ZTE ZMax Pro Smartphone is an Affordable Jumbo

July 19, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

ZTE’s attempt to woo customers with jaw-dropping prices continues, as the Chinese manufacturers have now launched its latest low-cost smartphone, the ZTE Zmax Pro.

Launched as the successor to ZMax 2, which was launched in 2015, ZMax Pro brings in the combination of powerful specs and affordable pricing, which the company has been relying on ever since its entry into the western markets. ZMax Pro will be arriving for prepaid carrier MetroPCS for $99 after an instant rebate from the carrier.

With a 6-inch screen-size, ZMax Pro features a full HD display of 1080×1920 pixel resolution, which is a big deal considering that it’s a sub-$100 device. The device is surrounded by a metallic frame, and the front side is covered with a glass pane.


Inside the device is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 chipset with 2GB RAM. 32 GB is what users will get as default storage, and surprisingly, it can be expanded via external microSD slot, which also doubles up as the slot for second SIM if you are not too fond of having extra space. The camera spec lists a 13 MP camera on its rear side, and a 5MP camera on its front side.

Despite being priced at $99, ZMax Pro features a host of premium features that are usually absent in devices of its price range. It includes a fingerprint scanner, USB Type C input, and also quick-charging capabilities for its 3400 mAh battery. The fingerprint sensors are placed on the rear side, below the camera.

ZMax Pro will be made available on August 1, and the company has begun collecting pre-orders on Monday.  ZTE has said that it has sold over 15 million units in 2015. The company will be hoping to raise the numbers this years with ZMax Pro.
