Foldable, dual-screen ZTE Axon M (Multy) leaks out, could be announced on October 16


A few weeks back, we heard about the ZTE Axon Multy, an upcoming smartphone that reportedly packs two displays in a foldable design. Now, Android Authority seems to have a photo of said handset (included above), showing it semi-unfolded.

 

It's said that the two screens of this new ZTE Axon smartphone are both Full HD (1080 x 1920 pixels), and, when the device is fully open, they form a flat 6.8-inch display area with 1920 x 2160 pixels. To be clear, the two displays themselves are not foldable, but the device is, thanks to what appears to be a hinge system. Interestingly, the two screens may have the ability to show different apps at the same time, thus (likely) providing a superior multitasking experience. 

 

According to Android Authority, this new smartphone

might be released as ZTE Axon M. However, the leaked logo revealed earlier this month clearly reads "Axon Multy", not Axon M. Of course, ZTE has the liberty of changing the name as it wishes before actually announcing the device.

 

From what we can see, the Axon M / Axon Multy appears to be well designed, having a manageable thickness (the visible 3.5mm headset jack suggests that the phone could be under 10 mm thick). Inside, the device should have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage space, and a 3120 mAh battery. All in all, this new Axon will fall short of standing next to 2017 flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG V30, which are powered by the newer and faster Snapdragon 835.

 

The ZTE Axon M / Axon Multy might be officially unveiled on October 16 - ZTE already said that it would hold a press conference in New York on that day. As previously reported, the new handset could be exclusive to AT&T in the US, possibly costing around $650.

 

Do you think a smartphone like this can be successful? Or will it be just another niche product that doesn't really push the industry forward?
