ZTE has added a new smartphone to its Axon family in China with the launch of the Axon Max. It comes as a successor to the ZTE Axon, which was unveiled in July this year with 4GB of RAM and a dual-camera setup. Similar to the other Axon offerings, the Axon Max is encased in an aircraft-grade aluminium-titanium alloy body that measures 7.5mm around the waist.
The ZTE Axon Max comes with a 6-inch full HD AMOLED display bearing a pixel density of 367ppi. The phone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, coupled with 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 405 GPU. There’s 32GB of expandable memory. The device sports a 16MP rear snapper with phase detection autofocus, f/1.9 aperture and an LED flash, and an impressive 13MP selfie shooter. The other features include 4G LTE, dual hybrid-SIM slots, Android Lollipop with MiFavor 3.5 UI, and a 4,140mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0 technology from Qualcomm.
The ZTE Axon Max also comes with a fingerprint sensor that is located right below the rear camera, and a USB Type-C port. The phone comes in gold, and is priced at 2,799 Yuan, approximately Rs 28,600. The device will go on sale in China later this month, but there’s no word regarding its global rollout yet.
