ZTE has had a rough year but there is still some time left to make back some of the cash it lost no thanks to fines and months of not being able to work as a result of the US ban.
On Thursday, August 16, one of its official Twitter accounts released a poster announcing that the Chinese corporation will be at this year’s IFA holding in Berlin, Germany. The poster does hint at a 5G related reveal but that may not be the only thing we get to see. As you can see, there is an outline of a phone in the image as well.
Other than the hint in the poster, those who have received ZTE’s invitation said there is a 9 in the letter which may be a teaser for the Axon 9. Therefore, it is believed that the Axon 9 will be announced at the event.
The Axon 9’s existence was confirmed earlier this year by the company’s CEO who said it is the successor to 2016’s Axon 7. Later, alleged photos of the device leaked which revealed it will have a display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and dual rear cameras.
The display is said to be a 6” QHD+ panel and there will be a Snapdragon 845 chipset powering the phone. RAM will be 4GB/6GB and storage will start at 64GB and max out at 256GB. The phone is also expected to come with Android Oreo out of the box.
