ZTE has launched the next generation to the Axon, and the rumor that we heard about a couple of weeks ago regarding the naming of the new Axon is true. The name this new Axon acquired is the Axon 7.
After the we saw the device pass through TENNA certification we knew exactly what the specs for the device were, but just to recap on the front of the device there is an 8 Megapixel selfie cam as well as dual front firing Dolby speakers, and to improve you listening experience there is a 32 bit Hi-Fi DAC. The display is a 2560 x 1440 AMOLED QHD display. If your comparing the Axon 7’s display to the Galaxy S7’s than you should barley see the difference since the Axon 7’s display has been manufactured by Samsung. On the back of the device there is a 20 Megapixel camera that has an aperture of f/1.8, optical image stabilization, electronic image stabilization, phase detection auto focus, and beneath that is a recessed fingerprint scanner. The reasoning for the recessed scanner ZTE said was so users don’t confuse the fingerprint scanner as the camera. On the inside there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage for the US model. There is another model with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, but that will only be available in certain markets. There’s also a micro SD card slot for an addition 128 GB. Also on the inside is a 3,140 mAh non-removable battery which is said to give you up to 360 hours of standby time when the device is on 3G as well as up to 16 hours of talk time on 3G.
The Axon 7 comes with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow right out of the box and on top of Marshmallow is what ZTE is calling MiFavor UI 4.0. It’s isn’t as heavy as TouchWiz, but not as light as Motorola’s current UI.
Pricing has not been revealed yet for either model of the Axon 7, but were expecting it to be cheaper then the other flagships that have already come out. It also has an expected release of July this year. Is the Axon 7 a worthy successor to the original Axon? Does the Axon 7 interest you, and do you plan on getting one?
