Updated ZTE Axon 9 Pro, old new Axon 9 and some confusion

ZTE made a cunning trick with its ears and released the ZTE Axon 9 Pro and ZTE Axon 9 models.

The humor is that ZTE Axon 9 Pro was released back inlast year - it was the first post-sans office of the company, a sign of its return to service after a long break associated with a ban on the supply of components from US companies. ZTE is now offering an updated ZTE Axon 9 Pro and in company with a slightly simpler ZTE Axon 9.

Updated only the amount of memory: ZTE Axon 9 Pro is now available in a version of 8 GB + 256 GB. The price on the Chinese market is 3999 yuan (38,130 rubles). In the 2018 version, the older version was 6 GB + 128 GB.

ZTE Axon 9 - a name not previously featuredat all, now wears the youngest modification, the one with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of flash memory. It is offered in the Chinese market for 2099 yuan (20,000 rubles).

The variation 6 + 128 GB was gone at all.

The beauty of this situation is thatThe Russian market currently has a smartphone under the name ZTE Axon 9 Pro with a price of about 40 thousand rubles (39990 rubles) and a memory capacity corresponding to the current ZTE Axon 9 - that is, 6 GB of operational, 64 GB of internal flash memory.
