This summer Chinese smartphone maker ZTE launched a premium smartphone with a slightly-less-than-premium price tag. The ZTE Axon Pro is a phone with a 5.5 inch 2560 x 1440 pixel display, 4GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. At launch the company sold a model with 32GB of storage for $450.
Now ZTE is introducing a 64GB model, and that version is priced at $450. So what happens to the 32GB model? You can still buy one, but now it’ll cost just $400.
Still too much money? No problem. ZTE is also introducing a new phone simply called the ZTE Axon. It’s priced at $330.
The ZTE Axon has a 5.5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display with 400 pixels per inch (compared with 534 PPI for the Axon Pro), and the cheaper phone features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, an 32GB of storage.
Like its bigger siblings the ZTE Azon has a non-removable 3,000 mAh battery with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 and the phone ships with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software.
Other features include 802.11ac WiFI, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, a 13MP rear camera (with support for 4K video recording) and 2MP front camera and support for 4G LTE Cat 4.
2.3 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 (MSM8974)
Weird. I could swear the spec sheet they sent me said 800. But the website does say 801.
Hmm… although it also says MSM8974… which is the Snapdragon 800. I think the website is wrong.
Is Qualcomm fault for confusing name scheme.
I checked with ZTE. The spec sheet I saw first was wrong. It does have a Snapdragon 801 chip, which is good news.
