ZTE Axon 10 Pro arrives in US with $550 price tag, Android 10 pledge

The unlocked Axon 10 Pro rivals much more expensive devices from bigger names

After virtually sitting on the sidelines for much of the last few years, ZTE is back in the US, and in a pretty big way. Its latest effort, the Axon Pro 10, packs quite a punch, especially considering its price.

Much like its Axon 7 from a few years back, the Axon 10 Pro rivals much more expensive devices from bigger names. Whereas most top-tier flagship phones fetch $800 or more, the unlocked ZTE Axon 10 Pro starts at just $550.

Running a nearly stock version of Android 9 Pie, the Axon 10 Pro boasts a 7.47-inch AMOLED display at 2340 x 1080 pixel resolution. With the thinnest of bezels, and a small cutout for the front-facing camera, the screen also has a built-in fingerprint scanner.



The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and comes with 8GB or 12GB memory and 256GB internal storage. Moreover, a microSD expansion card slot allows for up to 2TB of media and files.

A triple rear camera configurations is comprised from a 48-megapixel main lens, a 20-megapixel wide-angle lens and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens. Around front is a 20-megapixel sensor.

The 4,000mAh battery ticked inside offers wireless charging and supports Quick Charge 4.0. Rounding things out are NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type C, and a promise for an Android 10 update in 2019.

Availability

The Axon 10 Pro is available to pre-order in the US through participating retailers like Newegg, B&H Photo Video, as well as directly from ZTE (USA). Shipping is expected to begin on September 6.
