BERLIN — This summer, ZTE launched the Axon 7, the company’s new flagship phone — which in ZTE’s case pretty much means affordable but solid.
Now, ahead of the IFA show in Berlin, the company followed up with the ZTE Axon 7 mini, a smaller version of the Axon 7, with an ever lower price but also a significantly weaker set of specs.
ZTE points out the phone’s sound as one of its main strengths; the Axon 7 mini has dual, front-facing stereo speakers with a Dolby Atmos signature, which should mean listening to tunes on it should be a bit more enjoyable than on an average smartphone.
On the design front, the Axon 7 mini is quite similar to the Axon 7, with an all-metal body and 2.5D glass (meaning curved edges).
The ZTE Axon 7 mini will hit Russia, Germany, Spain, Poland, Japan, Australia, India, Saudi Arabia on Sept. 7; it will come to the U.S. at an unspecified, later time. The global price will be 299 euros ($333).
