The gently-curved, borderless, 6.67” OLED display isn’t just exceptionally clear, bright and vivid—it’s also buttery smooth and ultra-responsive, thanks to an industry-leading 144Hz refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate. To put it simply, everything looks (and feels) more amazing on the ZTE Axon 30 Ultra.

Powered by the latest 5G and WiFi 6E network technologies, the Axon 30 Ultra delivers benchmark-setting best data speeds, at home or on the go.
