ZTE has been branching out its mobile business quite a bit lately. Experimenting with various concepts, like the nubia Red Magic, just to see what sticks. Still, one family has been notably missing from the Chinese manufacturer's lineup for quite some time.
The Axon brand has a history of housing interesting high-end and often conceptual devices, like the folding dual-display Axon M or the Axon 7, with its amazing Dolby Atmos stereo speaker setup.
