The ZTE Axon Pro will no longer be lonely in the USA market. The manufacturer is making this morning exciting by launching a couple new offerings for those who simply don’t think the current offering was enough. These would be a 64 GB Axon Pro and the new Axon (the most affordable of the bunch).

Wait… so what about the other Axon – the one that was first announced and we even reviewed? I know it’s confusing – it turns out that device was renamed as the Axon Pro when it came to the USA, and the newer Axon is a different handset. Now that we have that cleared we can move on to the juicy part of the news.

Let’s step back a second and contemplate on the first paragraph, where I say people may think the Axon Pro is not enough. How could that be? The Axon Pro is a hell of a smartphone, but it only has one storage option and no microSD card support. That was inconvenient and quite annoying, to be frank. And though the smartphone is certainly affordable, it doesn’t quite hit that mid-end level yet. The new Axon Pro takes things a step above with superior storage, while the Axon tackles accessibility.

ZTE claims to have put close attention to users, which is the key reason why the main update in the higher-end handset is the addition of a 64 GB iteration. This will prove to be a major inclusion to Axon Pro fans who were holding off due to storage limitations.

On the other hand we have the ZTE Axon, with a lower resolution display and those dreaded, non-expandable 32 GB of internal storage. Those who don’t need too much storage or a fancy screen are in for a treat, though. The ZTE Axon is only $329.99. Meanwhile, the 32 GB Axon Pro has been dropped to $399.99, while the 64 GB iteration is now $449.99.
