ZTE's first US carrier launch since the export ban is a $99 phone on low-cost carrier 'Visible'

ZTE had a pretty rough 2018 thanks to the US Commerce Department's decision to enforce a suspended export ban against the company. That cut ZTE off from its US-based suppliers, resulting in an almost total shutdown. ZTE agreed to additional corporate changes and paid a new fine to get back in business, but it hasn't launched any new phones on carriers in the US until now. It's first post-shutdown carrier phone isn't exactly a showstopper, but you can get a new ZTE device right now on the Visible.

Japan reportedly planning to boycott Huawei and ZTE equipment for government use

Chinese technology companies have faced numerous difficulties overseas this year owing to a lack of trust, particularly in the US where Huawei's proposed carrier deals with AT&T and Verizon fell through due to political pressure and ZTE was forced to pay huge fines and sack board members to resume trading. US government agencies were then banned from using technology made by either firm, and it looks like Japan may be following suit with similar sanctions.

The ZTE Axon 7 gets Android 8.0 Oreo, with several catches

After a beta program with bizarrely strict requirements for entry earlier this year, an update to Android 8.0 Oreo is now available for the ZTE Axon 7 — with more than one catch. The update isn't being pushed over the air, but rather has to be installed from an SD card, and it'll wipe your device.

Nubia's dual-screen X coming October 31st

ZTE, and its subsidiary Nubia, has a thing for dual-screen phones. After it released the Axon M last year, with two screens that unfolded into a single larger display, the company decided to put one on the front and another on the back. Why is it doing this? We’re not really sure, other than it eliminates the need for a selfie camera. The Nubia Z18S leaked in September, and now we have our first look at specs and confirmation of its October 31st launch date.

ZTE put a screen on the back of the Nubia Z18S, because why the hell not

Just last year, ZTE came out with the Axon M, a phone with two screens that merged to form one giant nearly-square display when it was unfolded. It looks like one awkward dual-screen phone wasn't enough for the company, judging from leaked photos (and video) of the ZTE Nubia Z18S.
