We’re not talking about an obscured or blurred-out photograph in any way, mind you, as today’s official ZTE Axon 9 Pro render reveals pretty much everything we need to know about the handset’s design.
At first glance, we must say this thing looks a tad generic, resembling the vast majority of high-enders out there (and a growing number of mid-rangers too) with a wide screen cutout, generous “chin”, narrow side bezels, vertically-arranged dual rear cameras, and a circular fingerprint scanner also mounted on the back.
