ZTE Announces New Axon 7 Mini, Pre-Orders Accepted

zte-axon-7-mini
Earlier this year, ZTE launched the Axon 7; a smartphone with a 5.5-inch display with a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera. Following its release, ZTE has announced its plans to release a smaller version of the Axon 7.

The new model will be called the ZTE Axon 7 Mini and will be equipped with a smaller 5.2-inch AMOLED display panel with 1920x1080 resolution. Compared with its bigger brother, the Axon 7 Mini has a 16-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel camera. The device sports dual speakers in front, giving a crisp and clear sound. And right below the rear camera, there is a fingerprint reader that makes the Axon 7 Mini up to date with the latest technologies.

As announced by ZTE, the Axon 7 Mini is already available for pre-orders for $299.98. It comes in Platinum Gray and Ion Gold colors, with the latter exclusively available on Best Buy for the first 60 days. While the pre-order starts today, an official launch date has not yet been specified. Best Buy, however, says that the device will be released on October 27. Aside from Best Buy, the Axon 7 Mini may be purchased from Amazon, Newegg, B&H Photo Video, and ZTE.

  1. Times have definitely changed since 5.2 inch smartphone screens are now called MINI. I remember the original iPhone was 3.5 inches and the BIG HTC Evo 4G was 4.3 inches.

    1. The Axon mini is still larger than the iphone 7 which only has a 4.7" 750x1334 display

    2. I'm glad for it, and want too-small-to-use phones (3 and 4 inch finger-killers) forever banished to an outer hell.

      Or, as some might say, "throw them in the trash"

  2. Personally, I do not believe ZTE, Huawei, Levono, Alcatel, and other Chinese phones because I worried about backdoors. I would rather choose Samsung or LG for Android smartphones.

    1. Germany's Merkel phone was hacked by the NSA; had nothing to do with the manufacturer. Dig deeper.

    2. Samsung products have a great reputation... oh wait...

    3. And the famous LG bootloops are another great example of a less than stellar product.

    4. I'm worried about Russian hackers setting my Samsung phone on fire by altering the temperature battery overheating controls.

    5. Right along with Axon, the NSA is a Chinese company, that is why we shouldn't trust them.

  3. Smartphones are too large to carry. If a smartphone goes on the market with a 2.5 inch screen and weighs less than 3ozs with a battery that lasts long it would be a large seller. The blackberry 9310 and 9320 that boost mobile and verizon sold was the last "mini" smartphone

    1. I'm waiting for the 6" version of the Axon 7 myself. My eyes don't do well with postage stamp size screens :) .

  4. ZTE Axon 7 MAX coming soon. 5.9" screen, 1080p display, Dual 20-MegaPickel cameras on back, & ?Snapdragon 625 ? (Why do these larger phablets go with mid-range processors? when camera seems premium?) ~ $499 U.S. ZTE will announce more in November.

      Any other recommendations on 6" phablets that are reasonably priced?

  5. My mom said DO NOT BUY CHINESE PHONES. No means no. ZTE no.

    1. Chinese companies are buying up "western" brands, like Motorola and Alcatel, and other brands are probably on the verge of being sold off (Nokia). More and more OEMs are turning to COTS solutions (BlackBerry is now Android), or are looking for alternatives to Google, Microsoft, and Apple operating systems (such as Tizen, COS, etc). Most manufacturing is already done there, and presumably are loading firmware and software for the western market. Bottom line, what is a Chinese Phone, and how could you possibly know that what you have isn't compromised at one of the tens of layers of hardware and software that make up the modern smartphone?

  6. I only bought Apple and Samsung don't mess with any other brand

  7. Would the phones work on Verizon and/or Sprint?
    I noticed that the spec sheet states that the phones have CDMA.
    Since thay are dual sims, does that mean that one can use a Verizon sim and a T-Mobile sim?

    1. With the axon 7 it is possible to get it working on Verizon and T-Mobile. Do a google search for "Axon 7 Verizon" there are some hiccups with it on Verizon because it is not officially supported by Verizon, but people have had success with it.
