With no clear successor on the horizon, ZTE Axon 7 is no longer being manufactured

Typically when a device reaches its end-of-life point, we either already have a successor announced, or even already have it on the market. However, well over a year after its initial debut, the ZTE Axon 7 has been out of stock for months with nothing in the pipeline (that we know of), and now the company has seemingly confirmed it’s no longer making the phone.

ZTE Axon M hands-on: the dual-screen foldable phone, take two [Video]

When ZTE unveiled its new foldable phone, the Axon M, yesterday at Duggal Greenhouse, it made some pretty grandiose claims, saying that it was “creating a new smartphone category.”

That didn’t seem entirely true to us, as we’ve seen a few similar phones in the past like the Kyocera Echo, but this latest attempt seems to be the most refined take yet on a niche design.

ZTE Axon 7 picks up Android 7.1.1 with Wi-Fi calling on T-Mobile and February security patch

Following its upgrade from Marshmallow to Nougat last month, ZTE is today making a slightly newer version of Android available to Axon 7 owners ─ 7.1.1.

ZTE Axon Multy: A dual-screen Android phone that’s reportedly coming this October for $650

One trend that’s been consistent this year is the use of tall, narrow displays with minimal bezels. Devices like the LG V30, Note 8, and Essential Phone are prime examples, but one device that’s apparently foregoing this trend and opting for something different is the ZTE Axon Multy.

ZTE is working to bring an official CyanogenMod ROM to the Axon 7

ZTE’s Axon 7 has become a hit that no one really expected, even though we probably should have. With flagship specs, a premium all-metal design, and a price tag under 0, the Axon 7 is a great device. One thing not everyone is a fan of though is its software.

Since there is a variant of the Axon 7 on the market with an unlocked bootloader, ROM development has been pretty strong for the phone. However, things are about to be pushed forward even further with ZTE revealing that it’s working on an official CyanogenMod ROM for the device along with the Cyanogen team themselves…

TENAA listing shows ZTE is about to launch another high-performance Android phone, AXON 2 incoming?

Last year, ZTE surprised us a little when it launched its Axon smartphone series. The Axon Pro, in particular, punched above its price point with a spec list that could make any tech fan’s eyes water (with tears of joy, naturally). It was one of the first devices to come with 4GB RAM, it had a QHD screen and was powered by the Snapdragon 810 processor. This year, it seems ZTE is going to refresh the range with a more premium look.

Android Nougat is now available for the ZTE Axon 7 w/ Daydream VR in tow

ZTE’s Axon 7 was one of the most popular “affordable flagships” of 2016, and for good reason. Packing top of the line specs, premium hardware, and useful features into a price tag under 0 was nothing short of impressive. However, ZTE has been just a little slow in updating the device. Now, the company has finally released Android Nougat for the Axon 7.

ZTE has just unveiled the next phone in its series of high performance, affordable, flagship-beating smartphones; the ZTE Axon 7.
