Benchmarks of what looks like to be a new ZTE flagship smartphone have been spotted on Geekbench. ZTE just released the Axon 9 Pro in October last year and it seems like it’s time for a successor, the ZTE Axon 10 Pro. After its recent scandal with the U.S. Government, the Chinese company was MIA for a long time and is now trying to make the best comeback announcing flagship smartphones one after another.
The ZTE Axon 10 Pro appeared on Geekbench today running on a ‘pine‘ platform by Qualcomm which, given the scores, gave away that the SoC here is the Snapdragon 855. The model tested for the benchmark is listed as ‘ZTE A2020 Pro’ with 6 GB of Ram on Android 9 Pie software.
The benchmarks of the ZTE Axon 10 Pro are quite on par with the base scores recorded for the Snapdragon 855 chipset. The smartphone scores 3824 in Single Core and 10762 in Multi Core which look like decent scores for a 2019 flagship. The Axon 10 Pro will stand against Samsung Galaxy S10 in China. ZTE is trying really hard to compete in the Chinese smartphone market lead by Samsung and Huawei and is looking for opportunities to grow its market share and eventually re-earn the reputation.
Given that MWC is just around the corner, we might get an official announcement about the Axon 10 Pro but it seems very unlikely as the Axon 9 Pro is still a thing. Only speculation though, who can stop the Chinese tech company from pulling a Oneplus and releasing two flagship smartphones each year.
