ZTE Axon 9 images and specifications leak

Chinese telecom manufacturer ZTE has confirmed the successor device in Axon series, said to be named as ZTE Axon 9. The ZTE Axon 7 was launched back in mid-2016, embedded with top-tier hardware specs onboard. The smartphone has not been upgraded to another device until the company announced the Axon 9 last month. There was no official explanation regarding the skipping of the number “8”. The ZTE Axon 9 smartphone is now popped on a new set of leaks, depicting the complete specifications and design of the smartphone.

ZTE Axon 9 render image shows the smartphone in blue colour, having a dual-camera and 18:9 display design. The smartphone has a mere resemblance towards Huawei’s Mate 9 from the rear. The front panel design is almost bezel-less, and the navigations bar is provided on the bottom bezel.

The smartphone’s camera department is sported with quad-camera technology, like Huawei’s┬álatest devices. The smartphone has dual-camera setup on both the rear and the front panel. The rear panel will be deployed with a 20MP sensor along with the subsidiary lens, while the front-facing camera is set to 13MP and its auxiliary sensor.

There is no clear mention of the smartphone release date. Nevertheless, we can expect the flagship smartphone from ZTE on this MWC or just after that. The ZTE Axon 9 will be priced above USD 500, somewhere in between $550 and $629.


[UPDATE]: As there is no trace of fingerprint scanner module, the smartphone is anticipated to bear a biometric scanner mounted under the display. There might be also a facial recognition feature, as many companies have already started to implement the same.

  1. Since a fingerprint sensor is not mentioned, what do you make of the fingerprint icon on the display between the microphone and camera buttons located right above the capacitive home button (the circle button)..

  2. What is your confidence level that this is the Axon9 and not just some random render of someone’s idea. I’m asking because there are a lot of major changes from what made the Axon7 loved, such as the dual stereo front facing speakers. Thanks for your time

    Full disclosure-I am the user that posted above as Texasmade1, because I couldn’t remember my Word Press credentials, but I finally recovered them.

    • As the companies, especially Chinese, are trying to reduce unwanted room by implementing 18:9 display, we cannot say the stereo speakers would remain the same. Also, the renders, they look much closer to what we are expecting on the next ZTE Flagship. So can’t avoid it as just some senseless random drawing.

    • The DAC Audio is more likely to retain in Axon 9. But I highly doubt it as they relocated the speaker grill. Hopefully, the headphone jack won’t be ditched.
