Along with the Axon 30 Ultra, which is a phone with triple 64 Megapixel sensors on the rear, ZTE also launched the Axon 30 Pro, which is a flagship powered by the Snapdragon 888 SOC and has two 64 Megapixel rear cameras. There are some significant downgrades compared to the Ultra, and that’s the reason it starts at just 2,998 Yuan, compared to 4,698 Yuan in the case of the Ultra. Also, while the Axon 30 Ultra is coming to the US, that won’t be the case with the ZTE Axon 30 Pro.

The Axon 30 Pro is not that boxy in terms of the looks as compared to the Ultra model, and that immediately gives an impression that it isn’t as expensive as the Ultra. There is a flat display instead of a curved one, and the selfie camera is in a hole-punch cutout. The Quad camera setup is there in a rectangular camera module, but while the Axon 30 Ultra has three 64 Megapixel sensors, the ZTE Axon 30 Pro has two.

There is a 6.67-inch OLED with a 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch-sampling rate. For comparison, the Axon 30 Ultra has a 144Hz OLED with a 300Hz touch-sampling rate. Under the hood, there is Snapdragon 888 SOC paired with 6GB or 8GB RAM and 128GB or 256GB storage.

Speaking of the Quad camera setup, there is a primary 64 Megapixel Sony IMX682 sensor with no OIS and another 64 Megapixel shooter for ultrawide shots. The other two sensors include a 5 Megapixel macro and a 2 Megapixel depth sensor.

There is a 4,200mAh battery underneath and the phone supports 55W fast charging.
