Axon 7 Mini now available in Canada for $399 outright

Axon’s newest handset, a “more svelte version of the flagship Axon 7 smartphone,” is now available in Canada through Virgin Mobile for $399 CAD outright and $0 on a gold two-year plan.

The handset was announced in September 2016, revealing an audio-focused device with a 5.2-inch display that — in this day and age — qualifies it as ‘miniature.’ The handset features a pared down version of the Axon 7’s specs in accordance with its mid-range price point.
