Is the 3D content creation and consumption gimmick making a comeback both on phones and computers? Could Microsoft and ZTE finally unlock the technology’s full potential, turning it into something practical and mass-appealing?
Unfortunately, we still know too little about the soon-to-be-updated Paint 3D graphics app, while the Axon 7 Max is official and already up for pre-order in China, but unlikely to ever expand to Western markets.
Priced at the rough equivalent of $440 (3,000 Yuan), the oversized Axon 7 downgrades a couple of its smaller predecessor’s features, settling for a 6-inch 1080p display, as well as Snapdragon 625 processing power instead of 820.
But the 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, rear-positioned fingerprint reader, 8MP front-facing shooter, and premium sound enhancements aren’t going anywhere, with battery capacity upgraded from 3,250 to 4,100 mAh to fit inside a larger, similarly top-quality frame.
On top of it all, you have two 13MP cameras on the back of the ZTE Axon 7 Max as opposed to the 5.5-inch variant’s single 20-megapixel snapper, which we’ll need to wait and test out (if possible) to see if it’s an improved photography arrangement or not.
What we know is the dual cams tout some kind of 3D snapshot and video-recording capabilities, with the gargantuan 6-inch Full HD screen then able to render said 3D content to the “naked eye”, no special glasses required. Game-changing or gimmicky selling point, what do you reckon?
