ZTE Axon 7 turned out to be a really good premium affordable offering from the Chinese company and was well-received by the users globally. Now, the company is all set to launch its successor as it has managed to get the ban lifted which barred it from doing business with US-based companies.
Earlier, the company had sent out media invites for the IFA 2018 in Berlin from August 31 to 5th September. Now, the company has sent out official invites for the Axon 9 launch event on August 30 and has also shared the invite of the launch through Weibo. The invite has a big ‘9’ written on it, clearly hinting at the Axon 9.
The image also mentions 5G, hinting that the phone could be a 5G-enabled device. The phone is also expected to come with the trendy full-screen display having 18:9 aspect ratio. There’s also dual-camera setup on the back, for improved imaging capabilities.
Based on the previous reports, the Axon 9 is expected to come with a 6-inch QHD+ display and will be powered by Qualcomm‘s flagship Snapdragon 845 processor. It could come in two variants, one with 4GB RAM and another with 6GB RAM.
As for the internal storage, it’ll start with 64GB onboard storage and will max out at 256GB. The device, which is expected to be 5G-enabled, will be running Android Oreo operating system out-of-the-box. Currently, no more details are available regarding the phone.
Apart from the Axon 9, the company is also expected to launch a new Blade series smartphone at the IFA 2018. To know more about the devices getting launched by ZTE at IFA, we’ll have to wait for the official announcement.
