These will be the flagships products of the company, the Mini coming in a normal and a premium version plus the Axon Watch.
In the official announcement, CEO of ZTE described the new models the following way:
“Devices in our ZTE AXON product lines are designed entirely with consumers in mind and to be the nerve center of everything they do”
ZTE AXON Mini
The ZTE AXON Mini is a well-designed smartphone that was announced back in July. Its uniqueness is the pressure-sensitive 5.2-inch curved touch screen that gamers might be excited to hear.
