ZTE Axon M with dual-screen smartphone officially launches

ZTE Axon M announced: AT&T exclusive dual screen smartphone functions in four modes

Earlier today ZTE launched an innovative new smartphone which leverages dual 5.2-inch colour displays. 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. ZTE's previous Axon smartphones lacked support from both OtterBox and LifeProof; the Axon M is not expected to be supported by either of them.

The ZTE Axon M is a foldable smartphone that uses two displays that measure 5.2-inches each.

For many of our readers who have been waiting years for a folding phone, does this device pique your interest? Dual screens obviously offer some excellent multitasking options for users, if not significantly "transforming the mobile experience", as touted by Lixin Cheng, CEO of ZTE Mobile Devices.

'LG Display recently created a task force to develop a foldable OLED screen for the new iPhone model, while its parts-making sister firm LG Innotek has also setup a team dedicated to developing the rigid flexible printed circuit board, more widely called RFPCB, ' the Investor says.

Consumers can stream, email and play games on a full 6.75-inch Full HD display through Extended mode. There's a fingerprint sensor and it runs Android Nougat stock.

Use it as a tent: Flip out the secondary screen and give mirror the screen, on this mode, the secondary display will show the same things that are being carried out in the primary display in the real time. Apps that haven't been optimized won't recognize the gap - where the hinge that connects the two displays is - in the middle. These screens not only make the display bigger but also provide a next generation interactive interface.

The ZTE Axon M is certainly different, and ZTE feels bullish enough about the product that it is launching it exclusively with AT&T in the US.

Chinese phone maker ZTE is known to launch smartphones in all price ranges, and a lot of them are regular phones.

While it seems like a concept that is great for multitaskers, it isn't really a super choice when the battery is concerned because the device packs a 3180 mAh battery to power the two screens. Since it comes with dual displays, the single camera can be used as front and rear cameras.

Since there is no any confirmation regarding the launch of this phone in other markets, we could expect that the company will make this phone available to other markets such as Europe, China and Japan before the end of this year. The Axon M even includes a 3.5mm audio jack along with an AKM 4962 HiFi main chipset for HiFi listening and recording.
