The ZTE Axon 11 SE 5G has officially launched, and with this device ZTE is looking to make 5G devices more affordable for consumers. So, what sort of package are we getting from ZTE, and does it actually deliver on its promise of affordable 5G?
As expected, the new smartphone comes with the MediaTek Dimensity 800 SoC, an eight-core CPU clocked in at 2.0 GHz. As for storage options, we’ve got 6/8GB of RAM and 64/128/256GB of internal storage. There’s also a microSD card slot for some expandable storage.

It has a 6.53-inch FHD+ IPS display with a hole-punch for the 16MP front camera. On the back we have a 48MP main camera, which is paired with an 8MP secondary camera and two 2MP cameras. We’re assuming the 8MP is an ultrawide lens, and one of the 2MPs is a macro lens.

We’ve also got a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, dual sim capabilites, Bluetooth 5.0, a USB-C port, and there’s even a 3.5mm headphone jack.
So, what’s the pricing like? Well, the ZTE Axon 11 SE 5G starts at 6GB RAM + 128GB storage for 1,998 yuan ($281), goes onto 8GB RAM + 128GB storage for 2,298 yuan ($322) and finally the 8GB RAM + 256GB storage variant for 2,598 yuan ($364). Pre-orders for the device are already open in China.
