ZTE Axon variant with fingerprint scanner shows up

ZTE Axon variant with fingerprint scanner shows up
Announced last week in the US, the ZTE Axon is a very interesting smartphone, as it offers high-end, flagship-worthy features for just $449 unlocked. The handset can already be pre-ordered in the US, and it will also be released in Canada at some point. But will it be available in other markets? Well, for now there's no official word on this, but it looks like the Axon could be launched in China (ZTE's home country).

The new smartphone was recently approved by China's Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center under the name of ZTE A2015. The device looks like the one announced in the US, and has similar features, with one notable difference: on the back, below its dual 13 MP rear camera, the China-bound Axon has a fingerprint scanner. We're not yet sure if this variant of the handset is China-exclusive, but we'll probably going to find out soon.

The Axon runs Android Lollipop, sports a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. Other features include an 8 MP front-facing camera, 4 GB of RAM, and a 3000 mAh battery. You can take a closer look at the US version of the device by checking out our ZTE Axon hands-on.

LG is pathetic for no fingerprint scanners on their flagship phones.
