ZTE’s enhanced Axon 7 adds more features to the powerful smartphone


Chinese manufacturer ZTE has announced an enhanced version of its powerful Axon 7 smartphone. This new version packs in three major improvements that add increased benefits to the powerhouse device. Notably, the enhanced Axon 7 features 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. These are increases from 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage in the standard model.

Additionally, ZTE has added Force Touch technology, which allows the display to sense pressure levels and react in different ways. This is the first time that ZTE has used Force Touch in a US device, though customers are aware of the functionality due to Apple’s recent iPhones implementing the same technology.

Other specs of the Axon 7 remain the same, such as a 5.5-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 820 processor, Hi-Fi audio and dual stereo speakers, and a 20-megapixel camera with f/1.8 aperture. This enhanced version of the Axon 7 is available in limited quantities through ZTE’s website and can be purchased for $499.98.
