ZTE Axon 7 pre-orders now live in the US: a lot of phone for under $400
ZTE USA today started taking pre-orders for the Axon 7, a new Android smartphone that was announced back in May. Succeeding the Axon Pro - a device that we liked last year - the ZTE Axon 7 costs less than expected, and you can pre-order one, unlocked, for $399.98. The first 500 customers who place pre-orders will get a free Axon 7 Clear View Folio Case, though we imagine that these are going to evaporate quickly.

Running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow (customized with a ZTE UI), the Axon 7 is a powerful metal-made handset that offers high-end features, starting with the 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED screen, the Snapdragon 820 CPU, and the 4 GB of RAM that you'll find on board. On the back, the smartphone has a fingerprint scanner, and a 20 MP camera with OIS and 4K video recording. Furthermore, the new device comes with an 8 MP front-facing camera, HiFi audio (just like the Axon Pro from 2015), microSD card support, and a 3250 mAh battery with quick charging. For the beginning, you will be able to use the Axon 7 only on AT&T and T-Mobile, with support for Verizon and Sprint possibly coming later this year (the handset supports almost all 3G, CDMA, and LTE bands deployed in the US anyway).

The Axon 7 also has a version with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space, but this one doesn't show up on ZTE USA's website, and we don't know if it's going to be available stateside.

You can pre-order the Axon 7 in Ion Gold (this model should start shipping on July 27), or in Quartz Grey (though this won't ship before August 17) - check out the source link below. Interested?
