A Chinese multinational company is looking to reboot the design trends in smartphones. Today’s mobile market looks like it climaxed in certain points. All the latest products display similar visual features, and only certain details make a difference. However, ZTE dared to digress from this course with a bold move. The company has just launched Axon M that comes with dual screen.
Axon M Offers New Opportunities Thanks to Its Dual Screen
On Tuesday, ZTE revealed a new entry in the mobile phone market. The new smartphone is called Axon M and bears a striking edge that differentiates it from the competition. The phone features two screens. The mounting offers the possibility of two dispositions. Users can either use the primary display or flip open the phone to activate the second one.
The moment both screens are locked next to the other, they create a larger display. However, users can choose to leave the two of them to work independently if they need their phone for multitasking.
Axon M brings a breath of fresh air in an overcrowded industry that is populated mostly by lookalike metal-and-glass products. The biggest redesign move this year was the elimination of the bezel. Even though the display looks cleaner this way, the change is hardly innovative.
Therefore, even though ZTE has a background of budget phones only, the redesign was enough to grab the attention of masses. In its initial standby, the gadget presents itself with a 5.2-inch screen, 20-megapixel camera, a 2016 processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, and 4GB of RAM. However, once users flip the phone over, they will be looking at a dual screen.
Axon M Will Be Available for Purchase in the U.S. and Japan Only
The company chose to go with a hinge instead of other available bindings in order to recreate the looks and feels of a small-sized tablet. Users can either employ the stretched phone as one screen or work on two apps at the same time.
They can also leave the phone with each screen on each side and mirror the content on both of them. This way, other people can watch a video at the same time with the owner of the phone. ZTE will start selling the new smartphone by the end of 2017. However, it will be available only in America and Japan at first.
