Flip phones are cool, scratch that, flip phones are still cool. For some time now we have been waiting for their return and sadly, not much has happened since the first died off a few years ago, until today.
Today ZTE unveiled a new prototype device that they have named the ZTE Axom M, which is a foldable device that brings the flip phone into the modern era with two displays that expand the possibilities of the smartphone with more real estate when you need it.
In terms of specifications, the ZTE Axom M features a set of two 5.2-inch displays that fold out into one larger 10.4-inch display.
Both of these feature a Full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and can be used either as one large display or as single displays with one on the front and one of the back.
All of this is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of inbuilt storage.
On top of that, there is a microSD card slot for up to 2TB of extra storage.
The smartphone also features a single 20-megapixel camera that has a f/1.8 aperture, which is placed on the back of the handset and will become a front-facing camera when the device is flipped. It also features a 3,180mAh battery alongside Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi, and LTE.
It will also run on Android 7.1.2 Nougat.
