ZTE launches Axon Pro with 13MP dual cam
ZTE has launched its new high-end device, the Axon Pro, which appears to be specifically designed with the US market in mind. In the camera department the new model comes with a dual-camera setup, similar to the one we've seen in the HTC One (M8). However, at 13MP the ZTE's main camera comes with a considerably higher pixel count than the 4MP HTC. As on the latter the 2MP secondary camera is used to capture depth information that will be used by software to simulate shallow depth-of-field and other effects. It'll be interesting to see if the dual-cam image results will be any better than the HTC's fairly disappointing output.
The camera is accompanied by a dual-LED flash and is capable of recording 4K video. At the front there is an 8MP unit which offers a smile-shutter function. Images and video can be saved on 32GB of internal memory which unfortunately is not expandable. A 5.5-inch Quad-HD screen should make for sharp image viewing and composing.
Android purists will like the Lollipop 5.1 version which is pretty close to stock Android. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC with 2GHz octa-core CPU and 4GB of RAM. Juice is provided by a 3000 mAh battery.
All of the Axon Pro's impressive technology is wrapped up in a metallic body that is available in Gold, Silver, and Blue. You can pre-order the unlocked device now from the ZTE website for $449.98 which includes a TPU case and a pair of JBL earbuds. Pre-order will also be available through a number of other retailers soon.
