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.

That's to pay BMW DesignWorks for the design and Dolby for Atmos sound experience..

That's cheap if you consider the specs this smartphone haves.

yeah right, plus that DAC and force touch which is still rare even among flagships.. (and front facing stereo speaker, AMOLED screen and ISOCELL camera is a nice bonus)

If they put Exyno 8890 and IP 68 this would pretty much be perfect device.

I'm excited for this phone. I'm probably going to sell my Nexus 5 this fall. If the HTC Nexus does not wow me I'll be upgrading to this. Hopefully I can snag it on sale for $400.

They will probably have a launch special. In the meantime, this phones predecessor is available for $199 on Amazon. I'm strongly considering it as an extra device.

Wow. ZTE with the heat. Looks as if a HTC had sex with a Huawei. Not bad. Very appealing features!

ZTE making good use of that NBA deal money. Wow, this phone delivers on many aspects. Very impressive. Hope it's as good in person as it is on paper.

wow I'm amazed by this phone ZTE stepping up its game. Hardware is on point for this price, my only concern is if this gets software updates.

Most of the cool and unique phones are GSM only anyway. That's why I pretend sprint and Verizon don't even exist. No matter how good their plans are.
