ZTE launches foldable dual-screen smartphone

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

Smartphone maker ZTE has unveiled a dual-screen foldable smartphone Axon M at an event in the US. True innovative design seems to be a rarity, but ZTE is ready to change that with the all-new Axon M.

The standout feature of the newly announced smartphone is its overall look encompassing two 5.2-inch LCD screens connected with a hinge in a setup that allows the user to fold out the ZTE Axon M by 180 degrees and come as close to connecting the two panels as the hinge itself allows them to. The Axon M, with two displays connected by a hinge, is the interim solution until the future arrives. The Axon M is the first foldable smartphone with dual screens we've seen in years.

With these two screens, the ZTE Axon M offers a dual screen experience with four different operating modes, which include Dual mode, Extend mode, Mirror mode, and Traditional mode.

Veteran British actor Roy Dotrice dies aged 94
Dotrice also played Lincoln in Herbert Mitgang's one-man play " Mister Lincoln ", which opened in 1980 and later aired on PBS. Born on Guernsey, Dotrice joined the Royal Air Force and was trained as a wireless operator and air gunner.

ZTE will work with developers to help optimize applications for this new evolution of dual screen smartphones. The Extended mode combines the two displays into one, extending content across both screens.

Let's get back to the special appeal of this Android 7.1.2 smartphone - the screen modes and their usefulness. Unlike other Chinese smartphone makers, which have mostly moved to developing markets like India, ZTE has been one of the only players to find success in the US, where it is now No. 4 with almost 10% share, according to IDC. The idea behind the foldable Axon M remains the same, a hybrid phone that doubles as the tablet device. The rear-facing camera sports a 20MP sensor with dual image stabilization, and a dual LED flash, and it can record 4k video at 30fps.

It is powered by Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor clocked at 2.15Ghz and comes coupled with Adreno 510 GPU and 4GB of RAM. Driving this innovation was research cited by ZTE that 68 percent of smartphone owners report "frequently" switching between multiple apps on their phone; thus, ZTE designed the Axon M's dual functionality. The Axon M offers 64GB of internal storage space which is further expandable up to 256GB using a microSD card. The phone can't snap closed to protect both screens simultaneously, which means you're going to scratch it. AT&T has the exclusive in the USA from next month and will charge United States dollars 24.17 per month on a 30-month contract with an eligible service plan. It also supports Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology. The Chinese company also confirmed that the Axon M will later become available in other markets including China and Europe.
