ZTE has announced that it’s latest flagship phone the ZTE Axon 10 Pro will officially be unveiled on May 6. The phone was first announced during the MWC 2019 earlier this year. The Axon 10 Pro is a 5G capable phone, a first from ZTE’s stable. With the launch date announcement, the company has once reiterated ‘ZTE may be late but will never be absent’.
The Chinese smartphone brand has now officially announced that the Axon 10 Pro will be announced on May 6 in Fuzhou, China. The ZTE Axon 10 Pro is the company’s first Snapdragon 855 powered phone and comes with 5G connectivity. The phone also comes with F2FS file system instead of the legacy EXT4 file format.
The new system developed by Samsung offers a faster reading/writing speed. While the Google Pixel 3 uses the F2FS file system, Samsung surprisingly still uses the old ext4 file storage system for its flagship Galaxy S10.
The ZTE Axon 10 Pro is also the first phone to use Sandisk’s iNAND 8521 and 64-layer 3D NAND stacking technology. This has resulted in double the read and write speed. The continuous write speed can reach up to 500 MB/s compared to 200-250-MB/s reported by AnTuTu for other phones in this category.
