ZTE reveals US and EU pricing for the Axon 7
Yesterday, ZTE unveiled its newest flagship — the pressure sensitive display-equipped Axon 7, with a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4 GB / 6 GB RAM options, 64 GB / 128 GB storage options, a 20 MP Samsung ISOCELL camera, and front-firing stereo speakers, backed up by a 24-bit/96 Khz DAC. The price of all of this goodness? South of $500, we were told.

Today, we learn that the phone will be sold in three tiers – Basic, Standard, and Premium, split between storage and RAM configurations and the presence of 3D Touch technology. In China, the Basic edition will cost about $441 (¥2,899), the Standard one – $502 (¥3,299), and the Premium makes a leap to $625 (¥4,099), probably being the one with the pressure-sensitive screen.

We've also got the prices for the base models in the US and EU. In American markets, the cheapest Axon 7 will set you back just $449, while for residents of Europe will have to pay €409 for it. The exact release date is still unclear, but ZTE have said that the phone will be available from its own web shops, as well as Amazon, Best Buy, B&H, eBay, and Newegg in the USA. At launch, the AXON 7 will be compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile's networks.

Unfortunately, there's no word on the ZTE VR headset's pricing and availability in Europe. In China, the Gear VR competitor will cost ¥518, which translates to just about $79.
