ZTE showcases Axon 10s Pro, confirms SD865 chipset and 5G

The beginning of the year was marked by the arrival of the first 5G phones and one of the pioneers was the Axon 10 Pro 5G. It was introduced at MWC 2019 and is currently selling all over the globe, including the United States.

While the official message did not include Snapdragon 865, the company account later replied in the comments below, confirming the new flagship platform by Qualcomm. It can be coupled with the Snapdragon X55 modem which can provide better bandwidth and higher theoretical download speeds both over 5G and LTE.

Whether the phone will be in a unique orange-red-brown shade or our incredibly advanced translation skills have failed us, we are yet to see when ZTE ultimately announces the phone.
