Remember the ZTE Axon, which was launched in Malaysia last year in September? Well, it appears the Axon is set to receive a successor, and it’s packing quite the upgrade along with a revised design that looks rather sleek.
Based on images of the Axon 2 found on its TENAA certification, the front-facing stereo speakers featured on the first Axon seem to be retained. If we take a look at the back of the device, it appears ZTE has decided to forgo the top and bottom “leather” portions. Chances are, the company is opting for a completely metal body based on the plastic antenna lines.
Curiously, the Axon 2 does not feature a dual-camera setup like its predecessor; this is despite the growing number of smartphones with such a configuration this year. Regardless, the Axon 2’s other specifications are definitely that of a high-end flagship device. These include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor paired with 4GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch QHD OLED display, 64GB of internal storage (expandable with a microSD card up to 128GB), a 20MP rear camera coupled with an 8MP front-facing shooter, as well as a USB Type-C port.
It shouldn’t be too long until the ZTE Axon 2 is officially announced now that it has been certified by TENAA. Whether or not the Axon 2 will be launched here in Malaysia is another story, although the first iteration did eventually make it to our shores some time ago.
