ZTE Axon 7 Unveiled with VR Compatability
ZTE is trying to get back in the smartphone race with the unveiling of a new smartphone that is compatible with VR devices. The ZTE Axon 7 is the newest flagship phone from the company. The new phone is packed with so many futuristic specs. Despite its future tech vibe, however, the ZTE Axon 7 is quite affordable.
The specs of the ZTE Axon 7 are as follows:
- 5.5 inch QHD display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor
- 4 GB RAM
- 64 GB internal storage
- 20-megapixel rear camera
- 8-megapixel front camera
- 3,140mAh battery pack
- USB Type-C port
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system
- Gold or Quartz Grey color options

It is worth noting that there are variants. There will be a 5.2-inch display version and a larger one with a 6-inch display with 6 GB and 128 GB internal storage, respectively. The top tier version will be available in China and will be Force Touch optimized. This is similar to the 3D Touch feature of the iPhone 6s released in 2015, iDigital Times reported.
According to ZTE's Vice President of Technology Planning and Partnerships Jeff Yee, “It can't be just storage. If we only did a higher configuration along with an expandable slot, people would say, 'gosh I have to $50 more for 128 versus 64, when I can get 128GB memory card for $20.'”
The Axon 7's VR devices are already one of the first devices that is compatible with "Daydream," Google's newest platform for VR. ZTE has been closely monitoring trends and the pumped up VR capabilities of the Axon 7 is one of its selling points, China Daily reported.
The Axon 7 is already available in China for 3,299 yuan or about $503. By June 2, it will be available worldwide. There is no word yet if the Force Touch version will hit US shores.
“For Force Touch to reach the U.S. and other mainstream applications, Google needs to support Force Touch in Android N, which we’ve convinced them to do. But it’s coming as a maintenance release to N. When the timing is right and there’s applications, we’ll be bringing that configuration to the U.S.,” Yee said.
