ZTE has unveiled the ZTE Axon 30 Ultra Aerospace Edition smartphone alongside the ZTE Voyage 20 Pro. The Axon 30 Ultra Aerospace Edition is the world’s first smartphone to launch with 18 GB of RAM and 1 TB of Internal Storage.
The phone also carries a space theme all around – from its black-ish coloring to the planet-themed packaging. ZTE says that it’s designed to be a tribute to the spirit of space exploration and Chinese space heroes.
The box packs multiple other surprises too. The protective film within shows a space station orbiting the earth in a minimalist style. There’s even a custom case that appears to be made of carbon fiber.
Aside these impressive specifications, other specs are similar to the standard model that launched in April. It is equipped with the Snapdragon 888 processor and has an FHD+ 6.67-inch AMOLED curved screen with support for HDR 10+ and 144Hz refresh rate.
Its rear camera module that packs triple 64MP cameras – another industry first. It doesn’t just end there though as there’s also a fourth 8MP periscope telephoto sensor. Upfront, you get a 16MP sensor for selfies. The phone’s battery is sized at 4600mAh with support for 66W fast charging.
