The folding smartphone is here, and it's pretty interesting

ZTE Axon M announced: AT&T exclusive dual screen smartphone functions in four modes

Capitalizing on the Axon M's dual functionality for sports appears to be a natural fit given how fans increasingly seek a two-screen experience for viewing and a companion source of social media chatter, statistics or multi-tasking with email or anything else. "Their solution is to provide users with not one, but two 5.2" screens in the Axon M. Each display is a 1080P TFT FHQ Gorilla Glass display with 426 PPI.

The device comes with a dual-display design which can be folded into a traditional smartphone.

The centerpiece of the Axon M are its dual 5.2-inch displays, which both feature a resolution of 1920x1080. Finally, individuals can switch to Traditional Mode when they want their handset to behave like a normal smartphone with one display.

ZTE will work with developers to help optimize applications for this new evolution of dual screen smartphones.

The Axon M will be available in November, exclusively on AT&T in the US, selling for $24.17 per month for 30 months or $725.

Although ZTE hasn't revealed the price of its featured phone which will launch on November 17, it is expected to be cheaper than both iPhone X and Note 8. Users can either employ the stretched phone as one screen or work on two apps at the same time.

Mirror Mode: Sit across from your friends and watch the same content on one device.

Because of its unique design that employs a hinge to fold the phone's body, the phone uses a single 20 Megapixel sensor as the front and back camera. As for the pricing, the ZTE Axon M can be bought by paying $24.17 per month, which roughly translates to Rs. 1,600 per month.

Under the hood, the Axon M isn't quite a flagship, but it's in the same ballpark. Expect to also see the device launching in China, Europe, and Japan at some point in the future. There is 64GB of internal storage that can be expandable up to 256GB via a MicroSD card slot.

If you thought that going bezel-less was the next big thing in the smartphone industry, you might have been right, but it seems we're already onto something far more interesting.

ZTE launched the phone as it struggles for recognition in a smartphone space where models increasingly look the same, featuring large rectangular touchscreens powered by Google's free Android operating system.

There's also a 3,180 mAh battery with USB-C providing power, something that seems pretty impressive considering all the extra tech packed inside of the 12.1mm body.
