Axon 9 and Axon 9 Pro to Aid ZTE Comeback

August 29, 2018, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

ZTE was going through a stressful year, but is all set to make a comeback with its new ZTE Axon 9 and Axon 9 Pro. Details of the devices are not out, but there is news that the official announcement of both the phones will happen at an event scheduled for August 30.

But the bad news is that the handsets will not be launched in the US anytime sooner. The company had recently posted an image of the ZTE Axon 9 Pro on its Weibo account.

The image reveals some of the features of the phone. ZTE is adopting the edge- to- edge display and the device Axon 9 Pro features a dual- sensor camera setup.

The image posted online does not show a fingerprint scanner, which means that the phone will either have a side mount or it will house a facial recognition feature for unlocking the phone. The photo of the standard Axon 9 leaked online reveals that the phone sans the notch will have a chin and forehead along with the home button.

As per the report, the Axon 9 will feature a 6-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2,880 x 1,440. The phone which will house a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845processor will have 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. On the other hand, the Axon 9 Pro will carry 6GB of RAM along with an internal storage of either 128GB or 256GB. The phone will be marketed with Android 8.0 Oreo.

ZTE is to launch Axon 9 after two years of the launch of its Axon 7. This means that the company has skipped Axon 8. The reasons why the company chose to skip Axon 8 are unknown. The Axon M, foldable phone by ZTE did not do well in the market.

When it comes to the business terrain, this year was a tough one for ZTE. In 2017 the company was fined $892 million for violating laws prohibiting sales of American tech to Iran and North Korea. Apart from this, the company had to let go of their four senior employees and reprimand other employees. The company was banned from selling its devices in the US. The company was on the brink of shutdown when the ban got lifted. Now the company is allowed to sell its devices in the US again.
