“The Axon 10 Pro is rumoured to be the company’s first 5G-enabled smartphone”
ZTE’s Axon series devices are amongst the most popular flagship smartphones from the Chinese tech giant. The previous phone in the series, the ZTE Axon 9 Pro, was released in November last year with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. The phone is barely six months old, and the company has already started working on the handset’s successor, which is expected to arrive as the ZTE Axon 10 Pro.
Ahead of the unveiling, the upcoming ZTE Axon 10 Pro was recently spotted on the benchmarking website Geekbench under the model number A2020 Pro. Now, the same device has been certified in Russia by the Eurasian Economic Union, which clearly states that the ZTE A2020 Pro will arrive in the market as the ZTE Axon 10 Pro. The certification indicates that the phone could be unveiled and heading to the European markets soon. Sadly, the listing hasn’t revealed anything about the specifications of the device.
According to the Geekbench listing, the ZTE Axon 10 Pro will be among the first range of smartphones to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. On the benchmarks, the phone had a single-core score of 3,824, while its multi-core score was mentioned to be 10,762. Notably, the upcoming Galaxy S10 Plus with Snapdragon 855 SoC appeared on Geekbench with a single-core and multi-core score of 3,413 and 10,256 respectively. So it’s likely that the ZTE Axon 10 Pro will perform better than the Galaxy S0 Plus.
As of now, it is not clear if ZTE will be unveiling the Axon 10 Pro at the upcoming MWC 2019 in Barcelona. However, the company recently announced that it will be introducing its first 5G smartphone in the first half of 2019. So it’s very likely that the Axon 10 Pro could be that device.
