ZTE Says Axon 9 Flagship to Mark Debut in Berlin This Week
ZTE today said it plans to announce its flagship phone of the year during the IFA trade show taking place in Berlin. ZTE has a press conference scheduled for August 30, which is when the device will be unveiled. ZTE has been quiet since the spring months when the U.S. banned the company from using parts and software from American companies. ZTE was forced to pay a fine and agree to replace many of its executives to appease the U.S. government. It also had to install a U.S.-appointed compliance officer to ensure the company doesn't cross the line again. It didn't resume full operations until July. ZTE did not provide any details about its new flagship phone. Its last major device was the Axon M, sold by AT&T last fall. The Axon 7 flagship debuted in the summer of 2016. The Axon 9 arrives at a time of intense competition between Chinese firms such as Huawei, OnePlus, Oppo, and others.
ZTE has been relatively quiet in the US recently for political reasons, but they're working on their comeback. They have a new flagship phone, and it will come to the US.
