ZTE introduced the ZTE Axon 10 Pro 5G at MWC 2019, started selling it in markets across Europe and the Middle East. Now, the company will unveil the handset on its domestic market. The Chinese company opened pre-reservations for the handset today, with a launch scheduled for August 5.
Back in the last year, ZTE was on the same situation that Huawei is. However, the former was banned from sourcing hardware and software from the US since it violated some sanctions against Iran. After a successful agreement with the US government, ZTE is back in action and the ZTE Axon 10 Pro 5G is a true way to reborn from the ashes.
This 5G variant is different than the standard Axon 10 Pro. The handset comes with more RAM and sports a Snapdragon X50 5G modem. Obviously, the 5G capabilities make this a more expensive handset. In China, ZTE will offer the new 5G handset for CNY4,999 ($726/€650), while the standard 4G variant will be sold at CNY3,199 ($465/€415) with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. Interesting enough, the same handset is selling well in Finland for €599 and €899.
The ZTE Axon 10 Pro 5G boasts a 6.47-inch curved AMOLED screen with Full HD+ resolution. The handsets boast an in-display fingerprint scanner plus a waterdrop notch at the top that houses a 20MP selfie snapper. Moving to the back there’s a triple-camera setup with 48 MP main shooter, 8 MP telephoto lens and 20 MP wide-angle camera. A 4,000mAh battery fuels the handset and comes with QuickCharge 4+ support.
The device comes in three RAM/Storage flavors – 6/128 GB, 8/256 GB, and 12/256 GB. For whatever reasons, ZTE will equip the 5G unit with the least impressive. Let’s see how the customers will deal with this fact.
