Last month, ZTE took to the stage to unveil a new smartphone. In fact, it was not only a new smartphone they were announcing, but a new smartphone brand which was dubbed Axon. The main Axon device was the flagship offering and came touting a number of high-end specs and was seen as a good contender for those looking for a top tier smartphone. However, that was not the only device the company announced at the event. As well as the ZTE Axon, the company announced the ZTE Axon Mini. That said, specs and details of this device was not really provided.
Well, it now looks as though the ZTE Axon Mini has passed through TENAA and this means there are a few more details and specs to take note of. In terms of the specs,, the Axon Mini looks set to arrive with a 5.2-inch display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Inside, the Axon Mini will be equipped with 3GB RAM and powered by an octa-core processor (clocking at 1.5 GHz). Moving to the cameras, and there looks to be an 8-megapixel rear camera which is coupled with another 8-megapixel camera on the front. Storage is set at 16GB as standard, although there is a microSD card slot on offer for expanding the storage. The Axon Mini looks set to arrive with Android 5.1, brings 4G support and goes by the model number ZTE B2015.
Specs aside though, the one feature which was known in advance and which really sets the Axon Mini apart from other smartphones, is that it is said to come sporting Force Touch. For those new to Force Touch, this is a feature will essentially mean the device will be able to differentiate between different pressured touches. Touch softly and one action is performed, touch more forcefully, the system understands and performs a different function. This is a feature which is rumored to be arriving on the next iPhone due next month, however, with the ZTE Axon Mini, it does look like ZTE are hoping to be the first manufacturer to bring the feature to market on a smartphone. Now the device has passed through TENAA, this is one step closer to happening.
