ZTE launches two Axon variants to match your budget

Last July, ZTE surprised the mobile world when it unveiled the very high-end Axon smartphone, the first such premium device it launched in the US. But not everyone might have been able to stomach the price tag, especially considering ZTE sells its smartphones unlocked and in full price, without carrier subsidies. Responding to customer request, or so it says, ZTE is launching a slightly toned down ZTE Axon. But for those who can afford it, it is offering an even more expensive Axon Pro with 64 GB of storage.

ZTE ZMAX 2 coming to AT&T prepaid on Friday

Just because ZTE launched the surprisingly high-end Axon smartphone in the US doesn't mean it's about to go all out on the top tier market.

The Chinese OEM has just announced that it will be bringing its second generation ZTE ZMAX 2 phablet later this week and will be offering it on a prepaid arrangement, but this time with AT&T.

ZTE launches high end Axon Elite in global markets

The ZTE Axon is definitely a strange beast. Unlike your usual Chinese brand smartphone, it launched first in the US. When it did launch in China, it took on a slightly different form, the Axon Elite which adds three biometric security features to the already high end smartphone. Now, after barely two months, ZTE is taking the IFA 2015 floor to announce that the Axon Elite, not the plain Axon, will also be available in Europe, Latin America, and Asia-Pacific markets in the coming months.

Go West : The march of Chinese Mobile OEMs to the U.S.

ZTE made an unexpected, if you haven't been monitoring the rumor mill, announcement yesterday. A new Axon smartphone brand that puts mainstream flagships on notice with its high-end specs and sub-premium price. That is, however, just the tip of the Chinese iceberg.

Huawei made an interesting proposition when it announced the P8 lite smartphone and seems to be a crowd favorite for the next Google Nexus smartphone. The dragon is rising and OEMs should take note. But this journey to the West, just like the novel, is fraught with challenges.
