ZTE Axon Elite goes on sale in the United Kingdom, Europe and virtually everywhere else
At the 2015 Berlin IFA tradeshow that held earlier this month, ZTE announced a global variant of the Axon smartphone. The new variant has now gone on sale globally — except in the United States and Canada where the supposedly superior Axon Elite Pro is already available (China also has a ZTE Axon Lux variant).
In the United Kingdom, the ZTE Axon Elite is priced £299.99 at eBay. Links to the French, Italian, and Spanish versions of the ecommerce website show the smartphone has a €420 price in the respective countries. The product’s global price is tagged at $470.
Spec-wise, the ZTE Axon Elite sports a 5.5-inch Quad HD touchscreen, 13-megapixel back camera with dual sensor and dual LED flash, and an 8-megapixel selfie camera up front. The smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset alongside 3GB of RAM and Adreno 430 GPU. Running on Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, the metal-clad handset features a fingerprint sensor and Quick Charge 2.0 for super fast charging of the 3,000mAh battery.
Back in July, ZTE launched the Axon Pro in the United States with a $450 price tag. Shortly afterwards, the Chinese OEM unveiled the ZTE Axon Lux priced CNY 3888 (about $609) in its home country.
24 September 2015, Shanghai – The ZTE Axon Elite is now available for purchase via eBay in a number of markets across Europe and a number of other regions worldwide (not including the U.S and Canada). The Axon Elite is on sale for 419.99 Euros (299.99 GBP or 469.99 USD) and for its first day on sale only, will come with a free 64G memory card.
The ZTE Axon Elite was officially launched in Berlin earlier this month at IFA 2015. During the show, Axon was awarded a ‘User Experience Gold Award’ by IDG and German Industry and Commerce Ltd.
ZTE’s Axon phones combine the right hardware and software to offer the best sound quality, camera functionality, and all-round smooth performance. This includes ‘dual track’ high fidelity sound recording and playback, as well as dual rear-cameras that capture high resolution images and videos.
The Axon Elite sports a 5.5-inch full HD resolution display, Corning’s Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and comes with 32GB of internal storage, which can be expanded to an extra 128GB with a microSD card. The device can be unlocked with three different biometric authentication options – fingerprint, voice control and eye-scan.
ZTE has partnered with eBay to sell a number of its innovative devices in markets across the globe, including the ZTE Open, ZTE Open C and the Blade S6 Plus.
