ZTE confirms June 1 as Axon 11 SE’s official launch date

Enrique, 26 May 2020

ZTE’s Axon 11 5G was announced back in March and a lower cost variant of that phone is arriving on June 1, as ZTE confirmed on Weibo. The ZTE Axon 11 SE will officially be announced in China on June 1. Although the company has not yet officially confirmed the specifications of the handset, we’ve already gotten a peek at those thanks to the TENAA listing.

The poster published by ZTE says something along the lines of “Lights, camera, action!” as a nod to the phone’s supposed camera abilities. There will be a livestream to announce the phone on June 1 at 2PM local time.

Based on previous rumors, we expect the ZTE Axon 11 SE 5G to be powered by the 7nm MediaTek Dimensity 800 5G, which yields similar performance to the Snapdragon 765G, though, their cluster arrangements is slightly different.

The Axon 11 SE is aimed at a younger audience, as we can see in the poster above. So it is certainly going to have a lower price point than its Qualcomm-powered counterpart.

According to its TENAA certification, the Axon 11 SE will have a 6.53-inch LCD screen with FHD+ resolution and a punch-hole selfie camera. The phone will be equipped with a triple or quad-camera setup including a 48MP main camera, an 8MP secondary camera – perhaps an ultra wide, and a 2MP sensor that could be (either) a depth sensor and/or macro camera.

There will be either 6GB of 8GB or RAM and 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of onboard memory. The phone will come with Android 10 out of the box with ZTE’s MiFavor UI and powered by a 3,900 mAh battery.

ZTE does not support their phones with security updates after just 2 years. My last update on axon 7 was May 2019. Stay away from ZTE!

The original Axon wasn't too bad. The screen was a bit dim, but that's about it as far as bad things I remember about it.
