ZTE Axon Mini goes official with iPhone 6S-like display, price revealed

Among the many smartphones from the ZTE Axon range is the new Mini device which has just been officially launched by the Chinese company. It has been revealed that this phone will soon be making its way into China, and will later be seen entering nations like Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, Russia, Japan, India, Australia, France, Germany, Turkey, Spain and Italy.

One of the many highlights of the ZTE Axon Mini happens to be the fact that it features a pressure sensitive display, like the one on the iPhone 6S range. This means pressing harder on the screen provides you with more functions.

This ZTE offering exhibits support for three different biometric authentication options namely, fingerprint scanning, voice control and eye scanning. The phone’s body has been made from an aircraft-grade aluminum-titanium alloy, and comes in ion gold, chromium silver and rose gold colors.
