    The wait is over, ZTE has taken the wraps off its new high-end device. It's called Axon, and it was apparently designed in the US, with the US market in mind.

    ZTE will sell the Axon unlocked for $449.98 (without tax). What you get for that amount of cash is quite a bit of smartphone, so to speak.

    The Axon has a 5.5-inch QHD LCD touchscreen, a dual rear camera (13 MP + 2 MP) with dual-LED flash and 4K video capture, an 8 MP selfie camera, a whopping 4GB of RAM, as well as 32GB of of non-expandable storage.

    Running the show is the well known Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, boasting a 2 GHz octa-core CPU in ARM's big.LITTLE configuration. The Axon has a 3,000 mAh non-removable battery (with quick charge support) and it runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, an almost stock version.

    It has a metallic body, Hi-Fi audio playback of 32-bit 192KHz audio files, and (obviously) 4G LTE support.

    It will be available in Ion Gold, Chromium Silver, and Phthalo Blue. You can already pre-order it from ZTE and get a free TPU case and a pair of JBL earbuds (which are a $49.99 value). Pre-orders should also be available at Amazon, Newegg, and eBay shortly. There's no information about a shipping date yet.
