All in all, the ZTE Axon Elite has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 128 GB
  • Display: 5.5-inch multitouch with 1,920X1,080 pixels
  • Cameras: 8 MP front, 13 MP + 2 MP on the back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • Operating system: Android 5.0.2 Lollipop with MiFavor 3.2
  • Battery: 3000 mAh with Quick Charge 2.0

In addition to the fingerprint sensor, ZTE Axon Elite also features an eye sensor and voice unlocking. The handset will go on sale in Europe later this month for around 465 USD, with more markets to follow in October. ZTE Axon Elite is now present at IFA and can be found at Hall 25, Stand 105 at the Berlin ExpoCenter City. We will get back to it as soon as we hear news about its price and availability in North America, so stay tuned.

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.
