ZTE Axon M is now official, the company’s first dual display smartphone that can rotate and manage two apps at the same time. Although it is a particular product, obviously, it is aimed at a niche of enthusiasts as the hinge does not allow to really connect the displays and that the features are not exactly optimized at the moment. However, an anticipation of what we will probably see next year and an attempt to stand out.
The weight of the device around 230 grams and 3000mAh battery capacity will be difficult to use for a long time with two active displays. ZTE Axon M has been launched exclusively on AT&T in the US and will be available starting next month. It will also be available in other markets including China, Europe, and Japan.
The ZTE Axon M also received FCC certification and comes to the Wi-Fi Alliance, which confines itself to confirming the version of the operating system, Android 7.1.2 Nougat, beyond the presence of dual bandwidth (2.4 and 5 GHz) connectivity. The handset packs 3180mAh battery and supports Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging.
For those who do not know it, Axon M should be a very interesting foldable smartphone featuring two Full HD rotatable displays that it can fit in a pocket easily when folded. The device comes with four modes including Dual mode, which will allow users to use two different apps in separate screens; Extended mode can stream email or allows users play games on a full 6.75-inch full-HD (1920 x 2160 pixels) display; Mirror mode, which allows users to mirror the same content on both the screen when folded with both screens in different directions, and Traditional mode, which allows users to use the device as a conventional smartphone.
ZTE Axon M features Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protected displays and it is powered by Snapdragon 821 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. For optics, the device bears a 20-megapixel single camera with f/1.8 aperture and LED flash, which can be used for rear and front-facing shots.
