Well, it’s been a long time since we saw any foldable smartphone. In 2017, the foldable smartphones do not seem to fit itself. I remember, my last foldable smartphone was Nokia N97 mini. However, if recent rumors are to be believed, the ZTE is going to launch a new foldable smartphone, in mid-October, – ZTE Axon M. Unlike, other folding smartphones, the Axon M will fold in opposite sides, which means when closed it will look like the regular smartphone, with screens on both sides.
On the other hand, the concept/prototype phones like Samsung X, Xiaomi bendable screen, etc. are some example of flexible displays. But, the Axon M will not be flexible, it’s just a foldable, with independent screens on either side, attached with some kind of hinge.
The ZTE Axon M will have two separate panels with 1080p resolution each and minimal bezels where the two screens meet, that’s interesting. The Axon Multy/M has dual HD screens that unfold into a 6.8-inch, 1,920 x 2,160 display. Closed, it’s less than 10mm thick, according to the source the smartphone will have a Snapdragon 820 chip with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 3,120mAh battery, and a single 20MP camera.
Actually, if we look at the recent trend the demand for bigger smartphone is increasing, on the other hand, the tablets are being ignored. So, the new trick with ZTE Axon M might be useful for replacing larger screens. Again, the rumors are also telling that each screen can display two separate apps at the same time, a true multi-tasking at its best. The phone is expected to be exclusive in the US and retail for $650 (Rs. 67,000 only).
