In the retail Axon 7 Mini will be sold for 300 euros. Basically, it’s a good value for the middle segment of the device, but the competitors had a lot from large to small companies. But if the Russian office will delight us with a price tag of 20 thousand rubles, the model will feel much more comfortable as compared to other devices in the same segment.
