Basically what the title has said.
I fell in love with the Axon 7 when I saw it last year but I was in no shape to buy a new device. This year, I bought a OnePlus 5 as my upgrade. While it is is treating me well, I would sell it so fast if something along the lines of an Axon 8 was to be announced.
ZTE nailed it with spec sheet last year and they don't have to do much to keep it compelling today. Just take the Axon 7 and put a Snapdragon 835 with 6GB of ram and I'm sold. I am aware of their new Nubia Z17 and while I was impressed with that too, it lacks the features that compelled me to look at the A7. Another thing is bootloader unlocking, I was stoked when I heard the A7 got an official BL unlock and I really want to continue with future Axon devices. The only reason I bought a OnePlus 5 is because its unlocked and has flagship specs. If ZTE can offer this to me and all the added features the A7 had, it would become an instant buy for me.
I know I am not alone when it comes to OnePlus customers who are watching the company leave their community behind. This will likely be my last OnePlus device as they are leaving the marketplace they created, and I believe ZTE has to potential to fill that gap. The A7 was well done and the A8 could be even better.
Maybe someone will see this and consider making this Axon 8 a reality.
