However, the new Axon M launched by ZTE is no ordinary phone, it has two full-sized screens attached together with a hinge.

Earlier last month, we wrote about how foldable displays will soon make their entry in the smartphone market and revolutionise the industry forever.

The company ZTE introduced the original folding smartphone Axon M, equipped with two screens. The phone opens up like the Nintendo DS. The major selling point of the smartphone is the two 5.2-inch 1080p LCD screens.

Both of the displays on the device are full HD in panels and boast of a pixel density of 428ppi. Essentially, you can fold the phone to have a display on the front and back, or you could open it up and the two 5.2-inch displays will make up one 6.75-inch display that is separated by the hinge. Apple's iPhone X is an example [VIDEO] of a bold new redesign that has successfully captured the interest of consumers. Mirror Mode shows the same content on both the screen so that you and your friends can watch the same content on one device.

Today, they have made a clear statement: Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are so in love they want to take it a notch higher. Jonas, 28, and Turner, 21, may have earlier appeared on your Instagram feed way before they chose to set an altar date.


ZTE now sponsors four National Basketball Association teams - the Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, New York Knicks and Chicago Bulls, while previously having sponsored the Cleveland Cavaliers - and two players, Warriors superstar Stephen Curry and former Rockets guard, Patrick Beverley, who was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers this summer.

The result is a tablet-sized device that sort of looks like two regular smartphones sitting next to each other, only the home screen and apps can expand across both displays. Note that, all these modes can be toggled via the onscreen M button in the navigation bar. It is powered by a Snapdragon 821 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM. It packs 64GB of storage.

"In theory a foldable device provides a more tablet-like screen size yet remains pocketable like a phone", said IDC analyst Bryan Ma. The phone also offers dual speakers to give you the best of sound quality. Apparently, ZTE forgot to double the battery with a double screen and included a 3,180 mAh battery. Rs 47,150) and it is available with 30 months instalments of $24.17. You will be able to purchase this phone at $725 or you can go with the EMI scheme as well.

ZTE has revealed that the phone will be offered in the U.S. (via AT&T), Japan, China and Europe. It will be available for the holidays and will also come with a generous 2 year warranty.
