This is an exciting morning, having woken up to a plethora of Axon 7 news from last night's launch event in China! For the rest of us on the other side of the Pacific, there are still many questions unanswered. That said, here is further info about the Axon 7 that we can expect here in the US shortly.
- When will it be launched in the US?
- All signs point to a mid-June release date
- How much will it cost?
- While the official price in the US has not been announced, expect it to be below $500. Quite impressive for a flagship device, wouldn't you say?!
- Will there be any differences between the US and International versions of the Axon 7?
- The US version will have more of a stock Android experience (woot woot)! This feedback has been cleared voiced by our US fans and we hear you loud and clear!
- What colors will be made available?
- There will be two color choices: Ion Gold and Quartz Gray. Which will you choose?
- Will it launch with Marshmallow or Google N?
- While it ships with Marshmallow, we are working to enable Google N upgrades as soon as possible
- Any news about VR compatibility or accessory availability?
- Something is brewing here related to VR, but we cannot say more at this time. Check back often for updates!
- Will it be sold through US carriers?
- The Axon 7 will be sold as an unlocked phone to be used on US GSM carriers such as T-Mobile, AT&T, etc. You will be able to purchase this from ZTE USA and major retailers, after which you can pop in your GSM SIM card to get it fired up. Note: the phone itself is banded to support CDMA networks as well, such as Verizon and Sprint, so we hope to make the Axon 7 phone available for CDMA carriers, though this is not certain at this time
- Does it only come in one size?
- One size doesn't necessarily fit all, we agree. That said, there is only one size for this launch, but we are always evaluating variants of our products, be it size or form or software or anything else
- What else is included with this phone?
- Every Axon purchase comes with a 2-year warranty
As the days and weeks tick by before our official US launch, stay tuned to this thread for more updates and sneak peeks!
