Axon launches are rare, but they usually bring something exciting. The next unit slated for release is the ZTE Axon Max 2 (C2017), its specs revealed by a GFX Bench listing.
A successor to last year’s 6″ model, it keeps the 1080p screen, but upgrades the chipset to the power-efficient Snapdragon 625, which still has enough oomph to record 4K video through the 13MP main camera. The front camera seems to be the exact same unit – 13MP stills and 4K video.
The Axon Max 2 will come with generous amounts of memory – 4GB RAM and 64GB storage (no info on a microSD card). It will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow with ZTE’s latest MiFavor skin.
The original ZTE Axon Max
Chipset aside, the phone has fairly high-end specs, but don’t hold your breath – the original Max launched in December last year, so we may be months away from seeing the Axon Max 2 hit the shelves.
