After curved and thin bezels, the world of Android is on the cusp of a new innovation. But we honestly think ZTE tried to rush the innovation before it got ripe. Yup we are talking about true foldable displays and in ZTE’s case the newly launched ZTE Axom M. You see, when we talk about foldable displays we mean a single screen phone that can bend and morph into a tablet. That is clearly not the case with the ZTE Axon M. OEMs like Sony and Kyocera have already tread the path ZTE is walking on right now. So no, thanks, ZTE. Better luck next time. But still, let’s take a look at the specs at least.
The Axon M consists of two separate 5.2-inch 1080p displays when unfolded become seemingly one 10-inch display with an ugly annoying line running right in the centre. If you can get past that, then great. You’ll like the device. The two screens can either run the same thing on both frames, or become one and display a 10-inch interface.
Besides this, it’s an Android device like any other. Snapdragon 821, 4 GB RAM, single 20 MP camera, 3,180 mAh battery, headphone jack and the usual connectivity options. It does have Android Nougat, BTW. It will be sold in Japan by NT Docomo, and the US by AT&T exclusively. Price in the US is $725.
