ZTE to launch a sequel to the “incredibly successful” Axon 7 soon
ZTE has provided us with a hint to its next flagship smartphone that might arrive in the coming months. It appears that the Chinese company was pretty content with the Axon 7 sales, so the phone is likely to have a sequel very soon.
While ZTE wasn't too specific on the phone's specs or release timeframe, it did say “there will certainly be a follow on the incredibly successful Axon 7.”
When the ZTE Axon 7 debuted in the United States, the smartphone offered many premium features a slightly lower price than other flagships available on the market. The price might have been a major factor that influenced the Axon 7 sales, so, hopefully, the Axon 8 (or whatever its name) will be priced competitively as well.
If I were to guess, I would say ZTE will be announcing an Axon 7 sequel in early 2018. The smartphone might be unveiled at CES 2018 at the beginning of January, or perhaps one month later at MWC 2018.
