New ZTE Zmax Pro Coming?

ZTE Z986 with 6″ Screen, SD 625 and Android 7.1.1 Seen on GFXBench

The ZTE Zmax Pro is still the best-value phone available. It offers a Snapdragon 617 CPU with a 6-inch HD screen, 32 GBs of internal storage, and a 13MP back camera. Owners on YouTube rave about it.

Now it seems a new version is coming. But it’s going to offer more and less. The CPU is upgraded to a Snapdragon 625. But internal storage is halved to 16GBs. And the back camera sheds 1MP of resolution. The 6-inch HD screen remains unchanged (let’s hope the display provider is unchanged too!). Android 7.1.1 will be inside. Current Zmax Pro owners are still waiting for any Android 7.x at all. NFC is still not included, so don’t even think of this for Daydream VR (the HD-only screen itself would preclude it).

I’ve been wanting the Zmax Pro since it came out (cash availability has prevented acquisition) and have been wondering if ZTE will release a new model. Now it seems they will. The wait continues.
