ZTE Cyber Week deals: unlocked ZMAX 2 for $129, Axon Pro for $329, and more
ZTE may be a relative newcomer to the American market, but the Chinese company is quick to adapt, especially when it comes to marketing. ZTE is jumping on the Black Friday bandwagon, with a twist: its deals are valid from today through November 30.
The ZTE Cyber Week promo sees the price of several devices discounted by $50 to $100. That may not sound like a lot, but ZTE’s devices are already very affordable, so the discounts amount to 20-25% off the list price. Nothing to scoff at.
Here are the devices that ZTE is discounting in the US for the next seven days (the promo prices aren’t yet live, but they should be soon):
- Axon $279 ($50 off)
- Axon Pro 32GB $329 ($70 off)
- Axon Pro 64GB $349 ($100 off)
- ZMAX 2 Unlocked $129 ($50 off)
- Spro 2 WiFi $449 ($100 off)
ZTE connoisseurs will notice the presence of the ZMAX 2 Unlocked on the list. This is a brand new version of the ZMAX 2 that ZTE launched exclusively for AT&T back in September. Combining a large 5.5-inch HD display with decent specifications and a 3,000 mAh battery, this device is billed as a phone for the pragmatists – users who just want a solid experience at a low price. At $179, the ZMAX 2 certainly fits the bill. At $129, the device is a no-brainer. Here are the full specs:
