ZTE Axon 7 Max is official with 'Naked 3D' display and dual camera

ZTE is one of the few Chinese companies which releases its flagships for the US market, and hopefully the newly-announced Axon 7 Max won't be any different in that regard, as the Axon 7 proved pretty popular here thanks to its stellar price-to-value ratio.

We doubt it, though, as the Axon 7 Max is not stuffed to the gills with top-shelf specs, but rather boasts a 6" 1080p panel, 2.0 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 chipset, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage plus a microSD card, and a 4100 mAh battery. Still not too shabby, but the 6-inch panel is pretty telling that ZTE is aiming this thing towards the Asian market, where big-screen phones sell like hot cakes.

ZTE Axon 7 Max boasts a dual rear camera setup with two 13 MP units (one for depth of field) that take advantage of a laser autofocusing system. That's not the only arrow in its multimedia quiver, though, as it also has a dedicated AK4962 hi-res audio chip, and a "Naked 3D" display layer that lets you watch 3D content without special glasses. 

Sounds like a pretty interesting device, especially at the reasonable $440 price. That's in China, however - if the Axon Max 7 ever makes it on this side of the pond, it is likely to cost higher.

More pleasing than Axon 7 on the front.

weird pricing... Axon7 have much better specs and still cheaper... and that 84% screen-to-body ratio is a great thing, if we never hear Mi Mix, lol....

Axon make some great value devices, but I wish they would focus a little more on the cameras and maybe consider something closer to stock android.
