Chinese manufacturer ZTE confirmed that soon there will be a new device from the Axon series – the successor to the Axon 7 model, which was named Axon 9 Why did they miss 8? We do not know, but the name of the smartphone is not the most important thing.
In the Chinese service Weibo appeared images of the Axon 9 model, which should become the successor of the previous flagship, that is, the Axon 7 model. The device has a metal body unibody, a screen that occupies most of the front panel, a touch field under the display and thin frames with rounded corners. The photos show that the front camera has two lenses. Behind is also a double camera, and a diode flash. You might also notice that there is no fingerprint scanner in the back, not in front, we can assume that we are dealing with the same solution that is used in the Vivo X20 Plus UD model – that is, the fingerprint scanner was built into the screen.
Speaking about the specifications of the smartphone ZTE Axon 9, it is worth noting that the smartphone received a 6-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of QuadHD + (1440×2880 pixels). It will receive a new flagship processor – Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (4 cores Kryo 280 3.2 GHz / 4 core Kryo 280 2.5 GHz), with 4 GB of RAM in the base version (more powerful version has 6 GB). If we are talking about the built-in memory, then the user will be able to choose one of three options: 64, 128 or 256 GB. The smartphone will run Android version 8.0 Oreo.
This model will also receive all the necessary communication modules, I will list them in the list, which you will see a little bit lower. For the duration of the work the battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh is responsible. I also forgot to mention the cameras, as we know, the main front camera lens has a resolution of 13 megapixels, and the main camera, that is, the back, 20 megapixels.
The premiere of ZTE Axon 9 is due in mid-2018, the exact date is still unknown. The estimated price of the smartphone, which we reported GSMarena, is $ 550 for a weaker version, and $ 630 for a better equipped version. The list of characteristics you will find below.
