The Axon 30 shouldn’t be confused with the Axon 30 Ultra or Pro, both of which are already available. The Ultra has upgrades like a 144Hz refresh rate, a Snapdragon 888 chip, and four rear-facing cameras that handle everything from ultra-wide shots to 5x optical zoom and 60x digital zoom.

The Axon 30 shipped in ZTE’s native Chinese market earlier in August, excluding Hong Kong and Macao. The phone will soon be available across five continents, although there are some notable gaps. Its North American release doesn’t include Mexico for instance, and there’s no mention at all of Australia or New Zealand.
