ZTE Axon 7 launches in Europe for 450 Euros
The Chinese manufacturer announced its high-end Axon 7 smartphone in late May and it is now finally available in parts of Europe for around 450 Euros. This makes the model cheaper than many major flagship competitors like the Galaxy S7 while being in the same ballpark as the OnePlus 3 or Lenovo ZUK Z2. Core specifications for the Axon 7 include:
- 5.5-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) OLED display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC
- 20 MP rear camera w/ 4K video
- 3250 mAh battery
Other features include a unibody metal chassis, Quick Charge compatibility, and two audio processors for improved playback and recording. The OnePlus 3 may be found for slightly cheaper at under 400 Euros, but it only implements a 1080p panel in comparison.
ZTE is becoming a well-known brand in Europe despite the crowded competition in the region. According to at least one study, ZTE has been making gains in the European market whereas most Chinese competitors are still facing difficulty expanding outside of Asia. The manufacturer offers an even higher-end series with the recent and ongoing Nubia Z11 family of smartphones.
