ZTE launched the Axon 60 Ultra last month and presented it as an iPhone replacement in its home country. Now, the company has unveiled two new offerings and becoming an iPhone-like quite literally! In this article, we look into the new ZTE Axon 60 and Axon 60 Lite including their expected price in Nepal.

ZTE Axon 60 and Axon 60 Lite Overview

Design and Display

As I mentioned earlier, the ZTE Axon 60 and Axon 60 Lite are quite literally iPhone-like. They come with the squircle camera island with three camera cutouts. Meanwhile, the rest of the back panel comes in a glossy monotone finish. The titular phones come in Gold, Purple, and Black colours, while the Lite variant replaces the Black with a Blue option.

While the outlay of the two models appears to be the same, they vary from one another in displays. The ZTE Axon 60 Lite comes with a 6.6-inch HD+ display while the Axon 60 sports a larger 6.72-inch FHD+ screen. Both the phones likely have an LCD panel, the type of which has not been specified. In the meantime, they offer a 90Hz refresh rate and a Dynamic Island knock-off feature dubbed the “ZTE Live Island”.

Performance

The performance on both the ZTE Axon 60 and Axon 60 Lite is driven by UNISOC silicon. The former packs the T616 processor while the latter comes with the T606 chipset. Both these processors come with the same architecture and 12nm lithography. However, the former can reach a higher clock speed of 2.0 GHz while the latter settles in for 1.6 GHz frequency.

Other than that, the ZTE Axon 60 comes with 6GB memory while the Axon 60 Lite has 4GB RAM. In contrast, both the phones have 256GB internal memory and boot on Android 13 out of the box.

Camera and the rest

The ZTE Axon 60 comes with a triple camera setup on the back. This includes a 50MP primary unit, a 2MP macro, and a depth sensor of unspecified resolution. Meanwhile, it houses a 32MP camera on the front. On the other hand, the ZTE Axon 60 Lite also comes with three cameras on the back — 50MP, a 2MP deth sensor, and an AI Camera. Similarly, on the front, this phone comes with an 8MP shooter.
