Ni Fei, Chairman of ZTE Mobile Devices, has now announced potential customers for the ZTE Axon 40 series via Chinese social news service Sina Weibo with a corresponding preview. At least two new flagships will be presented to us later this month. A first certification shows us strong optical links with the Nubia Z40 Pro, which was officially presented in February.
ZTE Axon 40 series will launch in April
You remember the Nubia Z40 Pro that ZTE officially presented to us at the end of February (see title image). The smartphone put a heavy emphasis on 35mm portrait photography and featured an eye-catching circle around the center lens. A ZTE smartphone registered with TENAA (Telecommunications Equipment Certification Center) on March 31, 2022, with model number A2023H/P, now has the same camera design. At the time, ZTE’s subsidiary Nubia was compared to the legendary Rollei 35 (T/TE/SE) analog camera. The 35mm camera was introduced at Photokina in 1966 as the smallest analog camera. So it fits like a glove that ZTE CEO and President Ni Fei is currently promoting the ZTE Axon 40 series. That series is scheduled to be officially launched in April this month.
The similarities with the Nubia Z40 Pro are clearly recognizable
Parallel to the certification, the tipster “Whylab” also offers us the first technical data, which once again coincides with the Nubia Z40 Pro. Above all, a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels and a frame rate of 144 Hertz soda. There is a 44-megapixel front camera in the center of the screen (punch hole), which is slightly more than that of the Nubia subsidiary. It is questionable whether an under-display camera will be used again this year. TENAA images provide little information.
There are identical values for the rear triple camera and arranged vertically. It also consists, from top to bottom, of a 64 MP main camera, a 50 MP ultra-wide camera with said 35-millimeter equivalent focal length, and an 8 MP periscope camera with 5x lossless zoom and optical image stabilization. image. The fact that the ZTE Axon 40 series is also a periscope camera is now pure assumption. The certification only announces the resolution.
A Geekbench database entry confirms a built-in Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 octa-core processor, likely to be installed in a ZTE Axon 40 Pro. A 3C certification, which is always the final indication of an imminent launch, designates a battery. 4,900mAh. This can be fast charged with up to 80 watts if needed.
I am sure that we will learn much more about the ZTE Axon 40 series in the near future. Follow the sequel.
