ZTE Blade A7 Vita, V9 Vita, V9, Axon 9 Pro to Reportedly Launch in India with Competitive Price Tag

All four of the phones are expected to launch in India in within this year, and at pricing that could be aggressive. The handsets do not exactly offer anything new over the competition, but do tick the right boxes to meet the growing Indian market challenge.


Chinese smartphone brand ZTE is back to the game, and will launch four smartphones in India soon, if latest reports are to be believed. The brand was in a tough situation, owing to a US lawsuit, but has wriggled its way out of it now and is ready for a major comeback, apparently. There is, however, no such official announcement on the arrival of these phones in India.

One of these phones, the Axon 9 Pro, is a flagship device and comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. It has a notched display and a decent rear dual camera, but does not exactly offers anything entirely new. Two of the handsets, called Blade A7 Vita and Blade V9 Vita are for the budget segment. The other handset, called Blade V9, will offer two RAM variants in the budget mid-range smartphone segment, competing with a host of dual rear camera phones that are powered by octa-core chipsets. We have many more details, so read on.

ZTE Axon 9 Pro Flagship Device Coming In December

The four new launches will include the ZTE Axon 9 Pro, the brand’s flagship handset which was unveiled at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin earlier this year. The handset comes with a 6.21-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ screen resolution and a rectangular notch that is a bit too wide. Powering the handset is the Qualcomm flagship chipset Snapdragon 845, paired to a 6GB of RAM.

The selfie camera is 20MP and the rear dual camera has a 12MP+20MP setup. The handset gets a glass back, IP68 certification for dust and water resistance, and a large 4000mAh battery with QuickCharge 4.0 support. The ZTE Axon 9 Pro is expected to launch in December at a price above INR 30,000.
