ZTE announced the Axon 11 5G smartphone powered by Snapdragon 765G processor, back in March this year. And, now the company has launched its 4G variant as well. ZTE didn’t announce the new variant at any special event nor did it make an announcement via social media. The ZTE Axon 11 LTE variant is officially listed on the site but sleuths over at XDA Developers were quick to notice the new entry on the website.
The new ZTE Axon 11 is powered by MediaTek Helio P70 processor and while the rest of the specifications are the same as those found in the 5G variant, there are a couple of variances here and there. Since it is not the Qualcomm chipset, the LTE variant of the ZTE Axon 11 lacks the Quick Charge 4+ charging tech. Also, the chip won’t support the higher refresh rate.
The official website does list the ZTE Axon 11 but does not show the full list of specifications. But we assume it to be the same AMOLED display, in-display fingerprint sensor, cameras, and battery capacity as well. However, RAM and storage are unknown for now. XDA points out that it is also unknown whether or not the device supports wireless charging.
The new phone is listed with the same AI quad-camera system including a 48MP main camera, an 8MP 120-degree wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth lens. It is likely that the ZTE Axon 11 version comes only in Black colored variant as this is the only listed one. The quiet announcement does not share the pricing and availability details as well.
