ZTE Axon M

The foldable smartphone from ZTE has been in the limelight for sometime now. Interestingly now, the ZTE Axon M has appeared on Geekbench. ZTE has gone in with some surprising specifications that suggests that the Axon M may not be the company’s flagship smartphone.

The concept of foldable smartphone is pretty new to the smartphone industry and hence the device may go on to become a sensation if the company does it right. It is worthy to note that even Samsung is working on a foldable device (Samsung CEO has confirmed the news) which is expected to be dubbed the Galaxy X. However, the smartphone is not expected to come out only in 2019, making the Axon M the first foldable smartphone when it launches.

Taking a look at the specs, ZTE has opted to go with the Snapdragon 821 SoC instead of the latest Snapdragon 835 SoC. That said, the SD 821 is still a very good chipset considering the Single-Core score of 1677 points.

The ZTE Axon M is expected to sport two 1080p displays with a total resolution of 2,160 x 1,920 pixels. For multi-tasking duties, we can see 4GB of RAM included and the handset is seen running Android 7.1.2 Nougat.

According to previous rumours, the smartphone will include 32GB of on-board storage and will be fuelled by a 3120mAh battery. As for optics, a 20MP rear camera is expected to make the cut while we do not have any information about the front facing camera.

The ZTE Axon M will be unveiled in Brooklyn on October 17. Foldable smartphones may well be the next big thing in the tech industry.
