ZTE’s Axon 7 smartphone has the kind of specs you’d expect from a $600 smartphone, but it has a much lower price. First announced in May, the ZTE Axon 7 is available for pre-order today for $400.

I won’t go so far as to say that it’s a top-tier phone with a mid-range price. But that certainly seems like a very good price for a phone with a Snapdragon 820 processor, at least 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, and a a 2560 x 1440 pixel display.

The Axon 7 is expected to begin shipping by the end of July, and right now you can pre-order from retailers including ZTEUSA, AmazonB&H, Newegg, and Best Buy.

The phone features a 5.5 inch AMOLED display, stereo front-facing speakers, 24-bit/96 kHz audio support, 802.11ac WiFi. Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, a USB 3.0 Type-C connector, a 3,250 mAh battery, and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support which lets you get a 50 percent charge in a half hour.

On the back of the phone there’s a fingerprint sensor and a 20MP rear camera with support for 4K video recording, optical image stabilization, phase detection auto-focus, and 240 fps slow-motion video recording. There’s an 8MP camera on the front of the phone.

ZTE also says the Axon 7 will be one of the first phones to support Google’s Daydream VR platform when it launches this fall… but since Google hasn’t actually released the specifications for Daydream-ready hardware yet, that remains to be seen.

The $400 model features 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, but during ZTE’s launch event for the phone the company said the Axon 7 would also be available with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There’s no word on if or when that option will be available in the US.
