ZTE has come out with another variant of the Axon 40 Ultra – the Axon 40 Ultra Space Edition.
Although both Axon 40 Ultra and the Ultra Space Edition have the same specifications, there is a major upgrade in the newly launched variant. The Axon 40 Ultra Space Edition comes with more memory than anyone can probably use. It comes with a whopping Up To 18 GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. Furthermore, the already high end original device of the handset has now been upgraded with a space inspired design and ceramic back in the latest variant.
Customers, however, would be able to choose between two memory variants when it comes to ZTE Axon 40 Ultra Space Edition. One variant provides 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage and the other premium model offers 18 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage. This recent unveiling of upgraded memory variants was earlier predicted by many tech bloggers online since the brand has already done something similar with the Axon 30 Ultra last year. Let’s find out more about the Axon 40 Ultra Space Edition specifications and features.
The design of this newly launched variant is slightly different from ZTE’s regular ultra moniker models. Ceramic material has replaced the previous back panel design and it does give the handset a premium feel. The brand has also redesigned the camera bump. In the previous design where the surface was discrete, the camera rims now perfectly blend in the back panel without much noise. It appears ZTE has taken extra care with the ceramic material as it has been moulded using special moulds that provides a different texture to the surface of the panel.
The Axon 40 Ultra Space Edition, similar to the regular Ultra model, has been built with a dedicated security chip. The chip has been developed by the brand itself and as per the claims made by ZTE, the chip has passed all necessary security tests and received the required certifications. The ZTE developed chip has passed national commercial encryption testing. Amongst the major security certifications, the chip has received three privacy and international security certifications.
As for the smartphone specifications and features, the Axon 40 Ultra Space Edition sports mostly the same specifications as its sister model. The handset comes with a 6.8 inch AMOLED 120Hz display and a 16 MP under display camera. The four lens rear camera setup includes three 64 MP primary sensors, one for the wide cam (35mm lens), one for the ultra wide (16mm) and one for the periscope (91mm). Powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, it has a 5000 mAh battery support for optimum performance. The device also has 65W to 80W charging support.
As for the pricing is concerned, the ZTE Axon 40 Ultra Space Edition is currently in the pre-booking phase in the Chinese market. The 12GB/512GB variant will be available for CNY 5,900 (around $825/€795/₹67,000), while the 18GB/1TB variant is priced at CNY 7,700 (around $1,075/€1,035/₹88,000).
