ZTE’s Axon 30 Ultra launches this month for $749/€749

Last month ZTE unveiled the Axon 3o Ultra, its first proper flagship in a long while. The latest premium smartphone from the Chinese OEM does away with the gimmicky under-display camera tech of its predecessor and focuses on delivering a top-tier smartphone experience with the tried and tested hardware. The ZTE Axon 30 Ultra has everything you would expect from a 2021 flagship, including a curved AMOLED display, Snapdragon 888 chipset, a quad camera setup consisting of three 64MP shooters, 66W fast charging support, and more. At the time of the launch, the phone was limited to the Chinese market, but ZTE promised it would soon bring the phone to international markets. And today, the company is finally detailing the global pricing and availability.
