ZTE readying new flagship with 5.5-inch Quad HD display, dual-camera setup

ZTE's Axon series of smartphones is everything that the Chinese company has to offer regarding high-end, premium products. The lineup of Axon smartphones is pretty impressive, which is one of the reasons ZTE managed to remain representative in the US market.

So, it's not surprising that ZTE will continue to pump up new flagships each year, and since there haven't been any major announcements coming from the Chinese company in 2017, we're now turning our attention to the East.

An unannounced ZTE device with codename A2018 has been recently listed at TENAA, the Chinese regulatory commission. Considering the previous ZTE flagship, the Axon 7 was codenamed A2017, so we firmly believe that this could be a sequel.

The only information about the phone that transpired via the TENAA listing is the size of the phone and some display related details. The ZTE A2018 measures 151.7 x 75 x 7.7mm and weighs 170g (battery included).

Also, the smartphone sports a 5.5-inch display with Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution. The pictures at TENAA also reveal the ZTE flagship comes with dual-camera setup and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Unfortunately, we don't know anything about the unveil date of ZTE's next flagship, but since the phone has already been listed at TENAA, it can't be too long until it goes official.

I'd rather have longer battery life than a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution display.

After using a 1440p screen, nope. Screw battery life. Just give me quick charge 3.0 or higher.

Nice to see they ignored our requests to not have painted on capacitive buttons

That was the first thing I looked for. Unbelievable that they decided to leave the one thing in place that everyone complained about

I'm fine with the buttons, they just need to be back-lit this time. No back-lighting is a huge miss. ASUS has made that mistake twice now with the Zenphone 2 & 3. The OnePlus X too.

This is the Axon 7s, not the next flagship, this isn't even leaving China.

I still don't see the benefits of this whole dual camera phenomenon going on. If you use a single high quality sensor, then you'll be able to get pictures that are just as good or better but everything think more means better

They need to make the screen size a little bigger.

Yay, another 5.5" phone. So much excitement.
