After the Axon 7 that so many hearts managed to steal, the Chinese company was not able to repeat the same move and the Axon 9 Pro and Axon 10 Pro were far from reaching the levels of popularity of the model that marked the start of the Axon series. That, however, does not mean that the company has given up.
Just under a year after the latest Axon series model, ZTE now presents the new ZTE Axon 11 5G, the new flagship model of its catalog, with which the company intends to get a piece of the cake of the high-end affordable in 2020 based on cutting-edge specifications, added to a reduced price that starts from 350 euros to change.

Curves take over a design without surprises
Compared to the previous ZTE Axon 10 Pro, the design of this new model hardly introduces relevant changes regarding static lines or construction materials. We meet again with a terminal built in aluminum and glass, whose front part is almost entirely occupied by a 6.47-inch diagonal large screen, based on AMOLED technology, Full HD + resolution and led by a small ?notch? in the form of a drop of water located at the top.
The main novelty in this regard is the inclusion of a pronounced curvature on both sides of the panel, which in a way reminds us of the Huawei P40 Pro.
Thanks to the device screen being OLED, ZTE has been able to embed a fingerprint reader under the panel in the same way that it already did in the previous model of the Axon series. However, the brand claims to have improved so much response speed as precision of the sensor.
5G from the Snapdragon 765G
On this occasion, ZTE has decided not to bet on the most powerful processor in the Qualcomm catalog in order to maintain a low selling price in its latest star model. Instead, the firm opts for the Snapdragon 765G, a slightly cropped version of the Snapdragon 865, but which provides advantages over the most expensive model such as the fact of have an integrated 5G modem. Accompanying the chip we find 6 or 8 GB of RAM and a storage of 128 or 256 GB, expandable by microSD up to 2TB.
The terminal's battery stays in 4,000 mAh capacity, and the fast charging system chosen by ZTE is Qualcomm's own in its version 4.0. Unfortunately, for another year we are still without wireless charging.
From your software, mention that Android 10 is the version that gives it life, personalized, that is, through the MiFavorUI layer in version 10.
Four cameras with 64 megapixel sensor
Like many other brands, ZTE has decided to bet on multiple photographic systems in its new reference model. The rear system consists of four sensors, being the main 64 megapixel resolution with aperture F/1.89, accompanied by an 8-megapixel "ultra-wide" capable of capturing a 120-degree field of view. The other two sensors are the classic ones used by the vast majority of manufacturers from China, and which unfortunately, in most cases, do not add much value to the photographic experience: they are a depth sensor and a ?macro? sensor, in both cases 2 megapixels.
In the small ?notch? at the top of the screen, sits a single ** 20 megapixel camera with aperture F/2.0 intended for selfies and video calls.
ZTE Axon 11 5G price and availability
At the moment, the terminal has been unveiled in China, and ZTE has not shared data on the availability of the terminal in the rest of the planet's regions.
