Two 5.2-inch FHD screens connected by a hinge make the Axon M stand out in the current crop of smartphones. You can use the device in four ways:
- Dual mode. The ZTE Axon M lets you run two different apps at the same time, one on each display.
- Extended mode. You can watch videos or play games on a larger, 6.75-inch screen — what you get when the two displays are folded out.
- Mirror mode. You and a friend may be sitting across each other, but you can still watch the same content… on the same unit. Just fold the device like a tent then place it on a table for easy viewing from two separate sides.
- Traditional mode. Of course, you can still use the ZTE Axon M like your regular smartphone.
The ZTE Axon M in different modes
Inside is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chip coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. There’s a single, 20-megapixel camera to take photos with, a fingerprint reader that’s integrated into the power key, a 3,180mAh battery, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It’s running Android Nougat 7.1.2, which will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo.

Not exactly the most powerful when it comes to specs, we know. But the ZTE Axon M is still worth checking out, if only to see how well (or not) it has implemented the foldable-phone design that got buried when 2011’s Kyocera Echo didn’t take off.
The device will arrive in the United States in November for $725 or approximately P37,285. It’s also set to land in Japan, China, and still-unannounced European countries.
