ZTE launches its cheapest 5G smartphone yet, the ZTE Axon 11 SE 5G: Mediatek Dimensity 800, 48MP primary shooter, and a 4000 mAh battery at US$280
ZTE just launched its cheapest 5G smartphone, yet: the US$ 280 ZTE Axon 11 SE 5G, powered by the Mediatek Dimensity 800 SoC. Despite the midrange pricing, the Axon 11 SE 5G makes relatively few concessions in terms of specs, apart from the inclusion of the midrange Dimensity 800 chip.
We're looking at a triple rear-camera arrangement with a 48MP primary sensor, complemented by a 16MP selfie camera. The device features a 4000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging. Paired with the midrange Dimensity 800 chipset, this should mean enough juice to get through the entire day without needing to top up.
Entry-level ZTE Axon 11 SE 5G models will feature 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, while the top-tier US$364 model will feature 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
While the phone can be pre-ordered in China right now, it's unclear as to when it will hit international markets like India, where the budget pricing and 5G capability are likely to find a lot of takers.
