ZTE Puts The Axon 7 On Sale In The U.S. Today

ZTE's new flagship Axon 7 has been available for preorder in some territories for a little while, but for customers in the United States, preorder pricing is over with and official sales begin as of today. The phone is priced at $399.98, and will begin shipping to most customers between August 17 and September 9. The phone will be available through many of the usual suspects, such as Amazon, Newegg, and B&H Photo & Video, with some outlets giving customers freebies when they purchase the sub-$400 flagship device.

For a quick recap on the specs that have earned the phone flagship status alongside its fairly cheap price tag, it's prudent to look first to the heart of the matter; the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 serves as the center of the operation, backed up by 4GB of RAM. That processor pushes 1440 x 2560 pixels across a 5.5 inch panel, with a 3,250mAh battery keeping the party going for a purported 16 hours of talk time. That same battery is capable of fast-charging its way to 83% from a complete drain in just 30 minutes. Along with those core specs, the Axon 7 also features a number of HiFi audio options. Dual microphones and dual front-facing speakers are packed with Dolby ATMOS technology to allow for HiFi recording and playback. Because of a huge array of sensors, a low-persistence, high-refresh rate screen, and the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, the ZTE Axon 7 is also the world's first Google Daydream VR ready phone with full support for the entire spectrum of future Daydream VR applications. The whole shebang is encased in a beautiful unibody aluminum shell.

Being the first phone ready for Google's new VR initiative and having a star-studded spec sheet would be enough on their own to give this phone the potential to sell like hotcakes, but the extremely low price tag heats things up a bit. The Axon 7 has all the makings of a mobile success story; it essentially will come down to marketing and availability. It's not known at this time whether the Axon 7 will be making its way to any U.S. carriers, making good marketing and good availability across applicable retail outlets that much more important.
