Chinese phone maker ZTE has confirmed that the company does plan to attend Mobile World Congress later this month, despite earlier reports suggesting the company would skip the show due to the Coronavirus affecting China.

So what will ZTE announce at the show? All signs point to a new phone called the ZTE Axon 10s Pro. While ZTE hasn’t put out a press release or revealed pricing or availability details yet, the company has posted a product page for the upcoming phone on its website.

Most specs are unsurprising for a 2020 flagship phone. The ZTE Axon 10s Pro will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, a 5G modem, and UFS 3.0 storage, for example.

But it also packs LPDDR5 RAM, which could make it one of the first phones to use the new memory technology which supports faster data transfer rates and lower power consumption.

ZTE will offer two memory/storage configurations — 6GB/128GB or 12GB/256GB.

Other features include:

  • Screen: 6.47 inch, FHD+ display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio
  • Biometric login: In-display fingerprint reader + face unlock
  • Front camera: 20MP front camera in a waterdrop-style notch
  • Rear cameras: 48MP + 20MP (125 degree ultra-wide) + 8MP telephoto
  • Battery: 4,000 mAh w/Quick Charge 4+
  • Wireless: 5G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, and GPS
  • Android 10

The smartphone also features stereo speakers and DTRS: X Ultra audio.

While we don’t know how much the new phone will cost yet, ZTE’s flagship phones tend to cost less than flagships from rivals including Samsung, Google, and Apple.

  1. I hope they brought back OIS. It’s really one of the defining features between flagships and wound-be-flagships in my opinion.

    1. Exactly.
      OIS and IP68 are the two features that separate the ~$700 “Luxury/Flagship” phones (eg Samsung S9) from the ~$500 “High-end” phones (eg OnePlus 6).

      It’s extremely unfortunate that we lost User Removable Battery in the process, but at least in the Luxury segment there’s a bit of compensation with the waterproofing. But yeah I personally prefer to have the Battery option, despite losing two phones to moisture damage 🙁

      PS: I’m pretty sure the ZTE Axon 9/10/11 are flagship phones, they do have ingress protection and much better cameras than the Mid-range/High-end phones.
