ZTE Axon 9 will be the spiritual successor to the Axon 7 flagship
As many of you already know, Samsung plans to unveil the Galaxy S9/S9+ next month of MWC 2018. Perhaps ZTE believes an Axon 9 can better compete with Samsung's flagship, rather than an Axon 8.
The information was recently confirmed by ZTE's CEO, Cheng Lixin, at the Axon M official launch in China last week. Aside from announcing that the company's next flagship smartphone will be named Axon 9, ZTE's CEO didn't reveal anything else.
Still, you can expect the Axon 9 to be a true flagship killer since this is ZTE's only chance to compete in the US with more popular brands like Samsung and Apple.
