Recent reports have claimed that ZTE will soon be launching the Axon 40 series of smartphones in China. Today, the company confirmed that it will be holding a press conference to unveil the Axon 40 lineup. It has also confirmed the key specifications of the device.
According to ZTE President, Ni Fei, the company has prepared two “core” surprises for its fans. As can be seen in the screenshot, Fei has used the Axon 40 Ultra to compose the Axon 40 series launch date Weibo post. Hence, there is a possibility that the company may announce the Axon 40 and Axon 40 Ultra smartphones at the May 9 event.
One of the teasers released by the brand confirms that the Axon 40 / 40 Ultra will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. Another image released by the brand showcases the marvellous display of the flagship phone.
As can be seen in the image, the AMOLED panel of the Axon 40 Ultra is equipped with extremely curved edges and an ultra-thin top bezel. The screen offers a pixel density of 400ppi. The screen is devoid of any punch-hole or notch as it is equipped with an under-display camera.
It is speculated that the Axon 40 Ultra could be equipped with a 64-megapixel + 64-megapixel + 64-megapixel triple camera unit. The other details of the smartphone are yet to be confirmed.
A ZTE phone with model number A2023BH was approved by the TENAA authority of China in February. The device was found to be equipped with specs identical to the Nubia Z40 Pro. It is expected to launch as part of the Axon 40 series of smartphones.
