ZTE unveiled the Axon 7 Mini in early September, and finally, the device is up for pre-order through many online retailers. Much like the full-size Axon 7 in terms of design, ZTE is packing premium specs into a very inexpensive $300 package.
The Axon 7 Mini features a 5.2″ Full HD AMOLED display, Snapdragon 617 processor, 16-megapixel iso-cell camera, 8-megapixel front camera, 2,705 mAh non-removable battery, Quick Charge 2.0, 32GB onboard storage, USB Type-C, microSD support, fingerprint reader, unlocked GSM connectivity, and Android “Marshmallow.”
As for the experience you can expect, the device runs a somewhat stock Android OS, meaning no crazy skin you have to learn to use. Additionally, the dual front-facing speakers should sound pretty sweet, with ZTE marketing them with the line, “highest quality audio experience available in smartphones today.”
According to Best Buy’s listing, the phone should begin shipping later this month. Make note, the Gold model is exclusive to Best Buy, while the Silver model can be pre-ordered at any other outlet.
