Next to the high-end Qualcomm SoC, the upcoming Axon might offer 4 GB of memory, a 5.5-inch QHD display, as well as 64 GB of storage space.

ZTE Axon is a family of premium devices that offer high-end specs for mid-range prices, although they are not top-of-the-line handsets. Although ZTE has not announced any new model, it looks like a new Axon is currently being tested and might launch soon. ZTE A2017 is a smartphone that has just been spotted at GFXBench, and we might see it hit the market later this spring.

According to the information revealed by the GFXBench entry, ZTE A2017 is a 5.5-inch device that uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, next to 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. Its screen has a generous resolution of 2,560X1,440 pixels, and its main camera is apparently a 21 MP one. This handset also features a decent front camera with support for 4K video that can take 8 MP shots. The connectivity options include NFC, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, and more.

Since previously released ZTE Axon handsets use model numbers like A2015 and A2016, there is little doubt about the family of devices that will welcome the A2017. However, remains to see when it comes out. We will keep you posted, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
