SHANGHAI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ZTE Mobile Devices today announced the category defining ZTE Axon M, a foldable smartphone with dual screens that delivers a revolutionary smartphone experience to enable consumers to multitask and enjoy content in a better way. The ZTE Axon M provides the multitasking capabilities of two screens and a viewable screen size of a tablet, yet is the size of a traditional smartphone when folded, fitting easily into a pocket. 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 ZTE Axon M is the beginning of true smartphone innovation, and ZTE is leading the way,” said Lixin Cheng, CEO of ZTE Mobile Devices. “The mobile technology ecosystem and consumer habits have evolved over the past several years, but the smartphone design has only slightly varied throughout that time until today, with the introduction of the Axon M. Consumers need and expect more from their current smartphones and we are proud to partner with carriers around the world to transform their mobile experience.”
The foldable smartphone ZTE Axon M with dual screens provides unlimited potential through enhancing consumers’ mobile experience with four different modes:
Dual Mode (A/B): One Device, Two Screens, Unlimited Potential
Allowing consumers to use two apps on two different screens at the same time, Dual mode provides unlimited potential in app combinations so consumers can do more, all at once. Watch your favorite professional basketball team or PGA tournament one screen while ordering a pizza online with the second screen. Watch your favorite show and message friends at the same time on the latest plot twists. Or update your social status while checking your weekly calendar.
Extended Mode (/-\): Tablet-Like Experience
Consumers can stream, email and play games on a full 6.75-inch Full HD display through Extended mode. From Candy Crush Saga to Google Calendars to shopping online and many more, you can view content on a larger screen when wanted, to make your experience easy, seamless and efficient.
Mirror Mode (A/A): Share Content Without Crowding
Viewing any content with a large group of friends has never been easier. Mirror mode allows consumers to display the same content at the same time on both screens, whether it is the latest movie or a Powerpoint presentation or the latest viral video. Simply fold the device in Mirror mode and place it on a table for easy viewing from two separate sides of the device.
Traditional (A): A Familiar Smartphone Experience
The ZTE Axon M delivers a premium smartphone experience for those wanting a great, everyday smartphone without sacrificing anything. Consumers can make phone calls, text, browse the web and more from one screen when folded, fitting easily into a pocket.
