From a long time, we all have been hearing from many mobile set makers that they are thinking of making foldable smartphones. Many were claiming this but ZTE has done it successfully. Its name is Axon M. It is the ZTE’s first dual display smartphone that has a hinge so that it can be folded.
ZTE Axon M has been unveiled exclusively on AT&T in the United States of America. It will be available in the US from the next month. The Chinese company has announced that the Axon M will also be launched in other markets that include China, Europe, and Japan.
ZTE is busy in the marketing of the new Axon M smartphone as a multimedia device. It states that it can fit in a pocket conveniently when it is folded. There are four modes of the mobile phone. These four modes that include Dual mode, Extended mode, Mirror mode, and Traditional mode. First one is the Dual mode that will allow its users to use two different apps in separate screens. The second one is the Extended mode that can stream email and allows its users to play games on a full 6.75-inch full-HD display. The third one is the Mirror mode that allows its users to see the same thing on both of the screens when it is folded with both screens in different directions. Lastly, the fourth one is the Traditional mode that allows its users to use the mobile as a conventional smartphone. ZTE Axon M will be available at $24.17 (roughly Rs. 1,600 in India) for 30 months on AT&T Next.
As far as its specifications are concerned, the ZTE Axon M has two 5.2-inch dual full-HD TFT LCD displays. It also has a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is made by Snapdragon 821 SoC that might be a bit outdated.
On its launch, it is stated that “the ZTE Axon M is the beginning of a significant movement of smartphone capabilities, and ZTE is leading the way. The mobile technology ecosystem and consumer habits have evolved over the past several years, but the smartphone experience has only slightly varied throughout that time until today, with the introduction of the Axon M. Consumers need and expect more from their current smartphone and we are proud to collaborate with carriers around the world and AT&T in the US to transform their mobile experience.”
