A smartphone called ZTE Axon 40 Lite has been spotted on sale in Mexico, and it bears a striking resemblance to the ZTE Blade V40 Design, which was released in Malaysia earlier this year, according to recent research.
Despite minor differences in the indicated screen sizes, the two devices appear to be identical. The Axon 40 Lite is powered by the Unisoc T616 chipset, which is not very popular, and is expected to score around 200-250 thousand points on AnTuTu benchmark.
The Axon 40 Lite is currently offered in a single configuration of 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, while the Blade V40 Design is available in two versions of 4GB RAM with 128GB storage and 6GB RAM with 128GB storage, though the former is not readily available for purchase.
The Axon 40 Lite features an IPS screen with a resolution of 1080×2408 (400 ppi) and a diagonal size of either 6.6″ or 6.66″. Notably, there is no increased refresh rate for the display.
The device is equipped with a 4500mAh battery with 22.5W charging support. In terms of cameras, it boasts an 8MP front-facing camera and a rear camera setup of 50MP+2MP+2MP.
The Axon 40 Lite offers Type-C connectivity, dual-band Wi-Fi, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, but lacks NFC and 5G network support.
In Mexico, the ZTE Axon 40 Lite with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage is priced at 3999 pesos (approximately $221), while the ZTE Blade V40 Design with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage is priced at 649 ringgits in Malaysia (an equivalent of $148).
