ZTE has been producing smartphones that have been reliably solid, but they’ve yet to really hit something out of the park, which means they’re yet to be a threat to the bigger players. That might change, and soon, with the ZTE Axon 7.

The ZTE Axon and ZTE Axon Pro were good phones, if unremarkable. The ZTE Axon 7, scheduled for a reveal on May 26, boasts incredible specs: Qualcomm Snapdragn 820 chipset, 5.5-inc QHD screen, 4GB RAM, 64GB of storage (plus MicroSD), fingerprint sensor, 20-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel front camera, and a 3140mAh battery. Like I said, it’s an undoubtedly impressive phone. The kicker? It might come in a lot cheaper than most flagship phones, which would certainly be disruptive in the smartphone market; assuming it makes it to North America.

The big question next to the price point is why the name Axon 7? It’s the not the seventh in the line, nor do any of its specs have anything to do with seven. The best we can figure is that it’s due to the Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 7. Did ZTE just skip a handful of numbers in order to play catch up?
