ZTE's foldable smartphone spotted at FCC one week ahead of official announcement
“Axon M” seems to be the name ZTE picked for its first foldable smartphone. Information about the said device emerged online last month, although it didn't come through official channels.
Well, it appears that ZTE is indeed planning to launch a foldable handset and, as the previous report claimed, the Axon M may be officially unveiled on October 17.
A foldable phone with model number ZTE Z999 recently made a stop at FCC (Federal Communications Commission), which means the device is one step closer to launch.
The main selling point of the ZTE Axon M (Multy) is the dual-screen with full HD (1080p) resolution. Basically, the two panels of the phone form a much larger 6.8-inch display with 1920 x 2160 pixels resolution when it's unfolded.
The rest of the phone's specs are nothing to be impressed about considering it wants to be a high-end device. Rumor has it, the Axon M will pack a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB RAM and 32GB internal memory. Also, the foldable smartphone will be powered by a 3,120 mAh battery.
Since the technical details haven't been confirmed yet, we sincerely hope that ZTE will replace the Snapdragon 820 CPU with another one of a newer generation. On the bright side, the smartphone is expected to cost around $650 outright, which makes it much cheaper than most other flagships available in the United States.
