Smartphones have come up a long way with lots of evolutionary changes, improvements, and innovation in the design, features, and aesthetics. They are becoming sleeker and appealing with every new launch. Phone manufacturers have to innovate and innovate well in order to survive in the midst of tremendous competition in the smartphone industry. ZTE, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has been associated for innovating new smartphone technologies for quite some time and recently it has been reported to have developed what it is said to be a dual-screen folding smartphone.
The ZTE Axon M which was previously referred as the ZTE Axon Multy is rumored to be launching this month (probably at the company’s event on October 17). The ZTE Axon X is said to sport dual Full HD displays, which folds out into a 6.8-inch display with 1,920 x 2,160 pixels resolution. When folded, the handset looks to function as a regular smartphone with a relatively sleek frame. As per the earlier leaks and rumors, the phone will feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 Gb of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage and a 3120 mAh battery.
In terms of optics, the smartphone will sport a single camera that will be a 20MP sensor that pivots to work either as a rear or front camera. The device is further said to be sub-10-millimeter in thickness even in the folded state. The phone will use Android’s multitasking feature to let the user look at two applications at a time, one application on each screen. The pricing of the phone is reported to be around $650.
Talking about the foldable smartphones, Samsung is the first name that strikes our mind. Samsung has also been involved in designing a foldable smartphone, the Galaxy X, which might get launched next year. However, it seems ZTE is in a rush to launch a foldable smartphone well ahead of Samsung.
