Just when the rumors were rising, ZTE has silently enlisted the new ZTE Axon 7 Max at their website. The Axon 7 Max comes with a bigger battery and a bigger display. Considering its Max branding you might have thought that the phone features similar specs to the Axon 7, however, the Axon 7 Max carries low specs than the Axon 7 to some degree.
Despite lacking some power, the Axon 7 Max is still a beast of a smartphone packing a 6-inch Full-HD Naked 3D display technology. The 3D display allows users to consume 3D content on the phone without the need for weird 3D glasses. In case you’re wondering ZTE is also providing 3D content to every buyer for free, which by the way is worth about 360 Yuan. The phone comes with some useful audio features including a real-time voice translator, voice assistant, and a voice activated camera command. Despite featuring some handy audio based software ZTE however, has stripped out the stereo speakers. The company has also withdrawn the dedicated AK4490EN DAC, instead, they went for an AK4962 with a cohesive voice DSP, which is average in terms of audio performance.
As far as remaining specs are concerned, the new Axon 7 Max is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 octa-core chipset with a clock speed of 2.0GHz. Memory wise the phone is backed up by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage which can be expanded via a microSD card. As for the camera the phone boasts a 13MP dual-camera at the back with laser autofocus and LED flash. There’s an 8MP camera, up front for selfies. There’s also a fingerprint scanner below the camera.
The whole phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and packs a 4,100mAh battery inside. The phone is priced at 2,999 Yuan ($443) and will go on sale from 2nd of November, 2016.
