ZTE Axon 7 Mini Offers Good Looks and Mid-Range Specs
ZTE today showed off the Axon 7 Mini, a smaller version of its flagship handset. Like the original, the Mini features an aluminum unibody chassis in silver or gold with 2.5D glass on the front and a fingerprint sensor on the back. The screen drops from 5.5-inch quad HD to 5.2-inch full HD, and the battery decreases from 3,250mAh to 2,750mAh. Similarly, the Snapdragon 820 processor of the Axon 7 is replaced with a Snapdragon 617 in the Mini, which also drops the RAM to 3 GB and the storage to 32 GB. Last, the Mini has a 16-megapixel main camera where the Axon 7 has a 20-megapixel camera. The Mini carries over the Axon 7's Dolby stereo speakers, Quick Charge battery, USB-C port, dual SIM tray, 8-megapixel selfie camera, and radio configuration. The Axon 7 Mini will be priced at $299 Euros and will go on sale in October. ZTE says the phone will be made available unlocked to U.S. buyers via its web site.
ZTE aimed a shrink-ray at the Axon 7 and created the Axon 7 Mini. This smaller, more hand-friendly phone is nearly as powerful as its larger predecessor.
