In the recent chain of events, ZTE has revealed its new 5G phone including its specs and the release date. The ZTE Axon 10s Pro is the successor to Axon 10 Pro launched in early 2019, and it will be launched on the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2020. Though a lot of things have been confirmed about the device, the main talking point has been the Snapdragon 865 chipset and its 5G support.
There isn’t much to talk about its design as the Axon 10s pro looks identical to its predecessor. With the thickness measuring at 7.9 mm and weight around 175g, it could be one of the thinnest devices to support 5G.
The Axon 10s Pro will be among the first to be powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 865 chipset. As the flagship chipset is bundled with a discrete X55 modem, the all-new Axon 10s Pro will come with 5G support which wasn’t the case with the Axon 10 Pro which had a separate 5G variant. The phone will come with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage to assist the performance of the device.
The phone will be one of the few devices that come with support for both Dual-Mode 5G and Wi-Fi 6. One can control the cellular network mode between 4G and 5G depending upon the network availability.
The phone will run on the latest MiFavor 10 on top of Android 10. The UI comes with AI voice assistant, system-wide dark mode and other cool features that seem to be aimed at the Chinese users. Additionally, it comes with Z–booster 2.0 which promises to boost the performance of the device through better resource handling.
ZTE Axon 10s Pro Price & Availability
ZTE Axon 10s Pro is expected to cost around 3000 Yuan (~$430 or ~NRs. 48,710) upon its release. It will compete against the likes of Mi 10, OnePlus 8 and Samsung S11.
