ZTE Axon 7 Mini comes with a mini-er priceHeaded your way this fall, the Axon 7 Mini slashes the full-fledged Axon's cost and size.
[SOUND] This is the ZTE Axon 7 Mini but spoiler alert, it's smaller in to prevent spring ZTE Axon 7. But the mini here is an actually that mini, I mean it's still got a 5.2 inch screen for crying out loud. Here's what's the same, a metal body with a non removable battery. A fingerprint sensor on the back, which is now easier for small hands to reach. A pair of speakers with Dolby sound. And an eight mega pixel front facing camera. A duel card slot that you can either use for a second sim or for expandable storage. And Android Marshmallow to start with an update to Android 7.0 nougat coming down the line. Now, here's what's different. There's a 16 megapixel camera instead of a 20 megapixel shooter on the regular ZTE Axon 7. A step down processor and smaller battery, half internal storage, slower charging and all that strap the price in the budget range while offering more than most phones in the same category Category. This is the first time we've seen the phone, so we're just not sure yet have it stacks up and real life test against all those other phones, but we do know that it will sell first in Europe in China before arriving in the US this October.
