ZTE finally announced their Axon Mini smartphone touting a Force Touch Display in China a few days back. The best part however was the announcement that followed post launch. Apparently ZTE announced that they will be rolling out the Axon Mini to a number of countries including India very soon.
The USP of the ZTE Axon Mini lies in the Force Touch Display implementation. However if you are searching for a budget powerhouse, then the ZTE Axon Mini is surely not for you. The Snapdragon 616 powered SoC is priced rather high thanks to its Force Touch novelty.
ZTE however has you covered in the form of the flagship ZTE Axon Elite 4G. The device is basically an improved version of the ZTE Axon Pro that was launched in US a few months back.
Launched at the IFA Berlin, the ZTE Axon Elite 4G comes with some added niceties over the US version including the Fingerprint Sensor, Retina Scanner and MicroSD card slot.
Under the hood the Axon Elite 4G sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC with an Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB RAM. The back of this metal constructed device is a dual rear camera setup (13MP IMX214 + 2MP) for added depth of field. It carries over the sensor from the Axon Pro, which apparently had one of the best implementation of a dual camera setup.
The front however has a 5.5 inch FULL HD (1920x1080) SHARP made display. This is apparently lower than the QHD (2560x1440) panel found on the Axon Pro. Nevertheless it is still sports one of the best Full HD display available in the market.
ZTE launched the device at a price of approximately $483/Rs 31,100 (419.99 Euro) at the IFA a few months back. However it seems that the device has received price cut and is now available at just $399 (Rs 26,000) at a top Chinese retailer GearBest using the coupon code AXONGB.
This is a highly competitive price for a device of its caliber. So expect ZTE to take the market with storm when it launches the Axon Elite in India by the end of this year. In fact at this price point the Axon Elite 4G is worthy competitor (if not better) to the OnePlus 2!
