ZTE is back from the dead kind. And at least for now. The company may be desperate to put the dreadful last months behind and show a tough face. This solution is tested on IFA 2018, showing Axon 9 Pro. Yes, there was no Axon 8 and it's not a Pro-Axon 9. And while the ZTE Axon 9 Pro sounds like another 2018 flagship, it has a feature that makes it a bit more interesting. Unfortunately for American consumers, it does not really matter.
ZTE Axon 9 Pros Basic Specifications are something you've seen before. It is Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. As its predecessor, the successful and popular Axon 7 from 2016, it has an AMOLED display. It's bigger about 6.21 inches, but ironically, less pixel-tight with only 2248 × 1
On the back you get two cameras, 20 megapixels and 12 megapixels to be accurate. The front also has a large 20 megapixel sensor. But it's not the only sensor that shares space in that notch. There is an RGB sensor that is part of Axon 9 Pros defining function: Axon Vision.
Axon Vision is ZTE's marketing period for the smartphone's adaptive display. There are actually two functions lumped in one. The first uses the RGB sensor to measure ambient color temperature and adjust the display settings to compensate. Sounds like Apple TrueTone, so it's not very special. What's special is Axion Vision's "Motion Video Optimization" feature that fills videos with frames to ensure you get even 60 FPS, even if the source video is only 24 or 30 fps.
Calling a gimmick, but it's at least ZTE Axon 9 Pro has something worth talking about. Well, that's also the price tag of 649 EUR ($ 757). And the fact that it does not come to the United States. Either ZTE, like Huawei, takes out its complaints to American consumers, or it does not expect it to touch the nest this soon.
