ZTE gets luxe with Axon 7 phoneThe Axon 7 features a 5.5-inch display, a Snapdragon 820 processor and a 20-megapixel camera.
[MUSIC] ZTE announced a follow up to its latest marquis handset, known as the Axon 7. The 5.5" device is the company's best looking phone yet. And it features a premium aesthetic. A unibody design and metallic trimming. The Axon 7 is equipped with pretty cool specs too. Like a Snapdragon 820 processor, a fingerprint sensor, and dual front facing speakers. As for it's software, it runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and has ZTE's custom My Favorite User interface. Right now, our model doesn't have the final version of it's software. But we are told that the official version of the Axon 7 will allow users to switch from My Favorite. To the stock Android UI and vice versa. Now last year's Axon had two rear cameras that let you readjust the focus of your photos after you hit them. The handset this year does the same thing, only it does it with one single 20 megapixel camera. You can also record 4k video and there's a 8 megapixel shooter in the front. [MUSIC] Other features include 64 gigs of internal storage, 4 gigs of ram, and 128 gigs of extendable memory. It also has dual SIM capability and works with carriers in either GSM or CDMA technology. The ZTE Axon 7 will be available later in June for about $450 unlocked. Giving Axon specs as a super competitive price tag that should appeal to budget conscious users looking for a premium device.
