The ZTE Axon 7 mini launched back in September last year. It's basically a smaller, cheaper, and lower-end alternative to the Chinese company's Axon 7 smartphone. Already available in several countries, the Axon 7 mini will go on sale in Canada this week.
Carrier Virgin Mobile will be offering it for CAD 399 (around $305) outright. Of course, it'll also be available on a regular 2 year contract, costing CAD 49.
Unlike the US variant, Canadian Axon 7 mini units won't be running the custom MiFavor UI - reports say the software will offer a more stock experience. Also, the Canadian variant won't offer support for dual-SIM.
