The ZTE Axon 9 was indeed a well-received smartphone offered flagship specifications at a mid-range price. But now, it’s almost 2 years old and many have been wondering when a successor will be landed. This year, ZTE finally announced that a new much-anticipated flagship smartphone is ready to land named ZTE Axon 9 in Australia and other parts of the world. We now have a fresh set of leaked specs.

Perhaps you’re wondering why ZTE is choosing to release Axon 9 rather than Axon 8. Well, you might have asked the same question when Samsung decided to jump to Note 7 from Galaxy Note 5 or when OnePlus jumped from OnePlus 3 to OnePlus 5. We’re hopeful that Axon 9 will follow in the Axon 7’s footprints and things are already starting to look that way.

This time around, ZTE has been vague with ZTE Axon 9 release date in Australia. ZTE has only stated that Axon 9 will be released worldwide later this year. What is the exact release date, it’s something we’re short on words on.

As for pricing, rumours suggest ZTE Axon 9 Price in Australia will be similar to its predecessor and be offered at a midrange price point. We think ZTE Axon 9 should be priced somewhere between AU$790 to AU$900. It would once again directly compete against OnePlus 6.
