ZTE are really doing the whole teaser thing this time around for the Axon 7, with the latest being a short video showing the phone and hinting at a VR launch.
ZTE have been teasing the release of their Axon 7 phone on the 26th May with previous leaks telling us to expect high-end audio performance, and an ad in The Wall Street Journal giving us a small peak at the phone.
In a video release today, ZTE have shown the Axon 7 again but this time giving us a good look at the screen of the phone, which partially obscuring the dual front facing speakers (a feature other Axon phones also have).
Freezing the video at the point the phone is shown we can make out that the colour of the Axon 7 is more of a light gold when compared to previous versions, and that the screen has those much talked about black borders all around. In fact it’s plain to see black borders on either side of the screen with much larger black bands above and below the display.

The final hint in the video is the image of a VR headset, which is likely a simple unit that can be used in conjunction with the Axon 7 (leaks in China have suggested a 2K display has been chosen for a better VR experience).
In unofficial leaks we have seen that the Axon 7 will feature a 5.5-inch QHD display, 4GB RAM, Snapdragon 820 chipset, rear fingerprint scanner and a 20 mega-pixel main camera.
