ZTE and AliExpress will sell the smartphone for almost $100 USD less than the retail price for a limited time.

ZTE and the Alibaba Group are working together to expand a handful of ZTE devices into new regions. In particular, ZTE smartphones will now be available through AliExpress and the manufacturer has announced the ZTE Axon mini Premium Edition as a tie-in for the joint effort. The smartphone will be available worldwide as a pre-order starting December 10.

To promote the deal, AliExpress will sell the Axon Mini Premium Edition for only $300 USD for the first 24 hours of availability. This is almost $100 less than MSRP, so the sale should attract more than a handful of buyers. AliExpress has also revealed a quantity of just 2000 units for the initial shipment.

ZTE launched the Axon mini earlier this year, but the Premium Edition features a pressure-sensitive touchscreen for more accurate inputs and features. This opens up new possibilities for interaction in much the same way as Force Touch for the iPhone 6S or 6S Plus.

For more information on the specifications of the Axon, see our previous article here and our full review on the higher-end Axon Elite. The Chinese manufacturer recently unveiled the Blade A1 smartphone for less than $90 USD for the budget smartphone market.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
