The Axon 30 Pro is expected to be ZTE’s 2021 flagship with Samsung’s yet to be announced 200MP S5KGND sensor. The big question however is did ZTE manage to improve image quality from the UD camera after the sub-par output of the Axon 20 5G. The Snapdragon 888 is also on the menu according to leaks. We’ll surely get more details next week’s ZTE event so stay tuned.
