Back in April, ZTE announced the Axon 7S powered by the Snapdragon 821 chipset. It is finally up for sale in China for 4599 Yuan($675).
The Axon line of smartphones by ZTE is their premium flagship line of phones. And they have been doing justice to their title. The Axon 7 is an example. The Axon 7S follows heavily on its predecessor, Axon 7’s design.
On the spec front, the Axon 7S sports a 5.5 in QHD display. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset, an old, but powerful chip coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage which is expandable, an upgrade over its predecessor’s 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage.
In the camera department, the rear sports a dual camera setup with a 20MP Sony IMX350, 1.25micropixel sensor and a 12MP Sony IMX368, 1micropixel sensor. The front houses an 8MP sensor for selfies. A 3,500mAh battery fuels the Axon 7S with support for Quick Charge 3.0 via USB Type-C port.
As compared to many flagships on the market, the 7S doesn’t really stand out. It doesn’t have specs which you’d expect in a smartphone that’s a flagship in 2017. Priced at 4599 Yuan ($675) on Jingdong, the 7S is pretty expensive even for a flagship if you compare other phones on the market.
