ZTE, a Chinese-based smartphone manufacturer, plans to release its AXON 7 smartphone in Canada later this year.
The phone, which ZTE says is inspired by “luxury cars,” was developed through a partnership with Designworks, a subsidiary of BMW Group, resulting in the phone’s “rounded corners and edges.”
To most people, however, ZTE’s latest full metal unibody offering, with rounded corners and edges, seems to adopt an aesthetic that’s very similar to other high-end Android devices currently on the market.
In terms of specs, the AXON 7 comes equipped with a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 pixel AMOLED display, 20 megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization and a f/1.8 aperture, 8 megapixel f/2.2 front facing camera and a 3250mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 functionality.
The phone will come in two variations, a standard version featuring 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, and a premium iteration equipped with 6GB of RAM with 128GB of ROM. It’s unclear what version will make its way to Canada.
Canadian pricing and a specific release date is currently unknown, but we’ll update this story when we know more.
