The specifications of what may be ZTE’s toned down version of the Axon 7 has been leaked online. The phone, said to be named Axon 7 Mini, looks like a miniature version of the Axon 7 flagship device which was announced on May 26 in China and became available in Europe about a month later.
The leaked specification is also noticeably similar to the Axon Mini which was released last year with Force touch display. The ZTE Axon Mini featured a 5.2-inch 1080p Full HD OLED display with Pressure Screen technology, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 1.5GHz octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 2800mAh battery, a 13-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, and boots Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Quite surprisingly, according to the leaked features, the Axon 7 Mini packs a 1.5GHz Snapdragon 617 processor and that happens to be the only thing differentiating it from the Axon Mini. The Axon 7 Mini is rumored to also sport a 5.2-inch 1080p display with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage which is expandable up to 128GB. Going on, the Axon 7 Mini is said to feature a 13MP main camera at the back, and an 8MP front-facing camera, NFC support, dual-SIM and dual standby.
Presently, the Axon Mini sells for 999 yuan ($150), so it is not clear if ZTE would make the price tag on the Axon 7 Mini to be at par with its predecessor or would ramp up the price. But then it’s all still rumors, and even though there might be a mini version of the Axon 7, it may likely sport different specs from the ones leaked.
