ZTE Axon 7 mini specs leak: 5.2" display, 32GB of storage, a Snapdragon 617 running the show

ZTE Axon 7 mini specs leak: 5.2
ZTE's latest flagship device, the Axon 7, is already up for pre-orders in the USA, where willing adopters need to shell out $399 for the handset. If that one has ticked all the boxes except for screen size (the Axon 7 boasts a 5.5-inch one), then the fresh new rumors about a ZTE Axon 7 mini could be the answers to your prayers.

Looks like ZTE wants to encompass all ends of the Android market thus it could be prepping a smaller-sized and toned-down variation of the Axon 7.

Its purported specs have leaked and reveal the device might boast a 5.2-inch display at the front, with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels.

That's the main difference between the ZTE Axon 7 mini and the regular Axon 7, though it's definitely not the only one.

The smaller screen ensures for more compact dimensions - 71 mm x 147.5 mm x 7.8 mm, reportedly. The phone might weigh 153 gr.

Below the display, we find an octa-core Snapdragon 617 chipset paired with 3 gigs of RAM, 32GB of native storage with a microSD card slot also on board. Right there at the back, we find a 16MP camera, while the front of the device is home to an 8MP selfie snapper. Finally, there's a 2,705mAh battery at the back that will keep the lights on, with Android 6.0 Marshmallow running the show. 

We don't know anything about the design of that rumored munchkin yet, but for all we know, it might likely reuse the design of the ZTE Axon 7 -- after all, both devices will be part of the same family, and need the looks to go with that.

Will need to see battery life, doesn't sound promising with such a small battery. Will be hard pressed to beat the similar size Xiaomi Mi 5 which lasts over 2 days on one charge with moderate use.

Doesn't sound promising with the 617. Should have used a 650 for the power of a flagship (when using a FHD screen) or 625 if you wanted all the high-end features.

Agreed. The 617 is the most disappointing aspect.

5,2" and still no room for anything more powerful than SD617? That's pathetic. What's the point of this phone when previous Axon mini offers the same parameters?

Should've gone for a 625 or 650. 625 for efficiency and the latest camera and connectivity features, or 650 for more power. This would be awesome otherwise. I would almost hold off on getting the Axon 7 for this...

A cheaper phone with dual front firing speakers. That's a bonus compared to others.

147.5 X mm is not compact... 143.4 x 70.5 of S7 5.1" OR 136.6 x 69.8 of S4 5.0" is compact
