With the Mobile World Congress 2017 now over, retailers and OEMs are doing the usual – clearing the shelves for newer devices.
The MWC 2017 saw a flurry of devices unveiled and in fact, more are still coming in. With this in mind, ZTE, which was also at the event to unveil the world’s first Gigabit phone, is also slashing prices for older devices in readiness for newer ones via its official online store.
Like any other Chinese phone, ZTE relies on price as its USP, selling devices with high-end specs while managing to keep the price as low as possible. Last year’s flagship, the ZTE Axon 7, has all the bells and whistles that you can ever want in a high-end phone like the Galaxy S7 Edge, HTC 10 and others, but you’ll definitely love it when it comes to pricing when compared to the rest of the party.
So far, the ZTE Axon 7 is valued at $399.98 and for this, you get a device with a full metal unibody, a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED screen with 2.5D Gorilla Glass 4 on top, a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB RAM, 64GB expandable storage, 20MP/8MP main and secondary cameras and a 3250mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0 technology. If this is too hot to handle, well, the same store is offering a massive $100 discount on the ZTE Axon 7 Mini, which as the name suggests, is a weaker version of the flagship.
The ZTE Axon 7 Mini gets a 5.2-inch AMOLED screen with Full HD resolution and 2.5D Gorilla Glass 4 on top. Under the hood, the phone ships with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 that is paired with a RAM of 3GB and expandable storage of 32GB. The back has a decent 16MP shooter with EIS and PDAF while the front comes in with an 8MP selfie sensor.
To keep the Axon 7 Mini alive is a 2705mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 2.0 technology. The design material used on the flagship is still featured here – a full metal unibody – and Android Marshmallow runs the show out of the box. Being an unlocked phone, it works with both GSM and CDMA carriers as well as supports the likes of LTE, NFC, fingerprint scanning, USB-C and other latest connectivity standards.
All these will set you back a mere $199.98, but this is limited until March 11. In short, hurry up while this deal still lasts, otherwise, you’ll be forced to buy the phone at the normal price of $299.98.
