ZTE makes some of the most underappreciated smartphones in the industry. And if this new ZTE Axon 9 Pro wouldn’t reach more markets, it might just gonna be one of them.

The ZTE Axon 9 Pro comes with a couple of top-level specs, and a few extras that you can’t find on some other flagships in the market today.


It headlines a large 6.21-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen, with HDR10 support and a dedicated RGB sensor for better white balance tuning. The large screen notch on top houses its 12-megapixel Sony camera with a wide f/1.75 aperture.

On the back, there’s a 12-megapixel + 20-megapixel dual-camera setup. The first sensor has an optical image stabilizer, while the latter sports a 130-degree wide-angle lens. You can also spot the fingerprint scanner here in the back.


Powering the device is the reliable Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, with 6GB of RAM and a fast 128GB UFS 2.1 storage. The ZTE Axon 9 Pro also has a generous 4,000mAh battery to keep it juiced up, which you can easily fill up thanks to Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0 technology.

Despite its powerful hardware, the Axon 9 Pro is part of the Android One platform. Which means that it will come with a clean Android interface, and is first in line when updates become available.
