Is there any stopping to the expansion of the ambitious ZTE Axon gadget family? Not yet, as a lower-end but still impressive new 5.5-inch model joins the US and Chinese Quad HD Axons, the “international” 1,080p eye-scanning Axon Elite, the recently detailed Mini, and let’s not forget the Axon Watch.
We could also be treated to a phablet-sized Axon Max soon, as well as a Surface Pro and iPad Pro-rivaling massive Axon tablet. For the time being, we should focus on the humblest, cheapest phone on the roster to date, priced at $330 stateside with a Full HD screen in tow, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, and 2GB RAM.
The non-Pro ZTE Axon is just as large, beautiful and robust as $450+ configurations, and everything not mentioned above replicates the top-shelf variant’s specs to the letter. Those include a 13 + 2MP dual camera arrangement on the back, 8 megapixel selfie shooter, 3,000 mAh battery (likely capable of higher endurance numbers when keeping the FHD lights on), HiFi audio, 4G LTE connectivity, 32GB internal storage space, but sadly, no microSD expansion support.
Speaking of, a more digital hoarding-friendly ZTE Axon Pro flavor with a 64GB ROM is now also available from the manufacturer’s US e-store, Amazon, Newegg, and eBay in exchange for $450. Meanwhile, the 32 gig config, which used to cost $450, has been discounted to $400. Both tout 2K resolution panels, 2 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 810 chips, and 4GB RAM.
