World’s First Foldable Smartphone, ZTE Axon M, Could Be Announced This Octobersystemdigits.com
Rumours of a new foldable phone from ZTE has been going around for some weeks, and now, Android Authority has shared pictures of this upcoming phone. The new device is codenamed Axon Multy and could launch as the ZTE Axon M. It sports dual Full HD displays and when folded, the handset looks to function as a regular smartphone and will be sub-10-millimeter in thickness. The two screens are also said to meet at the hinge and fold out to form a wide 6.8-inch 2,160 x 1,920 viewing surface.
Axon M will reportedly come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM. But it will fall short of standing next to flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S8 or HTC U11 which feature the more powerful and efficient Snapdragon 835. It will come with 32GB of internal storage and a 3120mAh battery.
Instead of having a separate rear and front camera, ZTE Axon M will feature a single 20-megapixel camera that pivots to face either direction. There are no hints towards which version of Android the phone will launch with.
ZTE will hold a press conference in New York City on October 17, and it’s likely that the Axon M will be announced therein. Unfortunately, it looks like the smartphone will initially be exclusive to U.S. customers only.
