The device packs 2GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage which is expandable. Also, the ZTE Zmax Pro features a USB Type-C port and a fingerprint scanner at the back.
In addition, ZTE ZMax Pro boots Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. The smartphone also features a 3.5mm headphone jack which is gradually disappearing from phones and crams a 3,400mAh battery under its hood.
