ZTE's foldable smartphone spotted at FCC one week ahead of official announcement
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.
