ZTE released the Axon 7 in May in China, and it has made quite an impression on the market with its high-end specs. After prices for the smartphone leaked in May, the company finally made the device available in Europe last month and now in the US.

ZTE’s flagship Axon 7 has at long last arrived in the US, specifically, at ZTEUSA.com, Amazon, Best Buy, B&H, and Newegg. Pre-orders are now live, and the smartphone will cost about $400, approximately the same as the OnePlus 3. ZTE Axon 7 will directly compete against Samsung’s Galaxy S7, HTC 10, LG G5, and obviously OnePlus 3.

A comparison with OnePlus’ flagship killer is in order, considering that the two devices sport roughly the same specs, with the Axon 7 having a clearer display compared to it rival’s 1080p resolution. Then, the Axon 7’s AMOLED panel makes the smartphone suitable for Google’s Daydream mobile VR platform, especially since the handset is compatible with it. Daydream VR is expected to arrive by fall.

ZTE Axon 7 starts shipping on July 27

The two smartphones carry the same processor, a Snapdragon 820 chip, but RAM capacity differs, with the Axon 7 having 4GB of RAM and the OnePlus 3 providing 6GB of RAM. RAM capacity on the OnePlus 3 was quite a controversial topic, considering that the device was said not to make proper use of the 6GB of RAM. However, the new OxygenOS update has rolled out and supposedly fixed the issue.

The ZTE Axon 7 comes with a 5.5-inch display, an 8MP front camera, and a 20MP unit on the back. The smartphone should run Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 out of the box, with MiFavor UI 4.0 on top. In addition, it has a 3,250mAh non-removable battery with Quick Charge 3.0 technology while internal memory reaches 64GB, with the option to expand to 128GB using a microSD card.

The Ion Gold variant of ZTE Axon 7 will start shipping on July 27 while the Quartz Gray variant will arrive at your door later, on August 17.
