We already knew a bunch of stuff about ZTE's Axon 7 mini thanks to this leak from over a month ago and this leak from a few days ago, but now it's official. The creatively-named Axon 7 mini has, unfortunately, had a specs decrease from the Axon 7, but it still seems like a solid mid-ranger.

Visually, the Axon 7 mini looks almost identical to its big brother. The only hardware addition we can see is a new small "Dolby Audio" label on the lower back. Otherwise, this is a pretty faithful mini-me.

Spec-wise, this thing aims to compete with phones like the HTC One A9 (not the new, crappy One A9s) and the Moto G4. It comes with a 5.2" 1080p AMOLED display, Snapdragon 617, and 3GB of RAM. Those numbers are on-par with the competition's.

Compared with the Axon 7, it's sporting 32GB of storage (half as much), a 16MP f/1.9 rear camera (from a 21MP f/1.8 unit), the same 8MP front-facing camera, and a smaller 2,705mAh battery (compared to 3250mAh). It still comes with dual front-facing speakers, albeit with less powerful ones. Also worth noting is that the Axon 7's Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 has been downgraded to 2.0 in the mini.

Colors include Ion Gold (the same gold as the Axon 7's) and Platinum Grey (not the Axon 7's Quartz Grey, for whatever reason).

If you're interested, the Axon 7 mini will cost €299 ($333) later this month in Australia, Germany, India, Japan, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Spain. For what it's worth, the standard Axon 7 goes for €409 in Europe. The mini will be coming to America, but we don't have any pricing or availability info yet.
