Trump considering executive order to block all ZTE and Huawei sales in the US

Friday, December 28th, 2018

The latest development in the ongoing trade war between China and the US could see Donald Trump sign an executive order that would block all US businesses from buying equipment made by ZTE and Huawei. The order would invoke a national emergency, thus giving Trump the power to implement the ban.

According to three separate sources, Reuters reports that the US Administration continues to suspect the two tech giants of spying on behalf of the Chinese government, which could lead to the executive order being finalized next month.

Japan reportedly planning to boycott Huawei and ZTE equipment for government use

Friday, December 7th, 2018

Chinese technology companies have faced numerous difficulties overseas this year owing to a lack of trust, particularly in the US where Huawei's proposed carrier deals with AT&T and Verizon fell through due to political pressure and ZTE was forced to pay huge fines and sack board members to resume trading. US government agencies were then banned from using technology made by either firm, and it looks like Japan may be following suit with similar sanctions.

[Deal Alert] ZTE Axon M is available for $250 on eBay (65% off full retail price)

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

It's official, ZTE's weird, borderline experimental dual-screen Axon M is now available at bargain basement prices. You can now find new 64GB AT&T-compatible Axon M handsets for $250 in the US on eBay, which is roughly 65 percent off the original $725 price tag. 

From the very beginning, our own David Ruddock identified that the handset was "more of a concept come to life than commercial product," which made it difficult to justify such an investment.

The ZTE Axon 7 gets Android 8.0 Oreo, with several catches

Monday, October 15th, 2018

After a beta program with bizarrely strict requirements for entry earlier this year, an update to Android 8.0 Oreo is now available for the ZTE Axon 7 — with more than one catch. The update isn't being pushed over the air, but rather has to be installed from an SD card, and it'll wipe your device.

What's more, according to testers on Reddit, the build seems to be the same as the last beta version, which explains why it comes with the Android security patch from July.

Nubia’s dual-screen X coming October 31st

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

ZTE, and its subsidiary Nubia, has a thing for dual-screen phones. After it released the Axon M last year, with two screens that unfolded into a single larger display, the company decided to put one on the front and another on the back. Why is it doing this? We’re not really sure, other than it eliminates the need for a selfie camera. The Nubia Z18S leaked in September, and now we have our first look at specs and confirmation of its October 31st launch date.

The last time we covered LineageOS, the most popular custom ROM in the Android community, Oreo builds for the Nextbit Robin and Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 became available.

ZTE put a screen on the back of the Nubia Z18S, because why the hell not

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018

Just last year, ZTE came out with the Axon M, a phone with two screens that merged to form one giant nearly-square display when it was unfolded. It looks like one awkward dual-screen phone wasn't enough for the company, judging from leaked photos (and video) of the ZTE Nubia Z18S.

Whereas the Axon M aped the Kyocera Echo's foldable concept, the Nubia Z18S follows the standard candybar form factor that every other phone does - just with another screen on the back.

ZTE Axon 9 Pro hands-on: ZTE fought hard to bring us this iPhone clone

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

We will no doubt look back at the spring of 2018 as an era of intense ZTE drama. Following an enforcement action by the US Commerce Department, ZTE was cut off from all its US suppliers. The company partially shut down and put all projects on hold until it could work out a deal with the US government. One of those delayed projects was the Axon 9 Pro, which was finally unveiled at IFA 2018.

ZTE reveals €649 Axon 9 Pro, forgets why people liked the Axon 7

Thursday, August 30th, 2018

ZTE is now back in business, and today at IFA it revealed its latest Axon flagship phone — which won't be coming to the US. With no Axon 8, ZTE has jumped straight up to the Axon 9 (with a superfluous "Pro" suffix). In its short keynote, the company was adamant that it was striving "once again to improve the impressive sound of Axon," and apparently the best way to do that was by removing the Axon 7's high-end analog audio/headphone jack experience.
