Coming soon to consumers through leading partners in the US, Japan, China and Europe, the ZTE Axon M delivers new experiences never before seen in the smartphone market.

The dual mode allows you to open one app per screen and you can also use extended mode to enjoy full 6.75-inch canvas to work.

"The ZTE Axon M lets customers multitask and enjoy entertainment in new and exciting ways". When you fold it out, you get an identical 5.2-inch display that, when not in use, folds around the back and just turns this phone into a glass sandwich. "Pairing DIRECTV with the dual screen capabilities of the ZTE Axon M will deliver a new and transformative way to enjoy the entertainment they want on the network they need", said Kevin Petersen, SVP of Device and Network Services Marketing, AT&T Entertainment Group.

No, the ZTE Axon M does not have a foldable display, but has a rather interesting display mechanism. The multi-window feature on this device is called as Dual Mode and the user can open different apps on each display for flawless multi-tasking.

The last time we saw the Axon brand in the United States was with the Axon 7 in the summer of 2016, and while that handset was all about offering a traditional flagship smartphone experience on a budget, the Axon M is anything but traditional.

The new Axon M, isn't exactly the kind of foldable smartphone one would imagine. By the company's own accounting of its history, ZTE was a white-label manufacturer of phones before seeking to tag its own branding on the devices by "looking to sports sponsorships to grow consumer awareness, backing several National Basketball Association teams, and sponsoring teams in European club soccer and Australian rugby".

ZTE uses Android's native "split-screen" feature to allow two different apps to run on separate screens. However, the Axon M is way better looking than the Echo. So, for example, you can check Facebook on one screen while watching a movie on another.

The smartphone is built around a Snapdragon 821 chipset accompanied by 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Additionally, there is a 20MP camera with dual-LED flash and f1.8 aperture.

Available information showed that the device comes with a single 20-megapixel camera, that works both as standard and selfie camera, and also supports 4K video. The phone draws fuel from a 3,180mAh battery and ZTE claims a full day's battery life despite the two screens. Interestingly, there are dual speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack as well as a USB Type-C port on the device.
