ZTE Axon 7 is no longer in production, but a successor is coming next year

It looks like ZTE will not be manufacturing its Axon 7 high-end smartphone even though the device made its debut on the market one and a half year ago. The good news is the Chinese company hinted to a successor of its “incredibly successful” Axon 7, which could be unveiled as early as January.

ZTE doesn't sell the Axon 7 on its online store any longer and if you visit the phone's page you'll that it's “out of stock.” That made consumers who were still willing to pay to get one to turn to ZTE for more details on when exactly the Axon 7 will be back in stock.

Well, the answer is self-explanatory and doesn't need any comments. ZTE Axon 7 is no longer in production and it's currently tagged with the EOL (end of life) status.

So, if you've been looking to purchase an Axon 7, you'll probably have to look elsewhere since ZTE is not selling anymore. On the bright sight, you could save money and buy the follow-up of the Axon 7 when it goes on sale next year.

I just bought one for 260 because i broke my s7 edge screen.... its a nice device, but the power management is ridiculous. I like the 2 day battery life, but if it cost me missing notifications and disconnecting wireless features like bluetooth audio why bother. No one mentioned it in reviews only people who own the phone, so reviews can only help you so far... other than that you have to manually update android which is a tricky find and so far i'm happy with it.

My Axon 7 did pretty well. Great hardware with "meh" at best software.

I am still using my Axon 7. While I am looking forward to the next generation of the device I have no solid plans to buy, at least as long as this one is still going strong. But if the upgrade bug bites then all bets are off.
