ZTE Axon M price and release date

Is this the future of smartphones?

Chinese manufacturer ZTE is arguably taking the biggest shot at something new with the dual screen Axon M, unveiled Tuesday morning in NY. By default, that second display mirrors the primary. The implementation isn't very seamless as there's a visible gap between the two displays.

Maybe the Axon M will be most useful for productivity apps, allowing you to type away on a document in landscape mode without obscuring three-quarters of the screen with a keyboard.

Dual Mode: Use the two screens independently to do separate tasks. That kind of experience will need some effort on the part of developers, though.

Being more productive is where ZTE thinks the Axon M can gain a foothold. No exact release date was given, but we know that the smartphone will be out sometime in "the next month", running Android 7 Nougat out of the box. A 20 MP rear-facing camera with an F1.8 aperture is included, and a 3,180-mAh battery sits inside, but you're not really going to be buying this for the specs.

To be clear, the Axon M isn't the first smartphone we've seen with two screens, as the Kyocera Echo did this way back in 2011.

While having two displays is a neat enough party trick on its own, ZTE is ensuring that it makes of much use of the Axon M's two displays as possible.

With Apple, Samsung, and Google dominating the smartphone market in recent years, at least in the United States and Europe, it's going to be hard for the Axon M to muscle in, even with a unique selling point - but ZTE at least deserves kudos for trying something new. In the USA, the ZTE Axon M will be exclusively sold by AT&T, costing $24.17 per month for 30 months, or $725 outright. Further worldwide availability and pricing is yet to be announced.
