ZTE plans on releasing more foldable phones like the Axon M

Axon M will be a series of foldable phones – not just phones with two screens.

Towards the end of 2017, ZTE made a surprise announcement with the Axon M. The Axon M is the latest phone to tackle the dual-screen smartphone, and it’s the first big attempt we’ve seen since the Kyocera Echo back in 2011. The Axon M is not a perfect phone, but unlike a lot of the competition, it took a risk to try something different.

In an interview with Engadget, ZTE’s Vice President of Marketing, Jeff Yee, confirmed that the Axon M will not be the last of its kind. Yee says that ZTE will release successors to the M, and throughout the interview, Yee reiterates that the Axon M is a foldable phone, not one with two screens.

While the current iteration of the Axon M very clearly has two separate screens, Yee says that ZTE’s end goal is to release a phone with one single display that can fold in and out depending on how much screen real-estate you want to use.

It’s unlikely that the next version of the Axon M will utilize this tech, but even so, it’s clear that this is the direction the mobile industry is very quickly heading. Samsung is reportedly planning to start production of its foldable smartphone by the end of 2018, and ZTE likely won’t be the last company to follow in its footsteps.

Aside from the single foldable screen, what else would you like to see from future Axon M releases?
