[Update: Official Product Page] ZTE Axon 10s Pro 5G passes through TENAA with Snapdragon 865
OEMs are preparing to ring in the new year with releases centered around the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 and its dual-mode 5G support capabilities. ZTE had already announced that it will contribute to the 5G bandwagon in 2020 with the ZTE Axon 10s Pro 5G, coming in with the Snapdragon 865 of course, along with the Snapdragon X55 modem, WiFi 6, LPPR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage. Now, the device has passed through TENAA, indicating that its launch and availability is just on the horizon.
The ZTE Axon 10s Pro 5G will measure 159.2 × 73.4 × 7.9 mm and weigh 175g. TENAA mentions that the display is a 6.47″ OLED panel with 2340 x 1080 resolution and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The phone will come in 6GB, 8GB, and 12GB RAM variants, as well as storage options ranging from 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. The phone lacks support for any microSD card expandability, nor does it have the 3.5mm headphone jack. The Axon 10s Pro has a 3,900 mAh battery, with fast charging support, though the TENAA page does not usually mention the actual charging prowess.
For the cameras, you get three sensors on the rear: a 48MP main sensor, and a 20MP and 8MP sensor. Since the device is called the Axon 10s, the camera setup appears to be the same as the Axon 10 Pro 5G, which means that the 20MP sensor is the ultrawide camera, while the 8MP is the telephoto camera with optical zoom capabilities of up to 3x. The front camera is a 20MP shooter. The TENAA page also confirms that ZTE Axon 10s Pro 5G will come with Android 10, likely underneath ZTE’s MiFavor 10 UX skin that was announced a while ago.
While ZTE has not announced when exactly the phone will be launched, it has confirmed several of its specifications earlier this month. Now that the device has passed through TENAA, we expect it to be launched within January 2020 itself.
Update: Official Product Page
Ahead of an announcement, ZTE has published the product page for the Axon 10s Pro 5G. As expected, it features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. The display is listed at 6.47-inches with 2340 x 1080 resolution. It’s AMOLED with curved edges and a waterdrop notch.

We should get an announcement soon.
