ZTE has officially launched the Axon 7 into the market. The ZTE Axon 7 had been tipped to come with the name Axon 2 which seems logical, but the manufacturers chose Axon 7 and that is not a bad idea. The topmost specs of Android phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S7, iPhone 7 had the number 7 embedded in their names and ZTE wouldn’t want to be left out on that one on her flagship device.
