ZTE is trying hard to capture the international market with its Axon range of smartphones. The range specializes in high-end hardware at an affordable price tag as compared to competitors like Apple and Samsung. The company had announced the ZTE Axon, Axon Lux and Pro version in US a few weeks back. Now, the company has outed yet another Axon smartphone, called as the ZTE Axon Elite. This particular device will share most of the specs as the Axon model, but will be aimed at the international market.
As for the specs, the ZTE Axon features the same Snapdragon 810 chipset that was found in the US edition, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage on board. This is further expandable via MicroSD card slot. The phone comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD LCD display with 2.5D glass. As for the camera, you will find dual camera setup (13MP + 2MP) at the back. Up front, theres the standard 8MP wide-angle shooter.
Under the hood, the ZTE Axon Elite features a 3,000mAh battery with Quick Charge. This should be enough for a day’s usage easily. Like the flagship, the Elite will also feature the AKM 4961 Hi-Fi Audio chip inside. So, audiophiles won’t be disappointed. Finally, the phone comes with three different types of biometric identification options: fingerprint, voice scan and eye scan.
The ZTE Axon Elite model will be available for sale for 420 EUR ($468) in France, Italy, Spain, Germany and UK from September 24. Users can purchase the device directly from Ebay for the said price. In the coming weeks, the phone will enter some Asian markets such as Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong. [source]
