The foldable, dual-screened ZTE Axon M is now one step closer to store shelves, since it's been certified by the US FCC. The handset, codenamed Axon Multy, is expected to be unveiled on October 17 at an event in Brooklyn. It will be exclusive to AT&T, at least at first, and has been rumored to retail for $650.
The phone's main claim to fame will clearly be its foldable design, featuring two touchscreens. When it's folded, the Axon M will have a screen both on its front and its back - definitely a novel look. These are said to come with 1080p resolution each. When unfolded, you'll have a 6.8-inch 2,160x1,920 viewing surface.
The FCC listing confirms the Axon M name and tells us that its model number will be Z999. It also reveals that the phone will ship running Android 7.1.2 Nougat, and not the newer Oreo unfortunately. Spec-wise you should expect to get the Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage, a single 20 MP camera, and a 3,120 mAh battery.
if they stick around then they're obviously more than just a fad. lost your brain, kid?
