ZTE's next flagship, the Axon 10s Pro, may be revealed in full soon. It has passed through testing by the Wi-Fi Alliance and TENAA, which confirms its premium 5G status. However, besides its updated chipset, it appears to have the same chassis as its predecessor.

ZTE has reportedly cleared some major hurdles to its Axon 10s Pro launch. This phone has already been announced, but not officially revealed in full as yet. It will be powered by the new Snapdragon flagship SoC for 2020, and is rated for dual-mode 5G. Otherwise, it may strike some as very familiar on its actual release.

This new device has gone through the Wi-Fi Alliance's validation process, which shows that it is also has the latest version of the connectivity in question, as expected. It has also passed through the TENAA regulatory authority in China, its initial market. This certification points to a phone with much the same specifications as the pre-existing Axon 10 Pro.

This includes its FHD+ 6.47-inch display, its triple rear camera display and its 4000mAh battery. However, ZTE has stepped up to LPDDR5 for its 6 to 12GB of RAM. In addition, its 128 to 512GB internal storage will be of the UFS3.0 variety. Therefore, it seems this new phone is a comprehensive refresh of the Axon 10 Pro 5G - one which, as ZTE has hinted, will be priced at about US$434 (3000 yuan) at launch.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
