ZTE Axon 9 reveals its appearance in the picture. It has strong specifications, an OLED screen, a dual camera at the front and back, and a reader in the display. Will ZTE Axon 9 be the most interesting of the Chinese flagships?
The MWC 2018 fair is painted in very bright colors. However, apart from the premiere of the most-awaited smartphones – Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S and Samsung Galaxy S9 (non-random order), another player appeared on the horizon, which is worth noting. Here is ZTE Axon 9 – a genuine Chinese flagship. Why not Axon 8? Because Galaxy S9 is the simplest answer.
A good smartphone, an even better screen
Welcome to 2018, which seems to say goodbye to smartphones with screens smaller than 5 inches. Thank you, you served well – it's time to retire. Although this information, which will not please everyone, definitely phablets (someone still uses this word?) Will now be on the lips of everyone in the industry. ZTE understands it well, that's why its flagship will be equipped with a 6-inch display. And it is made in OLED technology, of course with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 and high (too high?) 2K + resolution. The Chinese definitely do not intend to save.Before I go to the technical specification, a few words about design. Let me start with the color that I liked especially. So far, I do not understand why producers rarely reach for navy blue colors. At the back we see a vertical, double camera, and at the bottom, a loudspeaker that is unlikely to offer stereo. It is a pity, because it is one of the few weak points of ZTE Axon 9. The predecessor became famous as one of the best music smartphones on the market, so it is a pity that the front speakers will not appear in the new model.
Monster, though not without shortcomings
Well, to boredom. Snapdragon 845, 4 or 6 GB of RAM (this is one of the shortcomings, the top variant of 8 GB would be the most on the spot), 128 or 256 GB of memory for user data. The golden standard of flagships from 2018 – not only those from China. The quad camera is a relatively new fashion in smartphones, but more and more often found. The front has a resolution of 13 megapixels, a rear 20 megapixels. I just hope that the quality does not end with a specification table.But, but have not I forgotten something? No, there's a fingerprint reader. As you can see, he is neither in front nor behind. The application is one – the scanner will be integrated with the display, ie it will appear where it belongs – under the thumb. The more unpleasant option is the lack of a reader at all.
When did the premiere of ZTE Axon 9?
At MWC 2018. This has already been confirmed in principle, so there is no doubt that the ZTE conference should be saved in the calendar. I have already done it – on the top of the smartphone list, to which I should pay attention. There are several reasons. First of all, ZTE is a relatively cheap brand, just like Xiaomi. Despite the fact that it will not look as impressive as the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, it can fight it with price. Speaking of which, it is to cost around 600 dollars, which is much less than 3000 zlotys.
