ZTE has unveiled the Axon 10s Pro, a new version of its flagship with an updated processor, Wi-Fi standard and connectivity level. It supports dual-mode 5G, thanks to its X55 modem connected to its next-gen premium SoC. The 10s Pro will also pack LPDDR5 RAM and UFS3.0 flash storage.

ZTE has announced a successor to its current flagship smartphone in China. The Axon 10s Pro is slated to run on the Snapdragon 865 chipset, which will be paired with the X55 modem in this device. The OEM asserts that this will allow it to support both standalone and non-standalone (SA and NSA) 5G modes.

The new Axon also supports the latest Wi-Fi (6) standard, which may allow it to transfer data at up to 1.2 gigabits per second (Gbps). It will run the latest version of Android, modified by this OEM's custom skin (MiFavor 10). ZTE has also stated the phone will be graced with state-of-the-art LPDDR5 RAM and UFS3.0 internal memory on its release. This will take place in China in the first quarter of 2020.

Otherwise, the phone appears to have the same external specs as the Axon 10 Pro. Then again, the OEM has neglected to mention which configurations its shiny new RAM and storage will take. However, it has also mentioned that it will reveal a second 5G phone on the 10s Pro's release. This device, like the upcoming Vivo X30 or Realme X50, may be a more affordable mid-ranger as it will apparently cost less than 3000 yuan (~US$429.50) when it goes on sale.
