The ZTE Axon M has been launched exclusively on AT&T in the US. It is priced at $725. Shipping starts next month.
The Chinese company has confirmed that the new smartphone will soon hit other markets including China, Europe, and Japan. However, there is no confirmation about an Indian launch.

The ZTE Axon M features two 5.2-inch TFT LCD display units with full HD (1080p) resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is powered by a 2.15GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor along with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage.
In terms of optics, the new smartphone sports a 20-megapixel rear camera with f/1.8 aperture, which can also be used as a front camera. You just need to flip the displays. The new handset is backed by a 3,180mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging support.

Instead of a bendable display, the new ZTE Axon M features a secondary screen that can be unfolded to get a 6.75-inch display. Despite thin bezels, the separation between two screens is quite visible. We might see a more seamless approach in future devices.
Users can configure the dual-displays in four different ways. A ‘Dual mode’ allows you to use the dual displays as two separate units with two applications running alongside each other. An ‘Extended mode’ combines the two displays into one. It extends your content across both screens. While a ‘Mirror mode’ runs the same content to run on both displays, while a ‘Traditional mode’ turns one display off to mimic a normal smartphone.
The ZTE Axon M runs Android 7.1.2 Nougat operating system. Other features include dual speakers, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM, 4G, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Sensors on the device include a Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, and Ambient light sensor.
ZTE is placing the new Axon M as a multimedia device that can easily be folded to fit in a pocket. It remains to be seen how user-friendly the new handset is in real-world scenarios. We hope the new handset makes it to Indian shores pretty soon. Are you excited about the new ZTE Axon M? Let us know in the comments section below.
