It features the Snapdragon 870 processor, a 100MP main camera, and other features.
In addition to the ZTE Axon 40 Ultra, which is a full-flagship device, the company also announced the ZTE Axon 40 Pro, which is also a great flagship handset in its own right. This mobile device is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC, which is a rather common chipset in the market. This processor, which ranges from mid-range to flagship, is quite popular. This device is built on TSMC’s 7nm technology and features a three-cluster architecture with a 1+3+4 configuration. In addition to the Adreno 650 GPU, the CPU has a maximum CPU frequency of 3.2GHz. This CPU achieves a score of over 700,000 points on AnTuTu, indicating that it is quite strong. However, given the fact that the latest flagships have a speed of more than one million, this chip is soon becoming mid-range at best.
In the words of ZTE’s Director Jiang Linxu, this chip represents a new generation of devices that strikes the best balance between performance and battery consumption as well as possible. As the flagship chip of Qualcomm’s 8-series, it contains everything a competent smartphone could possibly need, from the CPU to the GPU to the AI capabilities.
The CPU and the camera on this handset are two of its most compelling selling features. In addition to the SD870, this smartphone includes a main camera with a resolution of 100 megapixels and ultra-high definition. This camera has an aperture of f/1.89, a large-format sensor of 1/1.52-inch size, and pixels with a size of 2.1 microns. It works admirably in terms of low-light imaging and overall clarity. This device also includes a depth-of-field camera that may be used separately.
In addition, the ZTE Axon 40 Pro is equipped with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with a 120-degree field of view. Additionally, it includes a 4cm macro camera as well as an independent depth-of-field camera. The image performance is balanced and comprehensive due to the use of this lens combination. Noteworthy features include a smart antenna, compatibility for high-speed rail mode, the ability to quickly locate a network, and a signal that is quite strong.
THE WORLD’S FIRST 100-MEGAPIXEL MOBILE PHONE FROM ZTE
Larger pixels are not always necessary in the smartphone business since sharper photographs are not always required. The ZTE Axon 40 Pro, on the other hand, not only takes advantage of a large pixel, but it also boasts great software optimization. The ZTE Axon 40 Pro is the company’s first smartphone to include 100 Megapixels.
The ZTE Axon 40 Pro features a classic double-ring design with a “hyperbolic curve” on the side and a center frame that is only 2.3mm thick, making it one of the thinnest smartphones available. It has a body thickness of 8.46mm and weighs 199g despite its thinness. Axon 40 Ultra, its bigger brother, is obviously a bit lighter than this model. Furthermore, users will be able to operate this smartphone with a single hand without feeling any strain. There are three different color options available for this device as well, including magic night black, crystal mist blue, and star orange colors.
Regarding the display, the new phone has a 6.67-inch AMOLED flexible curved screen with a curved bezel. With intelligent adjustability from 60Hz to 144Hz, 100 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 broad color gamut, 10bit color depth, a maximum peak brightness of 1000 nits, and a maximum contrast ratio of 3 million to 1, this display is a great choice.
When it comes to hardware, the ZTE Axon 40 Pro does not let the user down. This smartphone, in addition to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC, includes a big built-in battery that holds 5000mAh and supports 66W rapid charging, dual speakers with DTS sound, and the same X-axis linear motor as the Axon 40 Ultra.
The ZTE Axon 40 Pro is available for purchase at the prices listed below.
- 8GB + 256GB for USD 445
- 12GB + 256GB – for USD 490
- 12GB + 512GB – for USD 565
