BMW's Designworks has a storied history. The design firm has created evocative products for over 40 years, with more recent efforts including AR goggles for carmaker MINI and bobsleds for the U.S. Olympic team. It also made this excellent PC chassis in collaboration with Thermaltake. The design studio is now partnering with Chinese manufacturer ZTE over the design of its upcoming phone, the Axon 7.
From the sketch, it looks like the Axon 7 will offer dual front speakers, as well as a fingerrint sensor at the back. The phone's listing on TENAA suggests we'll see a 5.5-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB storage, 20MP camera, 8MP front camera, 3140mAh battery, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. ZTE is aiming to solidify its position in the U.S., and as such we may see the Axon 7 offered at a very competitive price, severely undercutting the likes of the Galaxy S7.
The phone will make its debut on May 26. Who's interested?
