ZTE has just made its latest smartphone, the Axon 7, available for preordering by way of its official US website, and at Amazon, Best Buy, B&H, and Newegg, for a price of $400, with shipping to start on July 27th of this year. With the coming of the Axon 7, the $400 smartphone club just got a little more crowded. For the uninitiated, other members of this club include the OnePlus 3, and Alcatel’s Idol 4S, which will become available for preordering in the United States starting July 15th of this year.
Officially announced in May earlier this year, ZTE’s Axon 7 possesses some impressive specifications. The device comes with a 5.5 inch AMOlED display screen with a resolution of 2,560 by 1,440 pixels, and it is encased in a stylish metallic frame reminiscent of other recent high profile releases. This is complemented with a 20 megapixel camera on the rear side (replete with features such as optical image stabilization and an F/1.8 lens for shooting immaculate pictures even in limited light conditions) as well as an 8 megapixel camera on the front side (capable of 4K video shooting at 30 frames per second, and 240 frames per second slow motion at 720 pixels).
With regards to hardware specifications, the ZTE Axon 7 is equipped with a 2.2 GigaHertz Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, supported with 4 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), plus 64 gigabytes of internal storage. This ZTE phablet is also fitted with a fingerprint reader on the rear side.
But perhaps the device’s most compelling attribute is that its high resolution AMOLED panel allows ZTE’s Axon 7 to be compatible with Google’s Daydream mobile virtual reality platform. ZTE itself has revealed that the Axon 7 should be fully Daydream ready by autumn of this year. VR loving Android fans will certainly be looking forward to that.
Compared to its predecessor, how does the Axon 7 fare? The latest device actually has a better look, and there is a big reason for that -- ZTE joined forces with BMW Designworks in coming up with the design for the Axon 7. The results definitely speak for themselves. Also, the upgrade to 64 gigabytes as the default memory configuration is a significant improvement, especially over the 32 gigabytes storage capacity sported by ZTE’s 2015 Axon offering.
Like previous Axon models, the Axon 7 is offered with ZTE’s Passport 2.0 warranty service, which supplies replacements or loaners if buyers damage their handsets within a couple of years of purchase. For more ZTE deals, you can browse phones and plans from ZTE at Wirefly now.
