ZTE Axon 7 is finally coming to the US of A.
Americans can pre-order on Wednesday July 13th 2016 (Vlad, 2016, July 13) from ZTE’s own US online store or Amazon. Its costs US$399.98 and is set to ship by July 27 2016 for Americans eager to get their hands on this smartphone.
- United Kingdom
Americans, like their European cousins, will have the choice of the following colours:
- Ion Gold
- Quartz Gray
Good to note here that the Quartz Gray will increase the shipping time to August 17, but trust me, it’s worth the wait. So what kind of specs does the US$399.98 ZTE Axon 7 have that’s so appealing?
ZTE Axon 7 – Nature Photography Camera with High-Quality Selfies
The Axon 7, which runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, sports a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED touchscreen (Victor, 2016, May 26) with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels (538 ppi) that comes with a 2.5D glass and Gorilla Glass 4 finish.
Weighing in at 185 grams and measuring 151.8 x 75 x 8.7 mm, it’s powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset that’s supported by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage.
Nothing impressive, right?
The 20 Megapixel Rear-facing Camera is a great camera indeed. It has an f/1.8 main shooter with a Samsung Isocell sensor and has a sapphire lens. It also has features such as OIS, EIS and PDAF with a close loop VCM for better auto focus.
Capable of capturing video at up to 4K at 30fps, this camera is a lens attachment and tripod away (Deer, 2015, August 2) can be used for nature photography. But it’s the 8 Megapixel Camera that’ll delight selfie takers, as this will make you look super sharp in those up-close selfies.
Interesting this may also be a great mini boombox as it has a dedicated AKM 4961 + 4490 audio chips, dual speaker setup and Dolby Atmos support. The 3,250 mAh battery seems up to the task, but I suspect it’s the Cameras and the super-fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset that’s got tongues and Wallets wagging in Europe!
If you are nature photographer, this is a great Camera to purchase this summer of 2016!
