The device is equipped with a dedicated audio processor from Asahi Kasei Microdevices (AKM), dual front-facing stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos sound (7.1 surround sound) and is marketed as “the highest quality audio experience available in smartphones today.”
In the camera segment, there is a rear facing 16MP camera with PDAF, f/1.9 aperture; and a front facing 8MP camera for selfies and video chats. The phone packs Hybrid Dual SIM slots, USB Type-C port, run Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and is backed by a 2705mAh battery with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge tech.
Available in Iron Gold and Platinum Gray colours, the fingerprint sensor on the original model remains. The ZTE Axon 7 mini will be available in the U.S., Russia, Germany, Spain, Poland, Japan, Australia, India and Saudi Arabia. In markets outside the US, the price tag is pegged at EUR 299 (VAT inclusive).
Commenting in the launch, Adam Zeng, CEO, ZTE said;
“Consumers around the world have gravitated to our AXON 7 device as it offers flagship level specs and experience at a price that is simply unbeatable. By extending the AXON 7 series with today’s launch of the AXON 7 mini we are giving consumers more options in device size, but with the same premium performance they seek in flagship devices.”
