Earlier this summer, ZTE sealed a billion-dollar deal with the US government, which ended ZTE’s import ban over violating trade sanctions. ZTE is finally unveiling its latest flagship phone, the ZTE Axon 9 Pro. It’s the first phone that the company announced after the ZTE ban was lifted them. It was announced at the IFA 2018 conference in Berlin. However, this phone will not be available in the US but will be launched in selected countries in Europe and Asia.
ZTE Axon 9 Pro has a 6.21 inch 1080 AMOLED display. The display has its own ZTE feature to process a video called “Axon Vision”. This is available exclusively in the Axon 9 Pro. The feature boasts a video’s color contrast and it increases its frame rate to render smoother images. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor. Its battery capacity is of 4,000 mAh which has wireless charging capabilities. It has two cameras on the back. One is of a 12-megapixel sensor with OIS and the other one is of a 20-megapixel sensor for depth information which will help to capture the portrait with the bokeh effect. On the front, there is a selfie camera of 20 megapixels.
This phone was designed keeping in mind the latest trends which the smartphones are now sporting. There is an on-screen notch at the top, so the Axon 9 Pro has a thinner top bezel. The phone does not have any facial recognition system. The phone does not have any headphone jack. Users need to have either a dongle or wireless headphones to listen to music. ZTE has not yet revealed the price of the smartphone officially. However, it is anticipated that the phone would cost about 649 euros.
