Mid-cycle refreshes are apparently all the rage this year. Just as OnePlus bumps up to the OnePlus 3T, rival ZTE is today rolling out a new limited edition Axon 7 with upgraded specs. The new model will sell for $499.98 through the company's online store, and boasts 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (compared to the original's 4GB/64GB), along with a pressure-sensitive Force Touch display.
This wouldn't be the first time we've seen Force Touch in an Android phone. A limited edition Huawei Mate S featured the tech in 2015, as did the P9 Plus earlier this year. Today's Axon presser says Force Touch will allow for a "more intuitive user experience," but it's light on details of exactly how it'll make that happen. (Huawei's implementation featured iOS-style app shortcuts and the ability to zoom in on photos, among more dubious offerings.)
