Limited edition ZTE Axon 7 now available with Force Touch, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage
ZTE this morning has announced a new variant of the ZTE Axon 7. Available as a limited edition, the ZTE Axon 7 (6+128) includes Force Touch, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Despite these new capabilities, the phone is priced at $499.98 from ZTE's U.S. website (ZTEUSA.com).

The remaining specs include a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The Snapdragon 820 SoC powers the model, which means it carries a quad-core 2.15GHz CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. The 20MP rear-facing camera offers OIS, PDAF laser focusing and an aperture of f/1.8. A front-facing selfie snapper weighs in at 8MP with an aperture of f/2.2. The 3250mAh battery keeps the lights on, and can be charged from 0% to 83% in just 30-minutes with Quick Charge 3.0. Under the rear-facing camera on back is where the fingerprint scanner resides. The phone is offered in Ion Gold, and Android 6.0.1 is installed.

Thye ZTE Axon 7 was originally launched last May and ZTE has refreshed the device after 6 months to bring it up to date. Since ZTE is pointing out that the model will be available in limited quantities, we wouldn't procrastinate here. If you are looking for a value priced high-end handset, the ZTE Axon 7 (6+128) has every feature you could want at a very reasonable price. If you already own and love the Axon 7, upgrading to the new variant will give you reasons to love the model more.

"As ZTE continuously receives and listens to consumer feedback, we’re providing an option for those that love the Axon 7 to experience it on an optimized and enhanced level. As the first ZTE device to arrive in the U.S. with Force Touch technology, the Axon 7 lineup continues to showcase ZTE’s innovation in the handset market."-Lixin Cheng, chairman and CEO, of ZTE USA.

Imo, the Axon 7 only needed a better camera and it would've been considered 2016 best Android phone.

Yes, the camera really does let the Axon 7 down.

This is one area they shouldn't be making compromises, maybe next year.

Absolutely agree. I'm getting a 64GB OnePlus 3T tonight once they go live, but had the Axon 7 performed at better in lowlight (daylight is good enough) it would be a no-brainer to buy it over practically everything.

And too bad that sweet silver color didn't come to the US...matter of fact, it's a shame the 3T also ditched the silver (graphite) for that darker grey color. Oh well, I'm putting a case on it.

The silver did make it to the US after all. Best Buy were selling it when I was in the States a month ago.

They should have gone cyanogenmod route for software. Would have bought it then.

All fluff as far as I'm concerned. Put a 4000mah battery in it if you're serious.

Pretty happy with mine. 4GB has been enough ram and I bought a 128GB microsd card so I'm good on storage too. I'll wait until the Axon 8 comes out with the SD835, 8GB ram and 128GB storage.

ZTE should have put more effort into the camera with this upgrade.
Who cares about the extra storage when you can add an SD card.
Extra RAM will have very little effect on performance now, maybe in future if you hang onto it for awhile.

Darn, ZTE totally OnePlus'd us Axon owners. We just got owned by an upgrade on a 6 month old phone. I'm still going to give my Axon 7 a tight hug. I love this phone.

I'm satisfied with my ZTE Axon7 The phone almost perfect. I'm thrilled with the sound, battery life, fast charging, camera... I'm disappointed that this phone limits how close I can zoom in on any photo whether in phone, SD, or cloud storage. It only lets me stretch a pic so far and it's not enough. For example if I wanted to zoom in to isolate a detail the zoom capacity is way less than the iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, LG3-V20... Which I could tap to zoom large as I wanted. Also I miss the built in weather widget in LG's that graphically mimicked the actual weather ie. If raining, looked like water rolling against interior of the display screen, lightening, clouds, sunshine, whatever.
