A recently released poster by ZTE had hinted that it will be debuting the Axon 9 smartphone through its press event on Aug. 30 at IFA 2018 in Berlin, Germany. The Chinese manufacturer has now confirmed through another poster that it will be debuting Axon 9 Pro soon later this month. It has also revealed that the smartphone will be sporting a design that is very similar to the Apple iPhone X.
Few months ago, ZTE spotted trademarking Axon 9 and Axon 9 Pro monikers. Moreover, earlier rumors had claimed that the Axon 9 would be sporting an 18:9 aspect ratio display. ZTE is yet to confirm on the existence of the Axon 9, but the Axon 9 Pro poster reveals it will be sporting a notched display design and vertical dual cameras like the iPhone X. The back panel of the phone is equipped with a fingerprint scanner. There is a possibility that ZTE may announce Axon 9 as well as Axon 9 Pro at IFA 2018.
There is no information available on the specifications of the Axon 9 Pro, but it is very likely to feature Snapdragon 845 SoC. The handset will be arriving as the successor of the older and well-received Axon 7 smartphone. The below image belongs to the Axon 9 that were released six months ago.
The handset sports a different design as it features a notch-less 18:9 aspect ratio display. The upper bezel of the phone seems to feature dual selfie snapper. A vertical dual camera is placed on its back panel. The back panel of the phone lacks a fingerprint reader. Its rumored specs include 6-inch AMOLED screen with QHD+ resolution, Snapdragon 845 SoC, 64 GB of storage, 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB / 256 GB storage, 20-megapixel main sensor on the rear and 13-megapixel primary sensor on the front.
