After OnePlus, ZTE brings in an improved Axon 7 variant

ZTE has launched a premium variant of the Axon 7 which, like the OnePlus 3T, brings in improved hardware and Force Touch technology.

ZTE's premium Axon 7 variant comes with up to 128GB of internal storage and 6GB of RAM.

Guess how much this 6-inch ZTE phablet costs?

ZTE's Axon 7 featured earlier as among the best-priced mid-range handsets of the year. Like the OnePlus 3, ZTE Axon 7 arrived with brilliant specifications at just £359 and threatened other mid-range delights like the iPhone SE, the OnePlus 3, the Honor 8 and the Moto G4. It's list of specifications included a 5.5-inch Quad HD display protected by a Gorilla Glass 4 screen, the latest Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, up to 64GB of in-built storage, 20-MP and 8-MP cams and a powerful 3,250 mAh battery.

The phone come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and its list of features included Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 technology, a USB Type-C port for faster charging and data transfers, two dedicated Audio chips and support for Dolby Atmos Surround Sound audio quality.

ZTE Axon 7 is now available to pre-order at just £359

ZTE has now gone ahead and introduced an even better variant of the Axon 7 which will retain the name unlike OnePlus' 3T. The new variant comes with an upgraded 6GB of RAM and double the storage at 128GB. At the same time, ZTE are introducing 'Force Touch technology' with the phone and this will enable users to view more shortcuts after long-pressing an app, but since Android doesn't support this technology yet, it remains to be seen how ZTE will be able to pull this off. Developers will need to fine-tune their apps to work with Force Touch technology as well and it may thus take a while before the technology can be used on a wide scale.

The original ZTE Axon 7 was made available to pre-order on Amazon on July 28 and really caught the attention of buyers and analysts alike. The new premium variant is now available in the United States in Ion Gold for $500 (£402) but it isn't known yet if the phone will be made available in the UK. With demand for phablets rising rapidly, the phone, thanks to 6GB of RAM, a brilliant display and good processing power, should catch the attention of those who aren't planning on spending in excess of £500 on a new phablet.
