powered by a 4,000mAh battery. The Axon 9 Pro runs Android 8.1 Oreo OS.

This device is more of an update to the Axon 7 from 2016 as opposed to last year’s Axon M, which folded in half. It’s unclear if ZTE plans to return to the Axon M, or if that was just a random one-off experiment. This phone won’t be coming to the States, but it’ll cost €649 when it goes on sale in September in Europe.

As an aside, ZTE also announced its plans for 5G devices and how it plans to design the phones to account for antenna placement, additional power consumption, and new hardware. Right now, this doesn’t really mean anything for us other than to expect a 5G device from ZTE in the future, possibly in the second half of 2019, according to the company.
