After launching the original ZTE ZMAX in 2014, T-Mobile decided to pass on its successor, which is being sold by AT&T’s prepaid GoPhone brand. According to a new report, though, the ZMAX name will be making a return to T-Mobile this year.
The ZTE ZMAX Pro will launch this summer, according to a VentureBeat report, and it’s going to arrive at T-Mobile. The ZTE ZMAX Pro is expected to be the largest ZMAX model yet, boasting a 6-inch 1920×1080 display. To compare, the original ZMAX has a 5.7-inch screen, while the ZMAX 2 has a 5.5-inch display.
Also expected to be included with the ZMAX Pro is an octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. Also of note is that the ZMAX Pro will reportedly come equipped with a fingerprint reader on its backside. Software-wise, we’re told to expect Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
No pricing details for the ZMAX Pro are available, but given its rumored spec list, it should be priced as a mid-range phone. If that’s the case, the ZMAX Pro could be a compelling option for folks looking for a more affordable Android smartphone thanks to features like a 13-megapixel camera, 1920×1080 display, and fingerprint reader. They’ll just have to be cool with that smartphone having a 6-inch screen, too.
