ZTE is already linked to a device called the Axon 10s Pro based on the Snapdragon 865 SoC and the 5G X55 modem. Now, it appears the Axon 11 is also on the way. This one is no flagship, however: it is more likely to offer the mid-range 765 (or possibly 765G) chipset, which still gives it next-gen connectivity.

ZTE is one of many smartphone OEMs going all in on the 5G bandwagon this year. Its Axon 10 Pro has been refreshed with updated flagship specs in 2020, which includes the dual-band form of this emerging connectivity standard. In addition, this company's gaming sub-brand Nubia has done the same with its own Red Magic flagship. Now, it reportedly plans to add another device based on Qualcomm's next-gen mid-range silicon to this little list.

This device is apparently called the Axon 11, and is to join contemporaries such as the Redmi K30 5G and Vivo Z6 in that it may run a new Snapdragon 7-series SoC. This would make it 5G by default, while having a potentially more attractive price than a 10s Pro-level phone.

These rumors may be confirmed by a recent Geekbench listing linked to the novel ZTE model number A2021. It is powered by an SoC with attributes that match those of the 765 (or 765G?) and 6GB of RAM. This putative new mid-tier 5G phone may also have Android 10 out of the box. These leaks may be affirmed at the Axon 11's launch, which is now reportedly set for March 23, 2020.

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.
