ZTE goes the Microsoft way; launches three new phones

ZTE has launched three new mobile phones to let you choose the one that suits you best. Named AXON, AXON mini and AXON MAX, these phones range from low-sized displays and decent specs to large displays and premium specs.

You won't call the AXON Mini a 'mini' phone if you knew that it sports a 5.2 inch display. The rest of the specifications aren't mini either and the phone makes us wonder what the AXON Max would be like.

AXON Mini features a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED Full HD 2.5D curved-edge screen, a Snapdragon 616 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 13MP and 8MP cameras and a 2,800 mAh battery.

AXON Mini will also let you add up to 128GB of storage through its microSD port. Despite being curved, the device is made of rugged aluminium-titanium alloy and contains a pressure-sensitive display.

While yesterday's launch was all about the AXON Mini, ZTE did concede that AXON Max will be "a larger-screen smartphone device with a bigger battery." The company is yet to reveal detailed specifications of the new phone.

However, available leaks suggest AXON Max will feature a 6-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM, up to 64GB of internal storage, a 13MP primary camera and a 3,000 mAh battery.

The third phone, ZTE AXON, is supposed to be a more powerful than AXON Mini but less-classy than the AXON Max. Featuring a 5.5 inch Quad HD display, it also contains a 3,000 mAh battery, 4GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage capacity, 13MP and 8MP cameras and a Snapdragon 810 chip.

ZTE will sell AXON Mini in Ion Gold, Chromium Silver and Rose Gold colours and the device will be sold as two variants- AXON mini (Premium Edition) and AXON mini. Both variants will be available in Europe for 389 EUR and 329 EUR respectively. This will translate to £289 and £245 in UK for each gadget.

Given that most mid-range and low-priced phones these days contain larger than 5-inch displays and premium specifications, smartphones these days are much more affordable and latest technologies are being made available to all consumers regardless of their spending limits.
