ZTE Launches The AXON Mini And AXON Watch In China, Makes Mention Of New AXON Max

The ZTE AXON Pro arrived in the US on August 1st, and similar options appeared elsewhere last month, giving smartphone buyers a chance to own a 5.5" screen with a Snapdragon 810 and 4GB of RAM for $450. Now the manufacturer has launched a smaller version of the device, the ZTE AXON Mini, in China. It's joined by the AXON Watch, which doesn't come with Android Wear. And while it's not available yet, ZTE announced that the larger AXON Max is on its way.

The AXON Mini is smaller, not small. You still get a 5.2" display, one that will offer pressure-sensitive touch.

ZTE Axon Elite Goes On Sale Outside US And Canada (Those Two Countries Have The Higher Spec'd Axon Pro)

After making its debut at IFA earlier this month, the ZTE Axon Elite is now available for purchase. eBay links are available for several countries across Europe, and there's a global link for most everywhere else in the world, excluding the US and Canada. Those two countries already have the similar Axon Pro, and the Axon Elite lacks the necessary bands.

The ZTE Axon Elite is a slick metal device that sports a 5.5-inch full HD display with Corning’s Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass (intended to keep things less gross). The inside is packed with a Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage (along with a microSD slot).

The AT&T / ZTE Mobley Is An LTE Hotspot For Your Car, Works Via OBD-II Port

We've seen mobile hotspots for cars before, but I don't think I've ever heard of one that uses the ODB-II communications port on your vehicle for power, freeing up that precious cigarette lighter for things like chargers. The ZTE Mobley is just that.

Power is, of course, provided from the ODB-II port on your vehicle, and the hotspot theoretically should only function when the vehicle is on or in accessory mode. This leaves your precious cigarette lighter free for things like chargers, and also removes the associated bulk of what is likely to be an at least semi-permanent accessory for your vehicle.

Corning's Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass Promises To Make Your Smartphone Screen Less Gross, ZTE's Axon Gets It First

Doorknobs. Keyboards. Mobile electronics of all kinds. I'll take "things that are always covered in germs and crap, and which I really prefer not to think about" for $400, Alex. Yes, all the things you touch every day have a nasty habit of leaving gunk on your touchscreen phone - it's kind of part and parcel of the whole "touch" thing. But Corning wants to make you feel a little less gross when you think about that with its new version of the ubiquitous Gorilla Glass.

ZTE And Verizon Wireless Would Like To Sell You The Android-Powered Spro 2 Smart Projector For $600 Off-Contract

ZTE? Hello, yes, this is Verizon. Verizon Wireless. Mmhmm. We heard that you were selling a smart projector through AT&T. Yes, that's right, the ZTE Spro 2. We'd like to offer it too.

Huh, exclusive? It's been nearly three months. That's long enough. We have a larger network than AT&T. We cover more of the country, which means there's a better chance we'll connect with someone who actually knows what a smart projector is and wants one. How many have you guys sold with AT&T anyway?

Yeah, I already know about the thing. The guy at the AT&T store told me everything I needed to know.
