Two months after its official announcement ZTE’s flagship Axon 10 Pro 5G has made its way to Chinese online retailer JD.com, which accepts reservations for it. We were already familiar with the key specs and the device topped AnTuTu's benchmark thanks to its powerful processor and F2FS file system. The phone will also be ZTE's first foray into the world of 5G smartphones.
The Axon 10 Pro features a 6.47-inch FHD+ curved AMOLED screen with a water drop notch for the 20MP selfie cam. The screen also supports HDR 10 and comes with an in display fingerprint reader. Around the back, the device features a triple camera setup with a 48MP f/1.8 main sensor with pixel binding alongside 20MP wide angle and 8MP telephoto sensors.
Inside the phone packs a Snapdragon 855 SoC with the X50 5G modem paired with 6/8/12GB RAM and 128/256GB storage. Another key addition is the F2FS file system for faster file read and write speeds. The phone will run on ZTE’s custom MiFavor 9.0 on top of Android 9.0. The battery is 4,000 mAh and comes with 18W fast charging and it can also be topped wirelessly.
The listing reveals that sales begin on May 7 but does not provide pricing. The phone will be available in 6/128GB, 8/256GB and 12/256GB variants and for now, the only color shown is Blue.
