ZTE is a leading smartphone manufacturer and we are proud that ZTE selected FPC1025 for Axon Mini, following up on the success of Axon, also embedding FPC1025,” said FPC CEO Jörgen Lantto. “FPC1025 supports 360 degree finger rotation capability, fast response time and industry leading 3D image quality.”
