ZTE has announced pricing and availability for the Axon 7 smartphone that it revealed last month. The Axon 7 is a 5.5-inch Android smartphone that will be compatible with Google’s Daydream VR system when the latter launches this fall. ZTE is opening preorders of the Axon 7, which sells for $399.98, through Amazon, Best Buy, B&H, Newegg, and its own online store today, with delivery to start on July 27th.

Aside from the Daydream compatibility, the Axon 7 has a quad HD AMOLED display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, a hi-fi audio system, a 20-megapixel camera, and a full metal design. It has dual SIM card slots that are compatible with GSM networks, such as AT&T and T-Mobile. Those specs put it up against phones that have much higher price tags, so it will be interesting to see how the Axon 7 holds up once we’ve spent some time with it.
