With all the attention given to the fast-rising Huawei, OPPO, Vivo and even LeEco of late, it feels another promising Chinese smartphone manufacturer isn’t quite getting the buzz it perhaps deserves.

Unlike three of its four aforementioned domestic rivals, ZTE already caters to an American audience in addition to Asian and European budget-conscious mobile consumers with both entry-level devices and premium models.

But if the Axon 7 is too rich for your blood, freebies included, you’ll be happy to hear a diminutive, watered-down version will probably break cover soon. The ZTE Axon 7 Mini isn’t exactly tiny, according to a few major German retailers, matching the 5.2-inch screen diagonal and 1080p resolution of last year’s first-gen Axon Mini.

If MediaMarkt is correct in its (educated) guesses, the Axon 7 Mini and Axon Mini have a number of features in common, from 3GB RAM to 32GB expandable storage, 8MP front cameras, and rear-fitted fingerprint sensors.

Meanwhile, the Snapdragon 616 processor is (marginally) upgraded to a 617, you get a single 16MP main cam this time around, and the battery is oddly downgraded to 2,705 mAh. Needless to stress the ZTE Axon 7 Mini is set to greatly resemble its big brother on the outside, likely carrying a lower €300 price tag in Europe, which could translate to $300 stateside.
