ZTE’s flagship phone the Axon 7 will finally launch in Australia this month after an extensive period of testing.
ZTE has announced the launch on their Australian Facebook page advising that the launch has been pushed back to the end of October due to ‘high global demand and specific requirements for the Australian market’. Testing of the phone included tweaking software and radios for the much vaunted Band 28 700MHz network here in Australia.
The Axon 7 packs a mean punch when it comes to hardware with a 5.5″ QHD resolution display, Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage with microSD card slot and 3,250 mAh battery. ZTE has priced their flagship level phone aggressively at $699 – though somewhat above the $399USD ($520AUD) price tag the phone has in the US.

If the $699 price tag is a little too expensive for your tastes, you can always try your luck on their Facebook page where they have launched a competition to give one away.
