ZTE Axon M Foldable Smartphone with Dual Displays Launched in the US

ZTE Axon M announced: AT&T exclusive dual screen smartphone functions in four modes ZTE Axon M is the first dual-screen smartphone that actually looks decent

It's a full-featured Android smartphone with two full-size displays, which are connected by a hinge, making the Axon M a modern-day flip phone. While the handset doesn't feature the best hardware to date, the Shenzhen-based original equipment manufacturer isn't highlighting its basic internal specs as some of its selling points. The foldable ZTE Axon M opens up and can operate in dual, mirror, and extend screen modes, offering up some useful and unique possibilities. Through a dedicated button on the side it lets the user switch between different modes.

As for what you can do with two screens, ZTE offers a few neat tricks, all focusing on either multitasking or sharing whatever it is you're watching with another person. "When you unfold it, you get a total viewing area of 6.75", but the bezels don't help create the illusion that you're looking at one screen and not two. The phone is backed by a 3180mAh battery and runs Android 7.1.2 Nougat out of the box. The dual screens are attached to each other thanks to a hinge which holds one display attached to the body.

The result is a tablet-sized device that sort of looks like two regular smartphones sitting next to each other, only the home screen and apps can expand across both displays. The device features two 5.2-inch displays and is meant to solve the multitasking pain point. "Extended mode" merges the screen into a single, giant display. It is powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.

Foldable phones like Axon M and Samsung's much anticipated Galaxy X which is reported to come to the market with a foldable display in 2018, will again kick-start a period of innovation that was that was last seen only in 2007 when the first iPhone changed our lives forever.

ZTE's Axon M has been launched in the USA exclusively on AT&T, and will go on sale starting next month.

ZTE announced the Axon M amid hints that competitors are gearing up to also release foldable devices.

ZTE isn't the first to offer a dual-screen phone, observers noted, pointing out that South Korea's Kyocera and Japan's NEC had experimented with the format in models that failed to catch on.

There's also a 3,180 mAh battery with USB-C providing power, something that seems pretty impressive considering all the extra tech packed inside of the 12.1mm body. Here's the deal: There's only one camera that takes both selfie and rear shots.
