The Axon Pro is their highest offering with a 5.5″ Quad HD display and it comes with 4GB of RAM and 32GB to 128GB of on-board storage. Meanwhile the ZTE Axon Elite is a notch down with a 5.5″ Full HD display, 3GB RAM and has 32GB of storage. Both comes with a microSD slot supporting up to 128GB for your extra storage needs.

The rest of the hardware are identical with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 Octa-Core processor that’s clocked at 2.0GHz. For taking pictures, it features a dual 13MP+2MP rear camera assisted with dual-LED flash. Selfies meanwhile are handled by its front facing 8MP camera that shoots with a wide 84 degree angle.

The feature list doesn’t end there either, as it comes with a biometric fingerprint scanner, voice control and an iris scanner. Also included is a AKM4961 HiFi chip, NFC and dual-SIM slots supporting 4G LTE. Powering the device is a 3,000mAh battery which can be juiced up faster with QuickCharge 2.0.
