ZTE just announced preorders for the Axon 7 mini and named a price: $299.98. The mini is the smaller and cheaper version of ZTE's flagship Axon 7. As of today you can preorder the phone from Amazon, B&H, Best Buy, NewEgg, and ZTE’s online store, although no release date has been announced.
The Axon 7 mini has a smaller, 5.2-inch screen, and otherwise looks like a smaller version of the larger Axon 7. The phone also has a 1080p screen, 3GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon 617 processor, making it a decidedly budget phone, especially compared with the higher-end specs of the more powerful Axon 7. Additionally, it lacks the Google Daydream compatibility that the Axon 7 offers. However, the Axon 7 mini’s $299.98 price point comes in at $100 cheaper than the $399.98 full size Axon 7, meaning that while you’re getting less phone for your money, you’re also spending less money for your phone.
