ZTE Axon Lux bets on the faux-leather design and runs on Lollipop with MiFavor 3.2 UI on top. It features three types of biometric security - fingerprint scanner, voice recognition and eye-scanner. NFC secure payments are supported, of course.
The ZTE Axon Lux will launch at $625 and for now it will be on sale only in China.
The regular ZTE Axon, which already debuted in USA and Canada, has now be confirmed it will make it to China as well. It doesn't have a the faux leather back, comes with a lower 1080p resolution 5.5" display, keeps the Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass and the Snapdragon 810 chip but with "just" 3GB RAM, and comes with 32GB expandable storage.
