This 5.5-inch premium handset is powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor and features up to 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage, but the 4 GB/64 GB variant starts below $500 USD.

Last year's ZTE Axon finally got a successor, and it looks like the Axon 7 does not only live to the expectations, it even exceeds them. On the other hand, this premium handset with an all-metal design and a Snapdragon 820 processor under the hood still promises to start below $500 USD.

The most affordable version of the ZTE Axon 7 has the following highlights:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 4 GB RAM; 64 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 128 GB
  • Display: 5.5-inch AMOLED multitouch with 2,560X1,440 pixels
  • Cameras: 8 MP front, 20 MP main camera with f/1.8 and OIS
  • Operating system: Android 6.0 Marshmallow (Android N update promised)
  • Battery: 3250 mAh with QuickCharge 3.0 support

In addition to the above, the ZTE Axon 7 also packs a HiFi 24-bit/96 kHz DAC, and it can shoot 4K video at 30 fps, as well as 240 fps slow motion at 720p.

The 4 GB/64 GB variant is expected to cost only $450 USD while a top-of-the-line version with 6 GB/128 GB and a pressure-sensitive screen similar to Apple's 3D Touch will retail for $639 USD. Unfortunately, ZTE still has to announce the date when this handset is scheduled to hit the market.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
