The ZTE Axon 10 Pro goes on sale in China
The ZTE Axon 10 Pro has been launched in the OEM's home country (China), and has gone on sale today (May 7, 2019) as projected elsewhere. The phone is a Snapdragon 855-powered flagship with 5G variants, as expected. However, ZTE had a potential ace up its sleeve in the process of unveiling the new device: F2FS, a file-format that could improve storage-related speeds.
Otherwise, the Axon 10 Pro has a 6.47-inch AMOLED, HDR10-ready screen with an FHD resolution, as expected. It also has the anticipated drop-shaped notch, although the bottom bezel that opposes it has been restricted to 1.8mm in depth.
Its rear cameras are 3 in number, with a 48MP module as the main shooter. This is backed up by a 20MP ultra-wide sensor and an 8MP telephoto lens. They give the Axon 10 Pro 3x optical zoom, 10x digital zoom and 5x hybrid zoom.
This complete package in on sale now on the online stores Tmall, JD.com and MyZTE.com. Here, they start at 319 yuan (~$472) for a 6GB RAM/128GB SKU; 3699 yuan (~$547) for a 8GB/256GB and 4199 yuan (~$620) for the 12GB/256GB version. However, these prices apply to variants without the Qualcomm X50 modem only; the anticipated 5G versions of the Axon 10 Pro are yet to be released, as it turns out.
