Popular Chinese manufacturer ZTE will soon launch Axon M, a foldable dual-screen smartphone. The unconventional looking Android phone will be probably a unique phone created by ZTE, which is famous for its affordable smartphones.

As per a report in ARS Technica, the 12.1 mm thick model will have two screens with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection that runs along the sides of a hinge. Both screens come with 5.2-inch, 1920 x 1080 pixels  TFT LCD display individually. When opened together the combined screen will have 6.75-inch display coming with 1920x2160 pixels and a 16:9 aspect ratio.

On the camera front, both screens will have a 4k enabled 20 MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture. Though there will be no front camera the fact that the cameras on both screens can be operated as front camera, negates this disadvantage.

Running on an Android 7.1.2 operating system, the smartphone comes with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB ROM along with a MicroSD Memory slot that can be expandable up to 256GB.

Powered by a 2.15 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the smartphone will have 3180 mAh battery that will provide 28.7 hours of talktime and a standby time of 12 days.

The foldable smartphone will be available in the US market by next month. While the model will also be available in several western and Asian markets the details about its Indian launch is not yet available.
