Managing to fall into controversy after controversy, ZTE has held its head above water to unveil another generation of smartphones. This time around, at MWC 2019, the company is taking the wraps off two new phones. There’s the mid-range Blade V10 that isn’t all that exciting, but then there’s the mysterious Axon 10 Pro which will be ZTE’s first 5G smartphone.
I say mysterious because ZTE hasn’t actually unveiled very many details about the phone itself. We know it’ll come with a glass design, 5G connectivity, a teardrop notch, and three cameras on the back. We also know it ships with a Snapdragon 855 processor and Qualcomm’s X50 5G modem. But other than these few details, we don’t exactly have a full story here.
In the same breath, 9to5Google spotted a report which indicated the device comes with a 6.47-inch Full HD+ display, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. Take that for what it’s worth.
Meanwhile, we know plenty about the mid-range, less exciting Blade V10. It comes with a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display with a similar teardrop notch, an octa-core processor, up to 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a rear fingerprint scanner, USB-C, a headphone jack, and dual 16MP and 5MP rear cameras. There’s also a 32GMP camera up front along with Android Pie and a 3,200mAh battery.
In regards to either device, we don’t have pricing information yet. However, we do know the Blade V10 will roll out to in China, Europe, and Latin America beginning in March. We’ll let you know when we have more information to share about the Axon 10 Pro 5G.
