The ZTE Axon 30 Ultra is a smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, a 6.67 inch, 2400 x 1080 pixel AMOLED display with a 144 Hz refresh rate, and three rear cameras which all have 64MP image sensors as well as a fourth camera with a 5X telephoto zoom lens.
First released in China in April, phone goes up for pre-order globally starting May 27th with general availability beginning June 4th.
Prices start at $749 (or €749/£649) and the phone will be available from the ZTE global website.
With a $749 starting price, the phone isn’t the cheapest device with a Snapdragon 888 processor, but it’s also relatively affordable by 2021 flagship standards.
The phone’s cameras, display, and a few other features also help set it apart, including support for 65 watt fast charging and stereo speakers with DTS: X sound.
One thing to keep in mind for customers in the US though, is that the phone will work with AT&T and T-Mobile’s networks, but not Verizon’s. 5G network support is also limited, so it’s likely that you’ll only be able to make use of that if you’re on T-Mobile.
