We might finally have foldable smartphone soon… sort of.

The name? The ZTE Axon M! However, it is not the plastic kind of foldable as we have seen from Lenovo. I think what ZTE did here was to revolutionize flip phones. Instead of the plastic-ish foldable phones that have been teased over the years, ZTE is going with a dual screen design. Fold the phone and you have two screens. One on the front and one at the back. Unfold the phone and you have a 6.8-inch 2,160×1,920 viewing surface.

Its looks retro… I dig it. Image Credit: Android Authority

From the above picture, the Axon M kinda looks like the Nokia N900 that was released back in 2009. The good thing is that the phone has gotten FCC certification which means it’s one step closer to hitting stores. Maybe not Nigerian stores but whatever. It still looks exciting though.

As for specs, it’s comes with Android 7.1 (not 8.0 Oreo), has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a single 20MP rear camera and all of that (and more) is powered by a 3120mAh battery. I think the battery capacity should have been bigger since both screens will be Full-HD but I’ll keep shut. Plus the phone looks like a fingerprint magnet, hence easily prone to smudge. But ZTE might have a created some kind of technology to prevent, or atleast, reduce it.

The price? Around $680 (N250K). So you like?
