ZTE Axon M is Now Official: Dual Display Foldable Phone, With S821 CPU and 20 MP Camera

By Radu Iorga

After some teasers and hype, the ZTE Axon M finally became official today. Just as predicted it’s a dual display machine, with a hinge down the middle and it feels very much like a relative of the Nintendo DS and Sony Tablet P somehow, but more stylish. Let’s see what the fuss was all about.

Confirmed and leaked last month, the ZTE Axon M is a dual display device, that was previously also known as ZTE Axon Multy. It features a dual 5.2 inch screen setup with Full HD resolution. When both the screens are unfolded, opened up like a book you’ll get a 6.75 inch tablet-like display to play with. There’s also a Mirror Mode, which is ideal to use when the device is in tend mode and offers the user an extra screen to watch content on.

It’ll also duplicate whatever is on the screen on the other one to create a mirror image. There’s also a Traditional Mode, with the phone folded up and used as a standard smartphone with a single display. A Dual Mode is the most interesting one, letting the user run two apps, one on each screen, for extra productivity and multitasking. Finally, the Extended Mode combines both screens into one.

 

Specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, as well as a microSD card slot. There’s a 20 megapixel camera, that can be used as both the front and back cam, plus a 3180 mAh battery here. USB Type-C connectivity and Android 7.1.2 also make the cut. As far as availability is concerned, the handset comes exclusively to USA, priced at $24.17 for 30 months. You can also pay $725 outright.

Dual speakers are included and we also have an audio jack. More details about availability and debut will be published here.

ZTE launches crazy, foldable, dual-screened smartphone

By Ron Amadeo

ZTE

Budget Android company ZTE is launching what has to be its craziest-looking smartphone ever, the Axon M. The M looks like someone took a Nintendo DS, removed the controls, and stuck two big smartphone screens on each side.

The Axon M is a whopping 12.1mm thick. A hinge runs along the long side of the phone, and it opens up, just like a Nintendo DS. On each side of the phone, you get a 5.2-inch, 1080p TFT LCD. Open the whole thing up, and when combined the screens sort of become a 6.75-inch, 8:9 aspect ratio, 1920×2160 display. I say “sort of” because of course there’s a big seam down the middle.

ZTE Axon M (Z999) Foldable Phone Gets Certified by the FCC

By Radu Iorga

The ZTE Axon M foldable phone has leaked once before, but today it gets a bit closer to its official unveiling, thanks to an FCC certification. The device has been certified and it’s going to be announced on October 17th. We have details below.

This device is supposed to open up like a book and it has a hinge in the middle, that connects the two parts. Codenamed Z999, this foldable phone has been certified by the FCC and it comes with Bluetooth, WiFi a/b/g/n dual band and NFC. There’s also carrier aggregation, LTE-Advanced and VoLTE. The documents also mention a foldable case and the when opening it the device is about 150 mm in length and 140 mm in width.

There’s an AT&T Mobility label here and the OS of choice is Android 7.1.2 Nougat. ZTE Axon M is going to be one of the few mainstream devices that has some degree of flexibility, or better said foldability. You will open and close it up, using a hinge that connects both screens. It should end up pretty beefy, dangerously closer to a Nintendo DS, rather than the Samsung Galaxy X.

I guess we’ll learn more next week, when the device debuts. I’m expecting to be pleasantly surprised for some reason.

Folding Tablet/Phone Hybrid is Actually Real and Coming to AT&T; Not the Microsoft Surface Device You Were Waiting on, Though

By Radu Iorga

Remember when the word got out that Microsoft was preparing a tablet/phone hybrid that would come to AT&T exclusively? It was said to be the prodigal Surface Phone and appear in the form of a flexible machine, that went from phone to tablet in seconds. Now it seems that such a device is indeed coming to AT&T, but not made by Microsoft.

Instead it’ll be a ZTE product, dubbed Axon Multy and Evan Blass has the deets on it. The device will be a dual screen machine, that will fold open into a 6.8 inch tablet. When closed it looks like a big clamshell phone with 2 Full HD screens on the outside at the front and back side. When you open it up, it’s able to form a seamless 6.8 inch panel and inside we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU, 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage.

There’s also a 3120 mAh battery in the mix. A 20 megapixel camera also makes the cut, serving double duty for front and back shots. It runs on Android and it should debut in October on AT&T, priced at around $650. It’s also meant as a promotional device, since it should promote the AT&T DirecTV streaming TV service. We don’t have any images of the device leaked just yet, but we’re happy to learn that some company is testing that revolutionary format.

Last we heard Lenovo also had something of the sort in the pipeline. No word on an international launch, but odds are small for that to happen.
