Later in the year, ZTE announced the launch of an upgraded version of ZTE Axon 7 which is named as Limited Edition ZTE Axon 7 at $499.98 (approximately Rs 34,030). The new version comes with Force Touch technology and improved memory configuration.

For instance, with a longer press, you might activate sharing functionality in the gallery while a light press might be attributed to the editing function.
